Just as expected, today Google is starting the rollout of Android 7.0 Nougat to supported devices. These are the Huawei Nexus 6P, LG Nexus 5X, Motorola Nexus 6, HTC Nexus 9,Asus Nexus Player, Google Pixel C, and General Mobile 4G.
The release comes a little more than a month after the final Android 7.0 Developer Previewbecame available, keeping with Google’s revamped timeline this year. Since the company is doing things differently in 2016, there are no new Nexus devices becoming official today.
As is usually the case with Android system updates, the rollout of Android 7.0 should take weeks to complete, so don’t panic if your beloved Nexus isn’t showing an update notification in the next ten minutes. Devices that are currently running the Developer Preview will be updated too, by the way.
