LG has reportedly released the Android Marshmallow update to the company's flagship G4 (T-Mobile) variant in the USA.

Some T-Mobile LG G4 (H811) owners on social media platform Reddit have confirmed that they received the Android 6.0 update notification. The firmware is now available via OTA (Over-The-Air) and also through LG Bridge (PC Suite) for people who want to install the firmware on their device manually.

Manual installation requires some technical knowledge. So we urge users to install the update through OTA, by following this simple procedure shown below.

Go to Settings >> About Phone >> System updates> check for updates

If you get the update notification, opt "download now" and once the downloading is finished, select "install now" option. It will take a few minutes for the device to complete the installation and re-boot.

[Note: Make sure to use Wi-Fi for downloading update for uninterrupted installation experience]

Since the OTA process is staged in phases, it will take few days to reach all corners of the country.

If users are technically sound, then they upgrade their LG G4 to the new update by following this procedure (HERE).

The new Android Marshmallow firmware brings Doze power saving feature, new secured verified boot system, new Google photos app, support for more international languages and new contextual assistance feature.
