LG G4 owners in Europe can now get of taste of Android Marshmallow. After a limited release to select users in Poland back in October, the latest version of Android is finally making its way out to the general public. LG has not made an official announcement regarding the availability Android 6.0 for the LG G4, but handset owners in Germany, Portugal, Poland, Spain, Romania, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, the UK, Croatia, and Turkey claim to have downloaded the latest software build for the phone using LG Bridge, LG’s PC-based software management tool. There’s no indication as to when LG will be flipping the switch on its over-the-air update servers, but it shouldn’t be too long.
