Verizon has finally started to update Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat Version. Verizon was the only US carrier left among the four major ones to bring on the update. Samsung pushed the latest version to Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in the mid of January this year.
According to Android Police, the official update to Android 7.0 Nougat follows Galaxy Beta Program which allowed selected customers to test Nougat on Samsung phones. Initially, Verizon partnered this program but then withdrew their interest and dropped out after a month and gave customers an option to either continue with Beta one or to set back again to the current version of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Verizon's update followed the same route that Samsung and other carriers like AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile did. As mentioned in phone Arena, this update brings a complete visual overhaul by changing Samsung interface that came along with the previous Android version to a more pleasing and streamlined 'Grace UI' Interface. Excluding the refinements brought in UI, an additional feature like multi-window and bundled notifications has also been introduced. Verizon also states that with the update of Android 7.0 Nougat in Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, the performance of Samsung has improved. The cool features like excellent battery management tool to optimize battery life, the cleaner new camera interface, more Always-On display customization options and updated keyboard are all been listed wonderfully.
9to5 Google states that Verizon has also removed its go90 app in this update which was less used by users. If you have a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge on Verizon Wireless you can directly opt for system updates by heading onto your Settings option in your phone. The latest Android 7.0 Nougat version happens to be more happening and more user-interactive. Get yourselves updated soon.
