Ok, so, where's the update for everyone else? Just got word on HTC's Twitter feed that there's been another "setback" in releasing the Marshmallow/Sense 7 update for the M8, and the Marshmallow update for the M9. That's twice this update's been delayed, for no other reason than the "slight delay" line given by HTC. Granted, that response is much more informative than the robo-response everyone from ATT has given when asked, which reveals absolutely nothing. The update from KitKat to Lollipop for the M8 didn't even have this much trouble, or take this long.

Thanks for this. Early this morning I thought I would just check and lo and behold there was the update.
It took about an hour to download and install but it really has made the phone look nice and new and a whole lot more responsive.
It's only been a couple of hours but plan on spending some time today poking around a bit.
Android Version 6.0
Build number MRA58K
Software Version D85030k

Effective April 27th, 2016, an AT&T approved Android Marshmallow update is availible for LG's G3 (D850).
posting this was in bad taste if you ask me. SINCE NOT ONE SAMSUNG DEVICE HAS BEEN UPDATED!. Att takes time to update a phone that is 2 years old before newer samsung phones. Heck the ATT was so sloppy they didnt even update the g3 to 5.1.1 and thats the reason the phone got the boot out of my house.

How the heck does the LG G3 , a lot older phone get the update before my Galaxy S6? That is some serious Bull right there. ATT and Samsung get your stuff together.

Wow! I wonder what would have happened if I had asked you!
All kidding aside (and to respond to @lcalle & @Nickybeanpie as well) , I feel your frustrations. I've been with Android since the beginning and waiting for an update isn't a very pleasant experience (atleast it's not to me personally).
@lcalle, I'm absolutely guilty of providing generic responses about Marshmallow updates when I'm responding under the @ATTMobilityCare handle. The reality is, with the amount of testing and compliance we have to do per device to make sure every device update goes smoothly, we can't provide a timeline or speculate when something is going to pass muster.
Here's what I can say; my team and I are working with our internal partners to share the communities feedback. That's the cool part of everyone here talking about this; it helps drive the conversation within our company. And, at the end of the day, we're here to delight our customers, not disappoint them.
I know this isn't going to answer every question out there about device updates, but I'm hoping that this post illistrates that we're listening, and we're working hard to meet the needs of all of our customers. You're still going to see us post the generic response from time to time (there's only so many ways you can say "keep watching for updates" ); just know that as soon as we can provide device specific updates & timelines, we will definitly keep everyone in the community informed.

All I noticed is that several APP symbols changed, like the clock and calendar. Why do developers think that is important? Then I noticed that some widgets I had are just gone. I imagine they are not configured or supported by the new OS which sucks since I used them.
And what business is it of ATT or Android to change my home page for Chrome to ATT/Yahoo or whatever it is? Yahoo is a worthless search engine.
I really don't see the point of these updates although I do think it is a way for companies to force customers to upgrade devices that will run slow with the new software or become obsolete. This has happened several times with Apple and why I no longer use any of their products or software!

I also noticed the home page icon which defaulted to yahoo.
I changed it to google.com but then disabled it altogether to reduce clutter on the address bar.
Many of the icons have changed and I like the change.
None of the widgets I had installed are missing.
While there may be a few niggles and unexpected changes, overall I am pleased with the increased zip that this update has brought to my G3.

Now that it is out, how does AT&T determine the order who will get it first. Should I just wait for a notification or check for software update every 24 hours?
