The much expected and highly demanded Google Android 7.0 (Nougat) OS update is now available on more devices. This development assumes significance considering the fact that a significant number of owners of Nougat eligible handsets are yet to see the new firmware on their devices.
Now, the latest in line to receive the new Android Nougat firmware is T-Mobile-driven LG G5 smartphones in the US. Going by official Reddit forum postings (by those who have received the Nougat firmware), the latest software enhancement should hit LG G5 phones running on T-Mobile's wireless networks in the form of a bulky 1.3GB-sized file.
Also, it seems that Android Nougat would download automatically on T-Mobile-driven LG G5 phones between the timeline of 11 PM to 4 AM on a daily basis. Otherwise, users can also choose to initiate manual searches for Google's more recent firmware.
Therefore, users of LG G5 smartphone, who have subscribed to T-Mobile's wireless services, can check for Android Nougat firmware, and let us know if the update is available. To manually search, navigate to (within your phones) Settings > System Updates > Check for System Updates.
Another significant aspect is the fact that with Android Nougat now beginning a comparatively wider rollout phase, it is about time that the new software hits both the carrier-driven as well as global unlocked variants of the Motorola Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus. Like the LG G5 users, owners of the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 plus have been waiting with bated breath to check out Nougat on their handsets.
As far as newer enhancements are concerned, Android Nougat OS update introduces the following prominent new features to Motorola smartphones:
- Multi-Window view
- Google Daydream VR platform
- Quick Switch between multiple applications
- Enhanced Google Doze
- Direct reply to received notifications
