Verizon sends out Wi-Fi fix for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
Verizon has announced that it is sending out an update for both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. According to the nation's largest carrier, the OTA update fixes an issue with Wi-Fi connectivity that seems to be related to Android 6.0. Both models come out of the box with the Marshmallow build of Android pre-installed.

Verizon says that the problems include connecting to the internet using Wi-Fi, frequent data disconnections, and problems while loading files or web pages. But software versions MMB29M.G930VVRU2APB5 (Galaxy S7) and Software Version: MMB29M.G935VVRU2APB5 (Galaxy S7 edge) are coming to the rescue.

When you receive notification of the update, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi signal and that your battery is at least 50% charged before downloading and installing it. Verizon also warns you to expect additional time for your apps to download after the update is installed. This annoying time-wasting issue will reportedly be eliminated in Android N.
