Android 7.0 Nougat begins roll out on Nexus devices today

The latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 7.0 Nougat, has started its roll out to the firm’s Nexus devices.

The company has announced users with 2015’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will be among the first to get the completed update.

The Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player are also in line, with Google announcing the roll out will take place over the coming weeks. The Chromebook Pixel C is also in line for the update.

Android 7.0 features split-screen multitasking, 1,500 new emojis, support for Google’s Day Dream VR initiative and improved battery efficiency through Doze.

There’s also improved customization features, smarter data saving controls and the ability to reply directly from notifications.

While Google’s own devices are getting first dibs, it’ll be a different story for those on third-party devices.

The LG V20 will be the first device to run Nougat out of the box and that’ll be revealed at IFA 2016 next month.

As for when existing handsets from top manufacturers like Sony, Samsung, Motorola and HTC will get the update? Well, your guess is as good as ours.
