MANILA, Philippines – Samsung said Monday, February 15 (Tuesday, February 16, Manila time) that it was finally bringing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system to its Galaxy devices.

Specifically, Samsung said that the first recipients of the Android 6.0 update will be the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s biggest draw will be the integration of contextual searches and Google Now into the overall operating system experience, making it easier for users to fine-tune their phone to their personal information and habits.

The release window will also bring updates that add new functionality to the Galaxy S6 Edge’s edge screens.

While Samsung did say that other Galaxy devices would soon follow with an Android 6.0 update, it remains to be seen whether Android 6.0 will come in a timely manner to other Samsung phone and tablet models.
