Galaxy S7/S7 Edge Android 7 Nougat Update?

Has anyone on ATT here in the US received the new OTA update to Nougat (Android 7) on their Galaxy S7/Edge phones yet?  Reports are out that today Samsung started rolling out the update.  If anyone from ATT sees this, can you confirm if and when the Nougat update will roll out to our phones?  Thanks!

Effective February 17, 2017, AT&T released an Android Nougat 7.0 software update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930A.

 

You can also find all the software versions available, including the most recent, by visiting our Software Download support article.

you might want to read those stories better.  its for the 930/935F which is the euro model....  The us carriers have to certify the builds first.  I dont think we will see it till march.

Look man, your Android Central article is just as vague as Android Authority and SamMobile, etc.  It says they are rolling out OTA update now, and everyone around the world will soon begin to see the updates.  Nowhere in that article does it say "only Euro" versions of the phone or when specifically the US carriers will see it.  Mine is a G935XXX, I don't know or care what versions are in what part of the world.  I was just simply asking the question here, and maybe getting the attention of an ATT moderator who could chime in if they know anything else about timing.  But I'll be sure to "read these stories better"   good grief...

My intent was not to make you mad.  it was to state you have to look at the model numbers as it shows where the update is going which does mean something.  The picture they used in that story is of a 935F you can see it in the build number.

 

As to if ATT will tell you when there releasing the update.  They dont and wont comment on it.  As cs reps dont have access to the build teams for the updates.

 

Take this with a grain of salt but ATT did not update the s6 series till May of 2016.  Then to compound the issue samsung is rolling out 7.0 not 7.1.1 which is a problem.

I do agree with you there, updating to 7.0 instead of 7.1.1 is just not smart.  Early reports even seemed to confirm that Samsung was going to roll out 7.1.1 as the official update because of all the stability improvements contained.  However it doesn't appear that will be the case.  Not sure why.

No way your getting Nougat.    Release dates for non carrier versions are not accurate either.

Europe gets the updates first...I've never known that not to be the case. AT&T is always slow. By the time they update the Galaxy S7s to Nougat, it'll be time for the S8s. I've gotten to the point I never pay attention to major updates, because I'm always disappointed. I'm still mad we didn't get Samsung Cloud.

Never, ever will I use private cloud services.  Not carrier, and not Samsung.  Google provides more than adequate cloud storage, sync and backup and is transferable to non Samsung devices.

They are rolling out the OTA update to nougat for S7 and S7 edge unlocked devices in the US. Devices locked to carriers like Verizon, AT&T, etc have to get approved by the carrier first.
