Google’s latest version of Android, Nougat, arrives today. If you have one of the devices below then you are in a slow moving queue to receive the update. Nexus devices, the Pixel C and the Android One device General Mobile 4G should be receiving a notification any day now. Another with previous Nexus experience know that when it can take a week or two for everyone to get the update over the air,

Here’s how to check if the update is available on your Nexus device:

  • Head to Settings
  • Scroll down and select About Phone
  • Click on System Updates

Tap the “Check for update” button


There is a quicker way to update

Don’t want to wait for the update? Users who are enrolled in Google’s Android Beta Program are being updated to the final version before others. You can sign up for the program here, click Enroll device and follow the same steps to check for an update as listed above. You should see the update available for download within a few minutes.
