If you have the LG G4 smartphone on Sprint then it looks like there’s good news today. Some owners of this phone on Sprint are beginning to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update that seems to have been almost sneaked out without any fanfare. This update, which is rolling out over the air, upgrades the Sprint LG G4’s software to version LS991ZV9.

If you haven’t received a notification yet, you can check for the update by going to “Settings > General > System Updates > Update LG software.” If you have yet to see the update, be patient. The announcement from Sprint states that “Updates may be released in stages. When checking for the update, you may receive a message that no update is available, check back later or wait until the update notification is sent to your device.”

Are you one of those who have already received the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to your LG G4 on Sprint? If so, what do you think of the changes? Maybe you’re wishing your update had arrived and are eagerly waiting? Let us know with your comments.
