Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge get new Nougat beta update
posted by Damian M. / Dec 20, 2016, 4:04 AM
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.

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.

"Beta 4 was full of bugs" Well it is called BETA for a reason.
