Verizon is now rolling out Marshmallow to both the LG G3 and G4

Those of you with either the LG G4 or its predecessor, the LG G3, on Verizon – and who are patiently awaiting the arrival of Android 6.0 Marshmallow – will be relieved to learn that the U.S. carrier has commenced the roll out. You should receive the notification to update your smartphone shortly.

If you haven't yet received the update alert, be sure to give it a number of hours to fully propagate through the system. You can always perform a manual update check by heading into Settings, About phone and check for update.

You can learn more about the updates hitting both smartphones by heading to the respective support pages on Verizon's website (linked below).

  • Wow Verizon, you're not too ****** after all lol. Posted via the Android Central App
  • All that's left is AT&T for the G4
  • Hey now...Sprint needs to get that out to the G3 too!
  • um and the G3 for AT&T....
  • Patiently waiting for the G3 update on ATT. Definitely moving to Nexus with my next phone.
  • I've had the MM 6.0 update on my G4 AT&T for over a will now..... Nice try troll..... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Then I must have missed that info You could have pointed that out without calling me a troll (seriously, I wasn't even TRYING to troll people), but thanks for the heads up. Haven't really caught up much.
  • Wow, LG will definitely be my next phone. Marshmallow on Verizon before Samsung even gets MM to anyone except Korea. That's saying quite a lot!
  • Does Verizon ota updates only get push to user if their on Verizon network? Like if you are using it on T-Mobile would you still get the update? Posted via the Android Central App
  • it has been a few years since i was in a situation like this but it should get pushed to you but you will proabbly be a few days late, one thing you can try is pop the sim out and check for the update.
  • No update available yet. I checked with Verizon. Posted via the Android Central App
  • For G3. No update available for G3 yet.
  • Mmhmm. Yep. Noting here yet either.
  • I called Verizon and they said the rollout will begin at 12:00pm ET.
  • Yep. I checked for the update just after 12 and it was available. Unfortunately, I can't download it on my work wifi.
  • Really Verizon beats Sprint on an update....... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Did you expect anything less? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Verizon better bring marshmallow to the note 4 Posted from the one and only Note 4
  • Christ, they will, Samsung has to release the update first though. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Good luck with that, we received 5.1.1 a month ago on the Note 4, we should see 6.0.1 by the end of the year. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This is really making Samsung look bad. Everybody is getting MM on US carriers and they're just now getting it out to Korea. They need to do better. Unfortunately for me, I really like their phones so I'm just going to be stuck waiting. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Already got it on unlocked G3 in UK. Apart from Google now I haven't really now noticed any difference. Of course someone on here will say I'm wrong, but its just an opinion based on my experience. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I don't have it yet Posted via the Android Central App on my LG G4
  • What about the V10? Newest flagship. Should be before the G3 in my opinion Posted via the Android Central App
  • I agree Posted via the Android Central App
  • G3 is probably the more popular phone though. Every company does it differently, LG seems to be hitting their mainstream phones first.
  • My wife's LG G2 is willing and able!
  • no.... no it's not. Use that phone to slap your face.
  • LG G2 is better than G3 and G4 is a few waya. G2 is awesome phone.
  • The G2 is still an awesome phone, however stuck on 4.4.4 in UK and my G3 has marshmallow. Go figure... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Objectively it is not in all ways that matter. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nice, might have to pop my Sim into my G3 for a few days and see how it is. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This only means that all LG has to concentrate on is the v10 update. Right? RIGHT? SHUT UP I CAN DREAM! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Sold my G3 last week or I'd be happy about the update.
    It was a T-Mo version anyway but I'm sure they'll all get the update too.
    Good support by LG
  • I'm really saddened that the Verizon G3 got marshmallow before the sprint G3. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Downloading now.. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Downloading the 947 MB G4 update now.
  • It's "only" 788.6mb for the G3. Strange...
  • Downloading now for my G4. Really curious to see how I like Marshmallow. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Downloading now.....
  • The good news is that there's not much to report right off the bat. Silent/DND options changed as expected. Some previously disabled apps came back enabled. Wi-Fi calling checkbox is there. Haven't given that a try yet. (As an aside, though, I know VZ and/or LG is just covering themselves, but whom do they really think will change the physical address where they're using Wi-Fi calling each time they move to a new location?) Basically, it updated smoothly. Now need to see if any quirks pop up.
  • Just did the forced software check and it's downloading...
  • Just completed the Verizon G4 upgrade to 6.0. Phone got red hot and used about 25% battery power. After completion, I did a power down and let it cool down. After powering back up, things calmed down considerably. Now the phone is fine and running lightening fast. So far, so good! Word of advise: update all apps prior to the upgrade. Good job, Verizon: within an hour after the news of the OTA update broke, I was downloading! I had to do a manual check but it was there. So happy I switched to LG from Samsung which, as always, is dragging it's heels on the update and is way behind all other major OEM's.
  • How about the Note 5???? Posted via the Android Central App
  • You must confused, this is an article about the G3 and G4. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The keyboard is working much much better! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Now it's time for T-MO to get its head out of its ass! LG G3 still needs updating!
  • As others have said, used about 25% of the battery, took about 25 minutes total including download, having read about the phone getting hot i sat it on my laptop cooler with the fan on high while it was doing the update, it stayed frosty throughout.
    Cant really say i see any speed difference, beyond the "it is new so it should be faster" feeling everyone gets, even though in our heads we know that a new OS = needing more power to run it, thus it actually should be slower on the same hardware. Either way, cant tell a speed difference so far.
    One thing i found that was new is, the phone now has a silent mode on the sound toggle, instead of sound, and vibrate, it now has sound, vibrate, and mute. No issues to report yet, but also have not tried making a phone call, nor have i gotten one.
  • I am not on a direct Verizon contract but use the Verizon network through a reseller. Is there or will there be a downloadable file to used to do a manual update?
  • Marshmallow was exactly what my G3 needed!! Got it yesterday via manual check, right after 11a CST. It has made the phone usable again. My new employer had required me to encrypt my phone to be able to connect to their MS Exchange server, and it ruined performance and battery life. But the Marshmallow update saved the day! It's snappy again, and battery life is much, much better, especially with the Doze Mode. I was thinking about switching to a Nexus 5X, but I'll roll with the rejuvenated G3 until my contract is up around Black Friday this year. Thanks VZW for finally getting us this update!
