Galaxy S5 owners on AT&T can now finally breathe a sign of relief as their carrier has finally released the much awaited Marshmallow update for this handset. Rival carriers like Verizon sent out the update for said device about three months ago. The country’s second largest carrier has made its customers wait for quite a long time but now that it has rolled out the update, they will just be happy that they are finally getting it.
This just might be the last major Android release that the Galaxy S5 gets. The handset is already two years old and it’s unusual for most Android devices to be supported for major releases after their 24 months are up.
Galaxy S5 users will certainly make the most of this update despite the fact that Marshmallow has already been succeeded now by Android 7.0 Nougat which was released by Google just last week. However, it’s going to take a lot of time before the update is released by third-party OEMs.
The AT&T Galaxy S5 Marshmallow update includes all of the goodies you would expect from Android 6.0, including but not limited to Doze mode, better app permissions, improved notifications experience, Google Now on Tap, and more. Wi-Fi calling and video calling support is present aside from device security enhancements.
