Verizon Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge - finally - start receiving Android 7 Nougat update
Last of all four major U.S. carriers, Verizon Wireless has finally started updating the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge to the new Android 7.0 Nougat version. This update brings a welcome visual overhaul, changing the slightly chaotic Samsung interface that came with the initial Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow version on the Galaxy S7, to a more pleasing and more streamlined 'Grace UI' interface.
The Verizon Galaxy S7 Nougat update brings all the cool new features that come with N version of Android: the split-screen multitasking that now works with all apps, the new battery management tool to optimize battery life, the cleaner new camera interface, more Always-On display customization options, updated keyboard and much more. The one particular app that Verizon has removed is the go90 app, which we don't think anybody will miss.
Nougat brings a cleaner new interface, better multitasking and battery life optimizations
The update has already started to roll out, but like all updates this one is rolling out in stages, so if your device is not updated yet, you should give the update a few days, or manually go into Settings > Software Update > Download updates manually, and see if your phone is set to update automatically (it should be), or whether you need to manually kick-start the update.
With Verizon Wireless finally rolling out the Nougat update, it's the unlocked Galaxy S7 version in the United States that is left as the only model that has not received the huge update just yet.
