Samsung rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for Galaxy S6 and S6 edge on Verizon

A month and a half ago, Samsung finally began rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. It's already been offered to Indian and Canadian users, as well as some carriers in the US, such as Sprint.

Today, the Verizon variants of the devices are receiving the update, which will bring the software version to NRD90M.G920VVRS4DQD1 and NRD90M.G925VVRS4DQD1 for the S6 and S6 edge, respectively.

Along with split-screen multitasking and improvements to notifications - which are features of Nougat - Samsung includes its own layer of new features in the update. There are camera improvements, which allow you to preview Effects and Filters while you're taking a picture, and there are improvements to the keyboard's language predictions.

As of the latest Android usage breakdown from over two weeks ago, Android 7.0 Nougat is now installed on just 4.5% of devices, despite being released eight months ago. Of course, 7.1 is actually the latest version of the OS, and that's on only 0.4% of Google Play Android devices.
