[Update: 6.0.1 Now Rolling Out] I'm On AT&T (Or Cricket / Straight Talk) And My Nexus 6 Isn't Getting Android 6.0 Or Other OTA Updates

Recently, we've had a spate of people emailing and contacting us via social media with complaints that their Nexus 6 on AT&T has not yet received an over-the-air update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This is very annoying. Likely, even if you do wait long enough and get Android 6.0, you'll have the same problem with getting Android 6.0.1, or any subsequent update, too. In fact, this has been true of literally every OTA update for Nexus 6 devices on AT&T: they take abnormally long to receive them, AT&T branded or unlocked, versus other carriers in the US.

There are many over-the-air updates out there, but right now, there's only one type that Android lovers are looking for, and that's Marshmallow. If I don't get to walk away with my device running Android 6.0, then I basically just sat around watching an animated arrow for no reason.

US Cellular customers who own an LG G4, you're in for an OTA update, and its one of the good ones. The firmware upgrade currently going out to devices bumps them up to Android 6.0.

[Android 6.0 Feature Spotlight] Home Screen Settings Shortcuts Now Have Individual Icons

It's not often that we find an Android feature worthy of coverage after months in the wild, but Marshmallow truly is the OS that keeps on giving. It looks like there's a notable tweak to those home screen settings shortcuts. Rather than having identical settings icons, they all have their own.

HTC One A9 GSM And Moto E (1st Gen) Get CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies With Android Marshmallow

The HTC One A9 was HTC's first device to ship with Android Marshmallow, but despite a relatively clean version of Sense, there's still reason to want to flash a custom ROM. Maybe you want the genuine stock Android look. Maybe you want to cut down on the number of pre-installed apps. Either way, you now have the option to flash CyanogenMod and keep Android 6.0 thanks to the arrival of CM 13 nightly builds.

Verizon's Galaxy Note 4 Finally, Finally, Finally Gets Android 5.1.1 Update

Verizon really isn't on the ball with its Note 4 updates. When Google released the Android 5.1 source code in March of 2015, the Note 4 was only half a year old and it was still one of the most expensive flagships being sold by the operator. Now sure, Samsung took its sweet time to have Android 5.1 ready for everyone, but by the beginning of August, Sprint had already released it. AT&T followed in October, and T-Mobile at the end of November.

Verizon? Well, as the largest carrier in the US, customers would have assumed that their operator would be burning the midnight oil trying to get the update out to them as soon as possible.

Netflix For Android TV Update Adds Smart Lock Capability - No More Slow Password Typing

Android's Smart Lock is a great way to save a little hassle when users are around familiar locations or connected devices. The default system version of the feature skips the lockscreen when the phone or tablet detects that it's in a safe location, and last year Google did much the same thing for apps, essentially turning Smart Lock into a password manager for supported applications. While Netflix has supported this feature for months on its standard Android app, the latest update to the Android TV version brings it in line.

To see Smart Lock in action, make sure that you already have your Netflix username and password saved in Smart Lock on a phone or tablet - if it's been a while, you may need to log out on your phone, then log back in and enable the Smart Lock feature when it appears.
