Android 6.0 Marshmallow rolling out to Verizon’s LG G Pad X8.3



Although we are just two weeks away from Google I/O 2016 and the official introduction of Android N, there have been more than just a few devices that are just now getting the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The latest device to be updated to Marshmallow is Verizon’s LG G Pad X8.3 tablet.

The update is being pushed out now and will come to your device via an OTA update. Before updating, Verizon wants everyone to follow these steps:

  • Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network, or make sure it has a strong Verizon Wireless network connection.
  • Ensure your battery is fully charged before starting the software update.

As for what features will be coming to your G Pad X8.3, Verizon has listed them with a brief description of each major feature:

  • Now On Tap – Instantly pull up relevant information cards.
  • Runtime Permissions – A new feature used to further help protect your privacy.
  • Silent Mode – The Sound profile can now mute the phone in Silent Mode.
  • Do Not Disturb – The new Do not disturb feature also allows multiple automatic rules by time or event.
  • Direct Share – You can now share directly to a contact or conversation within supported apps.
  • Text Edit Options – Select any word or phrase and you’ll be given multiple editing options.
  • Screenshot Deleting – Delete unwanted screenshots without having to go to gallery.
  • Google Settings – Google apps and services can now be managed in Settings > Google
  • Available Storage Display – Go to Settings > Storage & USB to see internal storage and USB storage when applicable.
  • Controlling Notifications/Allow Peeking – You can now control which apps display Notifications on the current screen.

To verify that you’re device will be running Android Marshmallow, the build number is VK81522A, so if you receive an update and the build numbers don’t match up, you’ll have to hang tight for a little while longer.
