AT&T rolls out Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge
US carrier AT&T has rolled out a country-wide OS update to users of Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge Android machines. The OTA update weighs 660 megabytes and comes with lots of newly added features as well as improvements and bug fixes on the existing ones.
Notably, the update brings Samsung Pay to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge as the brand new payment service is nearing kick off in the United States where it will compete with the likes of Apple Pay and Google-owned Android Pay.
After the update, the smartphones will also get new animation effects as well as an improved task manager and slightly redesigned, smoother user interface. Samsung says that Android 5.1.1 brings about improved battery management in the smartphones but the Korean company is yet to issue an official changelog concerning the update.
If you are using an AT&T-purchased Galaxy S6/S6 edge and yet to receive the update, you may need to prompt the update manually. On your device, head over to Settings > About device > Software Update and select Check For Updates. The rest of the process is self explanatory once the update pops up.
(Unofficial) Samsung Galaxy S6 Changelog for Android 5.1.1 Lollipop:
- Alphabetical sorting within the apps menu is now possible
- Alarm clock shows the remaining time until wake up
- S Finder and Quick Connect can be removed from status bar
