A quick heads up for our LG G4 owning friends in Canada that a Marshmallow flavored update looks to be pushing out now. Reported by GSM Arena, Rogers and Telus customers are starting to see an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow arriving on their devices. Currently no information on when Bell will start rolling out the update, but we guess Bell won’t be too far behind it.
You can check for yourselves whether or not your G4 is ready by heading into Settings>About Phone>Software Update or by jumping into the Update Center app in your app drawer if you have it. Marshmallow for the G4 adds a number of improvements. Enjoy!
