If you have a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, the wait for Nougat has been long and agonizing. Fortunately, a giant light is shining right at the end of the tunnel as Samsung is poised to launch a beta program here in the U.S. as well as the U.K., South Korea, and China.
Those interested in installing the Android 7.0 Nougat beta to their Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, need to download the Samsung Beta Program app in the Google Play Store. Samsung needs to approve those seeking to test the Android 7.0 Nougat beta. This is similar to the way Motorola decides which Motorola Feedback Network members get to participate in a soak test prior to a software update.
Be sure that everything essential is backed up, as such beta programs can be a little on the buggy side. Odds are it shouldn’t cause a major catastrophe, but it always helps to be smart.
