Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Note 4 gets Android Marshmallow update

Verizon has announced that Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be rolled out to Samsung Galaxy Note 4. This new development comes just two days after the company revealed a list of 13 devices that had been updated to Marshmallow. The new update is being released under the software version VRU2CPD1 and Android build MMB29M.N910VVRU2CPD1, which denotes that the new release is based on Android 6.0.1 platform. Similar to Samsung Galaxy S5, the Note 4 owners will also be able to experience new features of Android M such as Google Now on Tap, Doze, App icon update, Wi-Fi Calling, TouchWiz skin with new icons, App icon update, Android for Work, enhanced audio and improved application permission controls. However, the latest update has removed Amazon Music and Verizon has not provided any proper reasoning.

Update Process

To update your device, you need to navigate to Settings | About phone | Software updates and select the Check for new updates option. You can also tap on Install now option to start the update process. However, before you download the update, you need to ensure that your Note is connected to a Wi-Fi network. Alternatively, you can also make use of a strong Verizon Wireless network connection. You should also fully charge your battery up to 100 percent because the installation file will be larger before downloading the update. If you are away from your home and under roaming then you will not view any update notifications. You have to manually verify using the above-mentioned step to check for the existence of an update. According to Verizon, the latest Android Marshmallow update to Galaxy Note 4 has been optimized for performance with fixes to known bugs. If you update your device to the latest release, you also got the latest security patches, which are vital for proper and stable functioning of your device.


The Now on Tap feature automatically predicts your requirements. With Doze, your device will be put in a sleep state, even when your device is not doing any work. This will extend the battery life to a great extent. The Android M has been developed to protect your privacy and app permissions. With Wi-Fi calling capability, you will be able to make and receive calls over a Wi-Fi network even if you don’t have access to a cellular network. The latest Android M update enhances the quality of your music files by adding a new dimension to the files with Ultra High-Quality Audio also called as UHQA.
