Verizon Wireless has started rolling out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OTA (over-the-air) update to its variant of Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. The update comes after Sprint and a few other carriers seeded the firmware to the devices.

The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update comes with the March security update and takes the firmware version to MMB29K.G920VVRU4CPC2. The update brings improvements to live broadcast and app search, besides features like Now on Tap, Doze and notification panel. 

Samsung has already released the latest firmware to its Galaxy S6, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 edge+ handsets, but it hasn't been prompt enough in bringing OS updates to its other handsets. It's been a while since its rivals like Motorola, LG and HTC started rolling out the firmware update to its flagship devices, and even to budget smartphones.
