The Google Nexus Android Nougat update is currently rolling out to the likes of Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 as well as the Nexus Player.
The OS is coming in with new features as well as fixes to previous Marshmallow bugs, something that is causing a lot of excitement across the globe. At the same time, the same Google Nexus Android Nougat update is causing havoc in some parts of the world. As a result, we want to take a closer look at the problems caused by the new Google Nexus Android Nougat update.
Getting ready for Android Nougat
As the push for the release of Android Nougat takes charge, a lot is also coming to light – that the update has a bunch of issues and problems that are yet to be addressed. So, with this in mind, it is important that you make enough preparations before you make the jump to Android Nougat.
It’s not easy to tell what will happen once your Google Nexus 6P or Nexus 9 is running on the new Android Nougat OS. Some Nexus 6P users have reported of battery drains and unstable wireless connections. Recently, Nexus 5X users came in with complaints about frequent reboots after the update, but Google has moved in swiftly to put the blame on LG, the maker of the phone. Now, what this means is that anything is possible following the update, so, make sure you are ready.
In getting ready, make sure you have a backup of your phone, just in case anything goes wrong.
Android Nougat is not yet stable
As noted above, the only explanation behind the issues with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, excessive battery drains and so on is that Android Nougat is not yet stable. You might come across issues where apps are not stable and there is also talk of issues with side-loading apps on the OS. Some Nexus users have also complained of issues with performance and notifications, among others.
All these will be taken care of with time as Google rolls out small updates, both from the client and server ends. So, why the hurry? Android Nougat is here to stay, you can still chill out for a few weeks or months and then get the most stable version by then.
Still, there are no widespread problems with Google Nexus Android Nougat updates, but since the OTA updates have just begun, we expect to hear more in the next few weeks.
Get familiar with Android Nougat feedback platforms
Android Nougat is past the release stage as a number of devices are already using the OS. For the ones who have installed it already, keeping tabs on the performance will remain paramount. In case of any problems, you should have somewhere you can seek answers or rather share your problems. You can also seek for some opinions regarding the new OS.
This is where feedback platforms come into play, with the leaders being the likes of XDA Developers Forum, Google Nexus Help Forums, Reddit as well as Twitter and Facebook, among others. These platforms will provide you with the best feedback on Android Nougat, regardless of the situation.
