Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge get new Nougat beta update

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge get new Nougat beta update
A fourth version of the Android 7.0 Nougat is being pushed out to owners of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge today. The changelog is nothing spectacular, but the removal of Samsung Notes stands out.

Samsung Notes recently got updated with support for Android Nougat, so in case you're running the beta version of Android 7.0 on your Galaxy S7, you can download a compatible app from Google Play or the Galaxy Apps stores. Do keep in mind that you should download the standalone version of the app before you update to the latest beta, unless you want all of your notes to disappear alongside the integrated app.

Another notable change is that the About device section in the settings of the latest beta no longer mentions Samsung Experience. We're not entirely sure what this would mean, though. Our guesses would be that either the new name of Samsung's UI was not meant to appear in previous betas at all, or Samsung decided stick with TouchWiz. We could hear more about Samsung Experience ahead of the official Nougat release for Samsung devices, though.

The update has a size of 280 MB, and it's rolling our to beta participants right now, so keep your eyes open for it, if you signed up for the Nougat beta on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge.

Does anyone know how to turn off the message that appears after restarting? It can get annoying really fast?

A much needed one as well, since Beta 4 was full of bugs in my experience. So far beta 5 seems to be the most stable out of the bunch, and the new animations are fantastic.

It's ok, you just got schooled. No shame in admitting that.

There have been 5 updates so far, but this is beta version 4. Check your beta notices it's tells you.

Looks like you didn't get the point he was trying to make. But not surprising at all considering its you.
