Nexus 6 is finally getting the Android 7.0 Nougat update

Google never gave an official answer as to why the Nougat update for the Nexus 6 or Nexus 9 LTE was delayed, but rumor had it that the issue was with battery drain. Whatever the problem, it looks like Google has sorted it out because users are reporting seeing Android 7.0 hitting Nexus 6 devices, even those not enrolled in the Android Developer Preview program. The update, build number NBD90Z, clocks in at about 860MB in size, so you'd best be sure you have at least a couple gigs of space free before attempting to install the update.
If you're not seeing the OTA rollout hitting your device, Google has posted the official images for you. There's the full stock image, if you want to start clean, or the OTA file if you'd rather that. Still nothing for Nexus 9 LTE users though. Sorry to say.
Let us know if you've been seeing the update!

Dude, with all my wife's complaints about her Nexus 6 on MM I'm hoping Nougat with a factory reset solves her problems....

My Nexus 6 is the best & most problem free of all my Nexus phones (4, 5, 6 and 6P)... The only problem I have suffered with the Nexus 6 caused by one of the monthly updates was battery draining extremely fast, not able to connect or stay connected to the carrier to make phone calls, not able to stay connected to the Wi-Fi (T-Mobile), and other problems. But ALL the problems were corrected by setting the "Location" to "Battery saving mode". It seems all those problems were caused by the phone GPS draining the phone battery and blocking the Wi-Fi and carrier signal...

The time of the year when you regret buying a note 4 instead of the nexus 6.
