After the Galaxy Note 4 last week, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is the latest device branded by Verizon to receive an upgrade to Android Marshmallow. This latest update will bump the Note Edge software version up to MMB29M.N915VVRU2CPD1 build number. Aside from this, it will also incorporate the standard Android 6.0 Marshmallow features, along with a few additional features from the mobile carrier itself. This will include enhancements such as Android for Work, a new app icon, a new folder design, Wi-Fi calling and an Ultra-High-Quality Audio mode. The newly integrated Ultra-High-Quality Audio speaker enhancements will improve any file's sound quality, boosting it to a quality that is closer to an Audiophile level. In addition, Verizon has now forgone the pre-installation of Amazon Music, which means less bloatware. Since this is a major update, you'll need to make sure that your phone battery has enough charge, and that you are on a stable Wi-Fi connection. As with all updates, you might have to wait a few days or weeks before it is made available to your handset. However, once the update notification hits your device, tap the Install Now option to initiate the installation. When the process is over, your Note Edge device will reboot automatically. To check if the update is already available on your device, head into Settings >> About phone >> Software updates and then select Check for updates. If there is an actual software update press the Download now prompt. When it has finished downloading, hit Install update.
