Has the softening of consonants before some vowels always been present in Lithuanian or is it a slavic influence on the language?

I've heard it is a slavic influence on Lithuanian, because Latvian only have a number of palatalized consonants. But the influence has been present for a long time, I guess starting some time after the split of Lithuanian-Latvian in the 6th century.

I'm not certain though, cause I remember reading about this vaguely something like 5 years ago.
