Lollipop guest

When the Android 5.1 update arrives for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, one Android feature missing since launch will make its debut. According to a report by SamMobile, Guest Mode will be accessible as part of the Lollipop upgrade slated for Samsung’s flagship line.

Guest Mode, an Android feature first introduced by Google for tablets with the Jelly Bean update but arriving on phones with Lollipop, allows a secondary user access to a friend or family member’s smartphone without providing carte blanche over the primary owners installed apps, services, logins, and files. A guest profile exists separately from the main user profile, and the feature will come to the Galaxy S6 with identical functionality.

There is no exact date announced for the rollout of Android 5.1 for the Galaxy S6, but with betas already floating around it should only be a matter of time.
