Verizon began pushing updates yesterday to both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. The update has the same purpose for both handsets, which will fix Google Play issues, kill off some bloatware, and include a few other nifty features.

If you’ve been having Google Play issues on your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge, consider grabbing this update sooner rather than later. New software versions MMB29K.G920VVRU4CPD2 and MMB29K. G925VVRU4CPD2 will fix the Google Play associated issues and additionally add a memory setting to check-up on how much RAM is being taken up. Verizon is also killing off some bloatware like the Amazon Music app, in addition to allowing users to answer video calls as a regular voice call. This means audio from the video call will be automatically transmitted to your earpiece by default.

Some other minor new features include a ‘send premium SMS’ option available in the application manager settings. Google Search is also now available directly from the settings menu.

You can grab the update containing all these enhancements for your device by going in settings under ‘About Phone’ and ‘software updates.’ You’ll then be able to download and install the update over-the-air.
