LG has started rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Sprint LG G4 handsets in the US. Owners of the LG G4 phone can now have easy access to the new range of features of the Android OS, such as DOZE, a new feature that leads to a 30 percent improvement in the battery life of the smartphone.

Google released the first new Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in October for its non-Nexus device, the LG G4. While customers in Poland and Korea have already started receiving the update, the US carriers are now preparing to roll out the update, reports GottabeMobile.

LG G4 users on Sprint, recently confirmed they’ve started receiving the Marshmallow update. Sprint also confirmed the details in a small changelog, where it mentioned about the various software updates and their release dates, including the Android 6.0 update.

The LG G4 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update has already arrived in Europe and Asia, and it will now be available in the United States. The update will be sent out via OTA (over-the-air) mode, which means users can have access to the update wirelessly. They can manually check if the update is available by going to Settings-About Phone-Software update, where they can see if the update is showing, reports Android Pit.

The new update welcomes a host of features. Now on Tap is the latest Android 6.0 killer feature that lets you know the exact time when you should leave office in order to beat traffic to reach a destination, such as a meeting venue, reports The Verge.

Doze is another most significant feature of the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. It puts your phone to sleep when it is idle, so that your device saves on battery power. You do not need to apply any settings to activate Doze on your phone, notes Android Central.

The update, however, doesn’t involve much visual changes, but users will definitely enjoy lots of new features once the update is complete.
