Android Nougat is the latest installment in Google’s line of Android operating systems. It comes with the latest features and improvements and outclasses its predecessors. The official build has been out for a little while now, and getting the Android Nougat update is not difficult at all. It just depends how fast you get based on what kind of device you have. Nexus devices have and always will receive the newest updates first thanks to their pure Android policy, but devices from other brands are eligible as well. The Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, and Nexus 6 are first in line to receive the update so if you are the owner of one of those devices, it’s your lucky day. While all other devices have to update their firmware, the Google Pixel and LG V20 come with Android Nougat straight out of the box.
Getting Android Nougat to run on your phone is very simple, as there are only a few measly steps required. The older your device is, the bigger the chances are that it did not make the update list for Android Nougat, so before looking into updates, make sure your handset isn’t incredibly old.
If you’re all set, the first thing you have to do is go to your phone’s settings and look for the update section. Open it, and there should be an option in there that says “check for updates”.
If your Nexus device is one of the older generations, it might help signing up into Google’s Beta preview program, which will put you on the shortlist for the new firmware.
Once the phone searches and comes back with the update ready, all that’s left to do is download it then install it. After the installation process, you can enjoy Android Nougat on your device.
