Nougat is live on Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Verizon is finally putting Android 7.0 Nougat on Samsung’s 2016 flagship.

The carrier just announced that owners of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge on its network will begin receiving a software update for the latest version of Android as soon as today. The software update is rolling out in waves, though, and thus you may not get it right away. But you can still try slamming the “Check for updates” button to see if anything happens.

Samsung has tweaked TouchWiz to match what would’ve been on the Galaxy Note 7, and of course you get everything Nougat has offered since last year. And, for those of you who hate pre-installed apps, you’ll be happy to know that Verizon removed the Go90 app as well.

Each of the four major U.S. carriers now have Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge updated. Because of this, the Android distribution numbers in the coming months should become favorable for Google’s Nougat.

Verizon’s full changelog can be found on the software update’s official page.
