Samsung has now started rolling out the Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) update to the first-generation Galaxy A5 (SM-A500FU) smartphone in several markets across Europe and South Africa.
The update is available through over-the-air (OTA) and it brings all the default Marshmallow goodies, such as Google Now on Tap which adds a contextual flavor to users search results, more advanced app permissions, Doze battery sever mode and much more. In addition it also includes device stability improvements, speed optimizations, several bug fixes, as well as Google’s latest Android security patches.
As we know the firmware updates are rolled out in stages, so it may take a few days before they reach all the devices out there. The update notification should automatically pop up on your device. You can also check it manually by heading to Settings -> About Device -> Software Update. We guess it will be released in other markets (including India) very shortly.
