Earlier this month, Google detailed Google's newest version of Android -- dubbed Marshmallow -- has finally exceeded one percent market share of all Android devices, some four months after its original release.

In the time since, smartphone makers have begun detailing when they plan to roll out the update.


Google's Nexus devices were the first to get the Android Marshmallow upgrade -- one of the smartphone line's biggest selling points.

The new Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P come with Marshmallow pre-installed, but the update is already available on many of Google's other devices too.

So far the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C, and the whole range of Android One smartphones have received the latest Android update.


Samsung did a pretty good job of getting Android Lollipop on its phones rapidly, but it seems to have slowed things down for the Marshmallow launch.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge are both getting the update to Android Marshmallow now, but it has taken quite a bit of time to get here. Plus you may have to wait longer for your phone to get it, depending on what carrier or mobile network you're with.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 was the first device to receive the Marshmallow update. Those in Hungary have had the update for quite some time, but the latest leaked roadmap suggests the US and UK will have to wait until March or April.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge that were announced at Mobile World Congress will have Android Marshmallow when they go on sale in March.


Both the HTC One M9 and HTC One A9 were supposed to see the Marshmallow update before the end of December. It has begun rolling out to regional carriers around the globe, notably in the UK. If you're in the US and have the HTC One M9 unlocked, you should now have the update.

HTC One M9 owners on Canadian networks Sasktel, Rogers, Wind, and Videotron will be receiving the update very soon. Hopefully that means other networks around the world are also prepping the update for the coming weeks.

HTC has also confirmed that it will be updating the HTC One M8, HTC M9+, HTC One E9, HTC ME, HTC One E8, HTC M8 EYE, HTC Butterfly 3, HTC Desire 826, HTC Desire 820, and HTC Desire 816.

There's no official word on when it's coming to those devices though.


The over the air update for the Sony Xperia Z5 has begun rolling out to those in Turkey and will soon be coming to both the Xperia Z5 Compact and Xperia Z5 Premium.

Android Marshmallow updates for the rest of the world aren't too clear yet. Sony has yet to officially confirm any details and the latest version of the OS on the official website still states it's running Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Sony has also updated us on the others phones that will be getting the Marshmallow update, and the Xperia Z1 will be missing out this time. The full list of updated phones includes the Sony Xperia Z3+, Sony Xperia Z3, Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet, and Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.


LG has been slow in its rollout of Marshmallow to the LG G4. For now, it's only available in Poland, but LG is promising it for all markets soon.

The LG G5 announced at Mobile World Congress will ship with Marshmallow when it's released in the coming months.
