If you want to install Marshmallow update on your Galaxy Alpha, you already have a way out. Be sure to check the model no. of your Galaxy Alpha first, though, as the ROM provided below works only on the given model no. and may damage devices with different model no.
With Android 6.0, you will get the famous Doze mode that is said to increase the battery life significantly. Android 6.0 also introduced awesome app control to hep you determine which apps were eating your device’s battery.
That apart, on Galaxy Alpha Marshmallow update with ROM like CM13, you will get vastly improved permissions system, to control which app uses what capability, and you can allow and disallow them too.

If you love updates, we’d say you give Galaxy Alpha CM13 a try, and live the 6.0 game yourself.
You will get to use stock Android UI on CM13, as seen on Nexus devices whose software part is handled by Google itself. This is also one big reason why we love these custom ROMs.
On the Marshmallow update builds provided below, you will also not have to bear with Samsung’s TuchWiz UI, as it’s gone in favor of stck Android UI, which is cool.
