In a battle to release Android Nougat to Android phones, This time T-Mobile is releasing Android Nougat update to Galaxy S6 handsets on its network (carrier-locked handsets). AT&T already released Android Nougat update last month, but Magenta isn’t ready just yet to relinquish the fight just yet. Though nearly two months behind, T-Mobile is ready to roll out Google’s latest sweet treat for the now two-year-old Galaxy phone. We heard word hours ago that T-Mobile would roll out Nougat, and it appears as though that rumor was spot-on. T-Mobile is one of the earliest with updates in the US, though even Magenta can be weeks behind Google in Android update releases.
Android 7.0 Nougat is loaded with latest Android features such as Daydream VR-readiness, Doze On The Go, background updating, Custom Quick Settings that allows you to arrange your settings tiles, Notification Direct Reply that lets you respond to a text or email from within your notification shade, Bundled Notifications that gather notifications from one app in the same place, and more.
Google is looking to address the Android fragmentation issue, proposing Project Treble at its latest I/O Conference as a way to speed up the update delivery process by ensuring that the vendor implementation will always be compatible with the OS Framework for future system updates.
