Samsung may have officially launched the Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, but the recent firmware is still nowhere to be found. It should be arriving any moment now on those devices, though, while a plethora of Galaxies are waiting in the queue, too.

The recent update brings the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system plus quite a few TouchWiz goodies. Today Samsung shed some light on the recent TouchWiz features the Galaxy devices will be getting with Marshmallow.

Samsung Internet 4.0 is the recent version of the OEM web browser, and while many people are sticking to Chrome, now there might be more fine reasons to consider using the built-in app.

Internet 4.0 supports a recent feature called Secret Mode - it is protected with your fingerprint and can be easily accessed by using the biometric sensor. It’s an enhanced version of the regular Incognito Mode, and while it won’t store any history, auto-fill data, or cookies, it allows you to save bookmarks. Those are stored in a separate space, encrypted, and protected by your fingerprint courtesy of KNOX security.

The Secure Web Auto Login is also available - it was introduced already with Internet 3.0. If enabled, all pages that are set to auto-login will require your fingerprint authentication to login automatically each time.

The Cross App functionality is also something worth mentioning. With this services Samsung allows you to explore easily content without exiting your current app. For example, if you have a link in a message or an email, you can swipe, and a browser window will pop up displaying the linked web page. Then you just need to swipe again and close the popup.

The Cross App services work with media and links, but it seems you will be able to utilize those features only withing TouchWiz default apps such as the Chart client, Messages, Email, Internet, among others.

The Marshmallow update will also bring better integration of Gear VR, recent power saving modes, Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) protocol, and native app permission control.

These recent features may elaborate why Samsung is taking its time to release those Marshmallow updates. Hopefully, they will be out soon.
