It’s February, which is ever so much closer to longer days, warmer evenings, and… software updates?
According to Rogers and Telus (the only two of the Big Three to maintain a software update schedule. Come on, Bell), the LG G4 will reportedly receive its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update today on Telus, followed by Rogers on Wednesday, February 3rd.
In 2015, LG committed to improving its smartphone update track record, including those of older devices. Indeed, while it seemingly took forever for its 2013 flagship, the G2, to receive its KitKat update (on which it has stayed ever since), LG promised multiple upgrades for its 2014 and 2015 products, the G3 and G4, respectively.
The G4 is first up to get Marshmallow, which brings Google Now On Tap, improved standby battery performance with Doze, and a number of other improvements, but the G3, according to Rogers and Telus, should receive Android 6.0 in the middle of March.
If your G4 has received Android 6.0 Marshmallow, let us know in the comments below.
Update: Bell LG G4 users have started to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.
Update #2: We’re hearing from customers on all carriers that sold the phone, including Virgin Mobile, Wind Mobile and others, that the Android 6.0 update is now available. Have at it!
