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!

Well Google initially is responsible. Otherwise the manufacturer pushes it to the carrier and AT&T delivers it to any branded phone. If you're didn't get the update I would recommend wiping the cache partition and trying manually by searching for it in ABOUT PHONE/CHECK FOR UPDATE.

 

If not then give 611 a call, ask for technical support, and someone can push it out to your device for you. 😄

I spoke to AT&T last week and they told me I should contact Samsung because they couldn't help me....the Samsung Rep at Best buy ended up helping me with a 7.0 download.

Sure it's been out for over 4 months but since your using a Verizon phone you need to talk to them. Att won't update your phone.

Tuesday I went to the AT&T store to ask about it and the lady told me it
isn't up to them to upgrade the Android operating system. So of course I
left mad. Then when I woke up Wednesday it was in my notifications that I
had a system update.

I guess it does come from Android.

Nope they come from ATT directly...  Each carrier pushes there own updates for there branded phones.  The update goes from the OEM to ATT for testing then is released to the user if att finds no bugs.

I would say you will see it in May... Their are test builds on the ATT servers so that says they are testing it..  The versions on the server are still buggy so that tells me there will be a wait.

 

The s8 active and note 8 should see Oreo in April...
