Owners of the Galaxy S7 edge (SM-G935F) in Europe have started receiving the Android 7.0 beta update over the air. The installation file has 92MB in size and it comes with a fix for the issue that caused Facebook app to crash. Soon, the update will hit other models, as well.
Samsung has sent a message to all beta participants, informing them that a new update will be available for their devices. “Update provided today is a software that fixes the problem of closing Facebook app. New Beta software that is going to reflect all opinions sent by Customers is being prepared. However, there were also some Customers who raised complaints about Facebook problem and so we are sharing version firstly to deal only with that problem,” said the Galaxy Beta Program Team.
The new build number available for the Galaxy S7 edge is XXU1ZPKC, and users who didn’t join the beta program and manually flashed the earlier Nougat build using the ODIN tool will need to wait patiently until Samsung will release the full firmware package.
The Galaxy Beta Program was launched last week and it went live for users in the United States, United Kingdom and South Korea, and now it’s available in China, as well, where the update has a total size of 1.4GB. Users who install the beta firmware have the chance to experience Android 7.0 Nougat and Samsung’s new UX, then provide feedback in order to help the company fix issues and improve the software. Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners need an active Samsung Account to sign up for the program. Also, they will need to download the Galaxy Beta Program app for registration.
It’s not sure when this program will end, because it will vary by country, but at the end, after Samsung will gather enough feedback and solve potential issues, the final form of Android 7.0 Nougat will be officially released for the aforementioned flagships.
