Galaxy S6

Samsung has commenced rollout of the Marshmallow update to the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. The update is now live in South Korea, and will be available in other regions shortly.

The update brings Doze, Now on Tap, simplified app permissions, and much more, and if you're using the Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung is adding more functionality to the edge screen. First off, you'll be able to increase the panel width of the edge screen to 550 pixels (up from 260 pixels), allowing you to view more content. You can also customize up to nine quick access panels, with the People edge panel now displaying names below a contact's photo.

Apps edge — which gives you quick access to your frequently used apps — now lets you add ten apps, as well as the ability to add folders. The Tasks edge has also been updated with Quick tools, which includes a ruler, compass and customizable flashlight. Access to the edge panel has also been simplified, with the update bringing the ability to customize the place, size and transparency of the edge handle.

Finally, Samsung is collaborating with Yahoo to deliver the latest stock prices, sports news and headlines directly to the edge screen.

We'll share additional details on the update as it starts becoming available in other regions.
