Android Marshmallow comes with a redesigned software front, updated version of Samsung’s internet browser, better permission controls, Google Now on Tap, Doze, and built-in apps will be getting cross app functionality. Samsung made sure to test the beta version of the update before rolling it out on its devices so that it wont face much bugs as they did for the case of Note 5’s Marshmallow update.

As mentioned earlier, Marshmallow is bringing many changes to the interface. Apart from changes in few app’s icons, the status bar and quick toggles menus are now fully white instead of blue while the power menu has been redesigned. Moreover, themes can now be downloaded on your device based on their color palettes.

If you are not eager to get the update at its earliest, you can wait for the official notification to pop up in your device. Alternatively, you can always go to Settings » About device » Software updates menu to rush things up. For firmware details, refer below:
