Apart from the United States, LG G5 owners residing in Brazil and the European Union now have lots to cheer about as the much-awaited Google Android 7.0 (Nougat) is now on an extended rollout path across the world. LG G5 users can now check their smartphones manually for the Nougat firmware.

The new Android Nougat firmware is live throughout Brazil and Europe, GSMArena reported, quoting trusted sources. If you are an LG G5 user in these locations, you can check for the OS update, which should be in the form of a bulky 1 GB sized file.

If you do not receive Android Nougat via automatic OTA, then you can initiate a manual search for the new update by navigating to Settings > System Updates Check for System Updates.

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
  • New custom Data Saver
  • Split-Screen mode
  • Picture-in-Picture mode
  • Unicode 9 emojis
  • New customised work mode
  • Support for comparatively more languages.

This rollout is significant since Android Nougat now seems to be at the beginning of a 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 to check out Nougat on their handsets.
