Android Nougat is the latest Android mobile phone operating system and it brings with it a host of welcome changes such as a promise of better performance, better notifications handler, and a plethora of other things.
Now, although Android Nougat was released a few days ago, not a lot of people still do not have the newest Android operating system.
So in this article, I will talk about the 3 ways you can get the Android Nougat operating system for your mobile phone.
1. Nexus devices get them first. Nexus mobile phones are considered to be Google’s phones and therefore, they will be the ones to get the update first. This is also true since the Android Nougat operating system beta was only made available for Nexus devices. If you have the Google Nexus 5X or Google Nexus 6P, for example, then you can just go to the system settings and about device. There, you can check for the updates manually. It will then pop up with a message indicating that a new version of Android is ready to be downloaded and installed on your phone, after which, you just let it do its thing and you should be running the latest Android operating system!
2. But, what about for people who do not have Nexus Devices? This is actually a very common question and thankfully, it was addressed by the other major mobile phone companies. As of this time of writing, Samsung and Huawei said that they will release the Android Nougat operating system anytime soon (probably in a week’s time). You can search for news on it on Google and once the said companies have released their version of the Android Nougat operating system, just do the same thing as mentioned above. Go to the about devices menu on the settings page and check for updates. It should then give you a notification to download and install Android Nougat. Sometimes, however, these companies might not be able to dish out the updates via the check updates feature of your phone (but they already released it according to the news). There is actually one more way you can have the OS installed on your phone.
3. Manually install the operating system. One final way to have the Android Nougat installed on your phone is for you to get the official ROM from your mobile phone company. As previously mentioned, mobile phone companies might not be able to roll out the update to all of its consumers so the best thing to do is just flash the operating system manually. Do note that this is a bit risky and should only be done if you know what you are doing. Also, remember that you can only do this when your mobile phone company has stated that they have released the version of the Android Nougat for their mobile phones.
Android Nougat is a great operating system. If you still do not have the notification, you can try the third step although it is a bit risky.
Be sure to check for updates from time to time so that you can enjoy the latest Android operating system on your mobile phone.
