Marshmallow update starts hitting Galaxy A8

As expected, Samsung has started rolling out the Marshmallow update to its Galaxy A8smartphone. The update brings Android version 6.0.1 and is currently rolling out to units in India.

Weighing in at around 1,112MB, the update includes all the usual Marshmallow goodies such as Doze, Google Now on Tap, and redesigned app permissions, as well as some other changes including those related to fingerprints.

As is usually the case with OTA roll outs, it might take some time before the update notification pops up on your device. Meanwhile, if you feel impatient, you can manually check for the update by heading to your device’s Settings menu.
