AT&T has finally released the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S6 series handsets on its network. It’s rolling out said update for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and the Galaxy S6 Edge+. Some of its rivals have already released Nougat for these handsets on their networks so AT&T is a bit late to the party.
AT&T subscribers who own a Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge or Galaxy S6 Edge+ will soon receive an over-the-air update notification on their devices which will inform them that a new software update is available.
The update weighs in at 1.2GB and has to be downloaded over Wi-Fi. It’s a hefty file given that it updates the device to Android 7.0 which brings a host of new features and improvements for the handset.
Some of the new features include an updated multi-window view, new settings menu, enhanced doze mode, and some user interface tweaks. The updates that AT&T is sending out for the aforementioned devices also come with the April security patch.
It’s a major software update so Galaxy S6 series users on AT&T will have to wait for some time before it goes live across all regions. It shouldn’t take more than a couple of days, though.
