LG, just like other OEMs, is continually working on delivering the Android 6.0 Marshmallow to a range of its devices. According to new reports, the LG G3 unit is now in line to receive the said update.


According to reports, LG G3 users under T-Mobile are now in line to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Since other major carriers have released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow firmware to LG units, it appears that T-Mobile is now ready to follow suit. Just like other devices updated to the firmware, several treats like Doze, Google Now on Tap, enhanced permission controls and other improvements are included in the upgrade.

T-Mobile does not offer much beyond that on its changelog. People can expect Wi-Fi calling improvements among other things. As with other Android updates, people can access the update via the over-the-air release. Users just need to wait for the installation prompt to proceed with the upgrade. The update is available starting May 2 via the software version D85130d.

According to T-Mobile, it is also important for users to check if their units are running on the current version. As with other updates previously, units need to run on a specific version so they can be upgraded. To check for the software version, choose Apps from the home screen. Select Settings then if the user is viewing through Tab View, choose Menu > List View. Scroll down to SYSTEM then check About Phone. Choose Software information and check the version.

Most of the time, LG official rollouts are released via a prompt. However, for those who have received the prompt, they may need to check manually through Settings and About Phone menu also. All users are advised to connect to a reliable Wi-Fi connection or cellular connection to avoid any problems.
