T-Mobile partnering with OEMs to bring Marshmallow to 17 devices


Once a new version of Android is released, we typically seeĀ announcements from device manufacturers which lay out which of their devices will be updated. But we rarely, if ever, see the same sort of news coming from a service provider. T-Mobile is changing that expectation by launching an Android Marshmallow software update page on its site, listing 17 different T-Mobile devices which will be updated to Android 6.0. On top of that, T-Mobile will also be tracking the Marshmallow update process for each phone with three different stages to the process:

  1. Manufacturer Development: T-Mobile and the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update.
  2. T-Mobile Testing: During this stage the device will go through T-Mobile certification process testing to make sure you get the best quality software possible.
  3. Complete: The software has been approved to launch and is now available.

The list will likely grow as more OEMs announce their Android Marshmallow update plans, but it’s certainly exciting to see T-Mobile make such a public commitment on an Android software update. Hopefully, Sprint, AT&T and Verizon will follow in T-Mobile’s footsteps and offer transparency into the software update process for the devices that they sell.
