After what has seemed like a long wait for those making use of the developer preview versions of Android N, Google has today released the final version of Android 7.0 (Nougat). An event which brings to a close the monthly updated previews. As a result, those who own a device which is compatible (namely, Nexus devices) with Android image flashing or the Android Beta Program, can now download and install the latest version of Android Nougat in a final and officially released version. Which also now means that officially speaking, Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) is no longer the new Android in town. From today and going forward, that title now rightfully belongs to Android 7.0 Nougat.
With this being the latest version of Android and even though it is a version which has gone through various developer previews over the last few months (which has resulted in a number of its headline features already being widely detailed and made public), there is still quite a lot of information to actually digest and get through. Especially to make sure that you up to speed with everything that Android Nougat is bringing to the table. So regardless of whether you are new to Nougat or a veteran developer preview user, there is likely to be some adjustment period to endure. Of course, one of the best ways to get to grips with everything that is now on offer with Nougat is to be up-to-date on all the Nougat news that has come through so far.
Speaking of which, if you missed any of the news which came through today including the main Nougat release announcement, details on what to expect from Android 7.0 (Nougat), how to install the Nougat update, the new ‘maintenance releases’ that will be taking place going forward, or anything else, then all of today’s coverage is available for you to read via the links below. As a last reminder, if you do own a compatible Nexus device and are part of the Android Beta Program, then the update to the final version of Nougat should already be waiting for you to download and install, if you have not already. If you have yet to join the Android Beta Program, you still can and receive the update over-the-air.
