Galaxy Note 5 users in the US are getting the Marshmallow update through Verizon Samsung

Verizon has started rolling out the Android Marshmallow update to Galaxy Note 5 users in the US who will be the first Samsung consumers to get the latest Android update in the country. The update started rolling out from 4 March and has been labelled software version VRU2BPB2.

The mobile carrier announced the update rollout on their support site and said the Galaxy Note 5 would in fact get Android 6.0.1, build MMB29K, the newest version of Android. Verizon also says the update comes with "the latest security patch." They have not specified any month but since Google's March security update is not yet out it should be the February 2016 security patch.

The latest version of Android will bring an array of features as Now on Tap, Doze mode, app permissions and a changed UI, which Samsung has also contributed to by giving it the customisation it could.

Along with these, Verizon's HD Voice users can make Wi-Fi calls by activating the service by going to Settings > Advanced Calling > Activate Advanced Calling. Once the Advanced Calling is activated one can go back to the main Advanced Calling setting menu and turn on Wi-Fi Calling.

The Marshmallow update for the Note 5 is an over-the-air (OTA) one so you can either wait for it or try your luck by going to Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check for Updates. In case it has not arrived, we suggest you keep checking for it as rollouts like these can go on for weeks.
