Android's latest major update Nougat launches today, five months after it entered beta. It's ready to install on Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C tablet, and General Mobile 4G, and will come pre-installed on the LG V20 when it launches around early September.

Nougat introduces approximately 250 major features. Among them: quick switching between apps, multi-windows, support for Vulkan API, built-in VR support, improved battery life, faster booting, and data saving for background apps.

 

If you don't see an update prompt on your phone now, you should soon. If you don't own one of the above listed phones, unfortunately you're likely to wait a long while for the update as per usual.
