Even though the  Android N Developer Preview was released yesterday, Marshmallow is only on 2% of devices. The number should only increase as more OEMs release updates to last year’s flagship devices and starting today, Sprint is updating its Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge variants to Android 6.0.

Sprint has yet to update the release notes for the Galaxy S6, but it should be software version G920PVPU3CPB6, while the S6 Edge will be at G925PVPU3CPB6. Users can check to see if the update is available for them by going into Settings > System update > Update now.

In addition to Now on Tap, Doze mode, and an updated permissions model, Samsung devices will get a better browsing and multitasking experience. The edge display also gains more functionality and as part of Android 6.0.1, users will see a ton of new and updated emoji.

The Sprint Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are only the second Samsung devices to get Marshmallow from U.S. carriers. Verizon was surprisingly the first with the Note 5 getting updated last week.
