Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge get Android Nougat


Samsung has begun rolling out Google’s Android Nougat operating system to its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones.

The update comes with all the new features Google introduced with Nougat, but with Samsung’s own TouchWiz interface on top.

The main change centres on split screen view, which allows users to see two apps open side–by–side. Additionally, Samsung has rolled out a new multi window view that allows users to see access a further five apps simultaneously.

The swipe down Quick Panel has been refreshed with a cleaner look and four new Performance Modes allow users to customise the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge depending on their needs.

Optimised mode boost battery life; game mode provides a new game launcher; entertainment mode enhances sound and image quality; and high performance mode delivers the best display settings possible.

The update also means the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge support Samsung Pass, allowing the fingerprint scanner to act as a master key for logging into select websites and apps.

Owners of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge can download Android Nougat now.
