If you happen to own the original Galaxy Tab S 10.5 on AT&T then you’re going to be very happy today. The carrier has finally updated the tablet to Marshmallow. AT&T is now rolling out Android 6.0 for the Galaxy Tab S 10.5. It has released the update for this tablet three weeks after Verizon sent it out on its network. The update also brings support for the NumberSync feature to this tablet.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now being rolled out for the first-generation Galaxy Tab S 10.5 on AT&T. Software version MMB29K.T807AUCU1CPI8 comes with the September security patch, it’s not the latest patch that Google has released but at least it’s better than having an outdated security patch.
The carrier has also baked in support for the NumberSync feature. This feature enables users to make and receive voice and video calls on their tablet without having to worry about having their smartphone on them all the time. NumberSync enables them to use their primary number on the tablet completely independent of the smartphone.
As you can imagine, this is a pretty hefty update which comes in at just over 1GB. You’ll certainly require a strong internet connection to download this update. AT&T is yet to confirm when it’s going to release Marshmallow for the 8.4 inch variant of this tablet.
