We’ve received advice from Telstra this morning that it has approved the Android 6.0 Marshmallow over-the-air (OTA) update for the Nexus 5. Better yet, Telstra has confirmed that Google has started progressively releasing the update to Nexus 5 users on Telstra’s network.
This is in stark contrast to the Lollipop update which took Telstra quite some time to pass through the carrier testing process, resulting in many Nexus users (including those who hadn’t purchased the handsets from Telstra) waiting for quite some time to receive their updates.
It’s good news, and a good step forward. So, if you’re using your Nexus 5 on Telstra, keep an eye out for the software update notification; you should be seeing it really soon now.
