So if you don’t get the notification yet, you may just keep on checking by going into the phone’s Settings>About device>Check for an update. The firmware server refreshes once in every hour, so just continue doing it until it says that the update is available for download.
Also, keep in mind that you cannot get the update if you have rooted or have a modified system running on your Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920P) and the Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925P).   Your device must have to be still run with the official firmware within the system.
