Sprint, the fourth largest carrier over here in the United States is pushing out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to their users who own the LG G4. Android 6.0 has hit other G4 handsets in other countries, but Sprint’s version will be the first in the U.S. for carriers that isn’t a Nexus device.
Sprint doesn’t have a changelog on their support page for the G4, but the latest software version it’ll be running is LS991ZV9. So far what we know about this update is that it brings Sprint’s global roaming feature. For those not familiar with Sprint’s global roaming feature, it provides you with free unlimited data and text for supported countries. Talk is $0.20 per minute, but data is up to 2G speeds. If you want to dish out money for 3G speeds, that’s up to you.
Though no changelog is present, we know that this update will bring everything over from Android 6.0 including Doze, Google Now on Tap, and App permissions, but on the LG side the update should include Allow Peeking, which enables users to see notifications on the top of the screen, Do Not Disturb, updated and more secure Knock Code, Silent Mode has been added to the sound profile, and Capture+ (used to be QMemo+), which takes a screenshot of the screen you’re on and allows you to edit it.
If you haven’t received the update yet on your G4 and are on Sprint’s network, no need to worry because this update is going out in stages and can take a bit of time to be delivered. Just have a little bit of patience and you’ll get the update. For those who do have Android Marshmallow on your G4, how’s the update treating you?
