Verizon's Galaxy Tab E 8.0 picks up the Marshmallow update

Verizon has started rolling out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to the Galaxy Tab E 8.0. The update increments the firmware version to T377VVRU1BPD6, bringing the latest security patch to the tablet.

Here's what's new, per the changelog:

  • Now on Tap anticipates what you need in the moment. With a simple tap, you can get cards with useful information and apps that feed your need to know.
  • When your device is at rest, Doze automatically puts it into a sleep state, preserving your battery charge.
  • No need to give apps access all the time. Android Marshmallow lets you define what you want to share and when. Turn permissions off at any time, too.

The release notes also mention the deletion of Amazon Music, VZ Navigator, and go90 apps. If you're using the tablet, head into settings to start downloading the update.

Not on Verizon? The Galaxy Tab E 8.0 is also available from T-Mobile{.nofollow}.
