T-Mobile Galaxy S5 receiving its Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update

A couple of months ago, Samsung started rolling out an official Android Marshmallow update for the international version of the Galaxy S5 – the company’s flagship smartphone of 2014. Not long after that, Sprint updated its variants of the handset, and, now, T-Mobile is also bringing Marshmallow to its Galaxy S5.

This update is more than 1GB in size, so if you’ve got a T-Mobile GS5, you may want to track down a speedy Wi-Fi connection before starting the download. To update, you can wait for Android 6.0.1 to be pushed to your phone over the air, or you can update manually. To update manually, go into Settings > About device > Software update, or load up Samsung Smart Switch on your PC.

We’ve known that the Galaxy S5’s Android 6.0 update was in the works for a while now, but it’s still nice to see the rollout begin. The GS5 is more than two years old at this point, but it’s now getting the latest version of Android and some new features, giving it a new lease on life.

If you’ve got a Galaxy S5, let us know when Marshmallow makes its way to you!
