Samsung begins rolling out the 3rd Android Nougat beta update for the Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge


Samsung began rolling out the Android Nougat beta program to select owners of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge a few weeks back. The company has since released two updates and now a third is on the way.

The last update seemed to be nothing more than bug fixes, but the update that began rolling out today is taking some customer feedback into account. The latest update now allows you to change the layout of the Quick Settings toggles. You can now select between three different grid layouts: 3×3, 4×3, or 5×3. The update also allows you to move the Brightness slider above the toggles, or you can hide it in the expanded notification view.

The latest update weighs in at 300MB and updates the device to include the November 1st Android security patch. For some reason, Samsung has removed the “Edge feeds” feature, but this is more than likely just a temporary removal for stability reasons.

The update is starting to roll out to those enrolled in the Android Nougat beta program today, and will be available via an OTA. If you want to register for the beta program, you can put your name in the hat by checking out our in-depth instructions here.
