Telstra and Vodafone have been quite ahead of the game for a couple of years now when updating their customers about software updates. Vodafone has a weekly software update post on their Vodafone blog, and Telstra semi-regularly updates their Crowd Support forum with updates and then community managers respond to comments. Optus however has been seriously lax when it comes to communication, but that seems to have changed with the launch of the ‘My Optus Blog’.
Launched in mid-June, the My Optus Blog is a place for all the Optus announcements like when they announced the LG G4 was coming to Optus, and when they announced winners for a competition…that didn’t launch on the blog. But the good news is that they have begun regular ‘Android Software Update’ posts to let you know what updates are in testing and which are available.
The latest update shows that Optus (unlike Vodafone and Telstra) are actually testing the Android 5.1.1 update for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Other than that, this weeks update is pretty dry. We’ll be checking in with this site regularly to let you know what’s happening.
