Samsung has launched a beta test program of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge users on KT and LG U+ networks in South Korea. The beta test starts from today and runs through January 18.
Samsung is looking to improve the experience of using its software in real-life and is also accepting feedback on the usability and software quality.
Samsung does not plan on expanding this beta program to other parts of the world as confirmed by Samsung Netherlands to SamMobile.
Interested Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge users in South Korea can become a part of the beta test program through the Galaxy Care app that can be downloaded from the Galaxy App Store.
This will be the first time that Samsung has started a beta program for a software update for its devices. If anything, it signifies that Samsung is now putting greater emphasis on the software part of its devices, which is sorely needed.
Since the beta program runs until January 18, don’t expect the Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 to be available before that.[Source Samsung | Via SamMobile]
