Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users are the first from the company to receive the latest Android Nougat update on their devices.
There had been talk of the company working on the Nougat update for weeks now and finally, the rumors have materialized. However, don’t get your hopes too high since this Android Nougat update is still in beta and as such, current users of Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will have to sign up for the company’s beta program.
Like other beta programs, the new Samsung Galaxy Beta Program is an attempt by the company to give Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users an early look into the new Android Nougat OS. This doesn’t mean that other devices won’t be part of the beta testing program, at least for now.
So, how do you get this new Android Nougat OS installed on your Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge? It’s quite simple!
For starters, visit the official Samsung Galaxy Apps Store and download the Galaxy Beta Program app. Install this application on your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge and when done, launch it. Go ahead and tap “Start.” Hit the menu button that is located in the top-right corner and proceed by tapping on Registration.
To complete the registration process, check the box against the “I Agree” option and proceed by tapping the “Agree” button at the bottom. Your account must first be selected to be part of the update, something that could take some time. However, you will be notified once the update is ready for downloading and installing on your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge handset.
Whether or not other Samsung devices will be joining this Galaxy Beta Program is still unknown, but in case it happens, the likes of Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and Galaxy Note 5 could be the first to be considered. Keep following us and we’ll update you on the latest details.
As for now, this update is only available for those using the 2016 flagships.
