Before it hit 2017 in various parts of the world, OnePlus honored its promise and delivered a major software update to its two major devices.
It seems like Sony is moving faster than any other company when it comes to getting the latest version of Android on existing devices.
The software update rolling out today to the OnePlus 3T isn’t what you think it’s for.
It’s the first week of December, so let’s check-in and see what shape Android is in today.
Following the release of Android 7.1.1 on its developer site, Google is detailing what the newest version of Android includes.
There’s a new version of Android rolling out to devices starting today.
With Nougat open to the public, everyone is eager to get the latest version of Android on their devices. It generally takes a lot longer for big companies to roll out software updates, so you’re fortunate if you own a device from a smaller company like Nextbit. The 2016 flagship from Nextbit, the Robin, is currently getting Nougat in a closed beta program to test all software features before a public release.
When it comes to video calling, there’s a lot of services to choose from including Skype, FaceBook Messenger, Apple’s FaceTime, and Google’s Duo, just to name a few. One name missing from the list of choices had been WhatsApp (at least officially), until today. WhatsApp has finally made the feature available on its official app.

Sure, OnePlus’ software is among the best in the world because of its simple and clean presentation. A problem exists, though. Getting software updates out in a timely manner has been extremely difficult for the company. With every device, OnePlus just takes so long to go from testing to rolling out.
If you were thinking Android 7.0 Nougat on the OnePlus 3 would arrive next year, there’s new hope. OnePlus revealed that the latest version of Android will be live on its flagship sooner than we all thought. It’ll actually still be 2016 when Nougat is running on the phone.
If you own a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge and you are feeling a little antsy that your flagship device hasn’t received its helping of Nougat love, you can now take steps to remedy that by signing up to the Android 7.0 beta test that Samsung has announced for the handsets. The Android 7.0 Nougat beta test kicks off on November 9th in both the US and the UK. Join us after the break for more details.
Chat bots and other virtual assistants have quickly become a popular way to not only get information, but to provide entertainment and the feeling of chatting with an actual human. To continue to breathe more life into its new AI platform, Google has reportedly hired writers from various Pixar films as well as The Onion to bring humor and a bigger personality to Google Assistant.
