LG has been one of the fastest smartphone manufacturers to roll out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, and although this means it may be the last update to Android 6.0.1, that’s still good news. Today, more US carriers are rolling out the latest LG G4 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, and below are the full details.
Google released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow software update on October 5, and the first non-Nexus device to receive the update was the LG G4 just three weeks later. Since then, those in the US outside of Sprint have been waiting for its arrival, and it’s heading for more people in the United States today.
The first LG G4 Android 6.0 update in the state was at Sprint, which surprisingly came back in mid-December. However, no other carrier has released an update to date, and more are coming soon. Here’s what we know.

However, Sprint has confirmed the update and some changes, thanks to the release of an update. small changelog with what to expect. There are tons of changes to Android 6.0 that owners will want to know about before and after the update arrives.
Earlier this morning US Cellular approved The LG G4 will be launching the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update today and we’ve had several reports that users have already received it, one of which stated that the over-the-air update notification went live on January 11 last night. Initial rumors suggested that most US carriers would cancel before January 10, but that didn’t happen.
US Cellular usually receives updates at the same time as Verizon Wireless; this could be a sign that the Verizon LG G4 is next in line, but without any announcements or confirmations it’s hard to predict. That said, we expect AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile to roll out LG G4 updates before the end of the month.
The image above is from US Cellular and the LG G4 confirms Android 6.0 update. It also mentions the latest security patches that should be January, not December, along with some other minor changes. US Cellular has removed the MobiTV and Mobile Security apps that should give owners more space, but that’s only a small part of the innovations.

While Android 6.0 Marshmallow may not look very different at first glance, a lot has changed.

Other carriers will roll out the update in the near future, and we’ll confirm as more details become available.
