So, you are rocking to the current generation flagship smartphone from LG in the form of the LG G4, and have been wondering just when will your mobile carrier of choice, T-Mobile, release the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the handset? All of the waiting will finally come to an end, as it has been revealed that the Over The Air (OTA) update has been released. You will need to check periodically, as OTA rollouts tend to happen in stages, so not everyone will receive them at once.

After all, it is only a matter of time prior to the OTA rolling out, especially after the update has arrived at the LG Bridge PC software earlier this week, as confirmed by several user reports over on Reddit. It certainly did not take too much waiting time for the Over The Air update to arrive, which is a good thing as users can be rather impatient where having the latest and greatest software versions on their current smartphones are concerned.

Right now, this particular build will carry the version number H801120i, which will bring along with it a fair number of enhancements and improvements. You would do well to make sure your LG G4 has adequate storage space and battery life left before proceeding with the downloading and installation of this update though, as it weighs in at 963.7MB Of course, in order to not consume your monthly data allowance, it would be best to perform the OTA update for your LG G4 via a stable Wi-Fi connection, otherwise it would be a waste of good bandwidth from your data plan when you could have used that amount of data transferred to say, download a movie of your choice before that long haul flight?.

With the installation of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, one of the improvements in which we can find would be the battery-saving feature known as Doze, among others. For those who would prefer to perform manual checks after waiting in vain for a notification, do the usual by selecting "Settings", and going through the following sequence of choices: About Phone --> Update Center --> System Updates --> Check for Update.

Do take note that T-Mobile is rather late to the game here, especially since the likes of Sprint have already introduced the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the LG G4 in 2015. Perhaps it is a case of better late than never here, and as long as the update is stable, I guess customers would be more than happy.

As a word of caution before applying any kind of software update, one should always perform a backup of all your data and contacts on the handset, as you can never quite tell as to when Murphy and his law might just strike. Do so, and then only proceed with the OTA update. So far, everything seems to be rather stable as there has been no word on the ground that folks who have proceeded with the update experienced any kind of crashes or bugs.
