Samsung has officially made available to download Android 7.0 Nougat beta for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices. Here’s what you require installing it on your device.
It seems Samsung after killing the Galaxy Note 7 a bit more focusing on software development process, as many had not expected the Galaxy S7 to receive an Android 7 Nougat update for quite some time now, Samsung has stepped towards into a position to allow public beta testers to kick the tires on the software.
Based on the version of GraceUX, which was found on the Galaxy Note 7, so if you’re familiar with that software, then the Nougat build of the same that is on the way to the Galaxy S7 should distinctively familiar, and that’s a good thing. If you want to download and install that experience on your S7 sooner rather than later, you can sign up to beta-test it via Samsung. As always, pre-release builds have caveats, though.
Predominantly, you’ll need to be in the correct country – the US, UK or South Korea initially with Samsung confirming that China will be joining the party very soon. If you live in UK, then you will need to be carrying the unlocked version of the handset, and those in the US can get it by through a carrier locked device.
This beta applies to both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, but those own an Olympic Games Limited Edition device are out of luck; as your phone is not supported at this time.
First and foremost! Getting in on the Nougat beta requires downloading the Galaxy Beta Program app from the Galaxy Apps store (Not Google’s Play Store) and signing up. New registrations in the United Kingdom at least now appear to be closed, so your grace may vary here. If you do get through the signup process, then you should receive an OTA update, which nevertheless brings the Nougat and GraceUX treatment, though some have yet to receive the update even after being accepted. We suspect a staged rollout is at play.
Not ready to give it a try, just remember that it’s a beta software and is liable to have the odd bugs or two. If you really don’t want to jump in just yet, signs are that the official release of Nougat for galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge coming in December. No more wait long now!
