If you're a Verizon user and all you've ever wanted for this year is to get to experience Google's purest Android platform in your Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, then your wait is finally over. The U.S. carrier has officially revealed that it is about to roll out Android Nougat to these smartphones.
Android Community reports that Verizon announced that it is starting to roll out the major Google update on its Android platform to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge owners. The carrier's decision came just two months after the OEM shipped off Android Nougat to the U.S. this January. Meanwhile, its decision also lets the carrier join its competition Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile that have already pushed the Nougat update to their users who own these flagship iterations, as per Android Authority.
According to the same publication, the pushing of Android Nougat platform to Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S& and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge users would offer them a voluminous amount of add-on and special features. These include the improved multi-window support that would allow users to run two apps side by side, the new battery management feature, the "Always On Display" other customization options, the updated keyboard and the improved language predictions. The carrier has also noted that it has ditched the go90 app, an app that is similar to Netflix. This app allows subscribers to stream free original shows, live sports and a lot more.
Verizon will reportedly send out "Over The Air" announcements to its Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge users by the time the Android Nougat already gets its green light to roll out. Users can also check it on their settings manually if the update is already there. Users will have to ensure as well that they are connected to a Wi-Fi network and their devices should be carrying a battery percentage of 50% or more.
