Sony has started rolling out the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the Xperia Z5 Compact. This follows in the footsteps of the earlier update for the Xperia Z5.
The new software for the smaller Z5 seems to be currently out in Europe only, with reports of people getting it coming in from Finland as well as the UK. Now that it’s finally making its way to devices, the update is bound to reach more and more territories in the near future.
In the UK, you’re looking at a 1.1GB download, with the software version being 32.1.A.1.163 once the update is installed. As you’d expect, the new release packs in all the goodies that Google has included into Marshmallow – things such as the new permissions system, Doze Mode for better standby battery life, and Direct Share. Sony has included a new camera interface, as well as the Xperia Messaging app with new stickers. Obviously, we expect some bug fixes to be in too.
