Google’s Android Marshmallow update has yet to reach all intended devices but it is slowly making its way with LG G4 and HTC One A9 added to the list. Both devices are in line for the original version of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update and the new version, Android 6.0.1.
HTC has been receiving positive attention for the past periods especially on how it is handling updates. According to GSM Arena, the company is setting a good example in managing software updates including in the HTC One A9. Initially, those with unlocked units were the only ones with access, but now Sprint is following suit.
The carrier revealed that it has released the software version 1.57.651.1 for the HTC One A9. The update also now comes with the 6.0.1 iteration of Android offering improved camera features, better battery life and Wi-Fi calling function.
The same goes for LG G4. LG has started rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the said device in Canada. This is one month after LG started releasing the update in the United States. According to Android Geeks, the program is now being seeded to two major carriers in the region, Telus and Rogers. Telus went ahead already and started the rollout on February 1. Rogers is set to release the update this February 3. Bell should start seeding the Marshmallow update soon as well but the carrier has yet to confirm the matter.
For those who are not patient enough to wait for the OTA notification, the update is also available through the LG Bridge software on the computer. As of the moment, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is live on LG Bridge including for Rogers units. Just like with other Android rollouts, users may have early or delayed access depending on their carrier and region. It is best to check with the networks on the final schedule and features of the firmware.
