#AndroidNougat #Nexus – get Android 7.0 Nougat on your Nexus right now : How do I get Android 7.0 Nougat on your Nexus phone right now? Android 7.0 Nougat is officially available for the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player and Pixel C (and the General Mobile 4G Android One), but your phone may not get the OTA (over-the-air) update for another couple of weeks. If you don’t have a Nexus, you can get a feel for when (or if) your phone will get Nougat based on our expectations.
If you know your way around a command line, you can skip the waiting game by downloading the factory image for your particular device and flashing it on top of your software. But there are some caveats you need to know about when flashing a factory image, so read on to find out what you need to know.
How to get Nougat through the Android Beta programme
Another way to get Android 7.0 Nougat right now is by opting into the Android Beta programme, which has been extended beyond the initial release of Nougat.
Any Nexus device eligible for the receiving Nougat can also opt into the Beta programme — Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C — any continue receiving updates past the stable version. That is because Google has announced that it will continue offering preview versions of Nougat as it prepares the first of its Maintenance Releases, which is expected later this fall.
Devices that are currently enrolled in the Beta programme are the first to receive the stable version of Android 7.0, and the opt-in process is fairly easy.
- Head to Android Beta programme portal on your Nexus phone or Pixel C tablet.
- Sign into the Google account associated with that phone.
- Scroll down to Your eligible devices.
- Find the device you want to enrol in the Beta programme and tap Enrol device.
- Follow the prompts to accept the over-the-air download.
