Verizon pushes out an update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is receiving a massive 2GB update from Verizon, that oddly enough only lists a few new features. Originally this update was made available through Samsung's desktop software, Kies, it now Verizon is pushing it out over-the-air. Clocking in at 2GB in size, one would expect a number of new changes, or a bump up to the latest version of Android. Unfortunately, that is not the case here, as Verizon has only listed a few small additions.

  • Fingerprint for EAS Authentication - adds fingerprint as a device security lock option while an Exchange Active Sync (EAS) account is active on the device.
  • Add Milk Music as preload on home screen.
  • Galaxy Apps Auto Install - triggers Galaxy Apps to install when user signs into Samsung Account for the first time.

The update is rolling out now, and you will want to be sure to be connected to Wi-Fi with your phone plugged in. To check manually, head into your phones Settings, then About Phone and check for update. If you have already received the update, be sure to let us know how it is treating you, and any other changes you may notice besides what Verizon listed.
