Hello fellow Nexus 6 users. I was just wondering if this phone will be getting Android 7 update?
It's coming but no scheduled release date.
I still haven't received the update for my 5X yet.
Flash all the things: Full Android 7.0 Nougat Nexus OTA roundup
What's up androidsmarty!
We haven't heard anything official as of yet but when we do we'll be sure to update our Software updates page.
The Android 7 (Nougat) over-the-wire (OTA) images were released on Monday, October 3rd.
When can we expect to see this on the T-Mobile system update page?
Register for android beta and this version becomes available almost immediately. It used to have the beta version. It seems to work fine.
A date would be handy to know, however, that's not a piece of information that's provided to us. As soon as the testing phase has begun, we will make sure to update our software update page that you're referring to.
I didn't but mine through T-Mobile but I got the official 7 on my phone just two days ago. If being rolled out in phases, it might take a while till it makes it to all the devices.
The factory images page for nexus devices does have the new version on there too. If you don't want to wait, you can pull it from there using the computer and flash it manually. That will wipe the phone though.
Thanks for the input theartiszan, and swmiller256. I've heard that it won't wipe your phone if you sideload an OTA image using ADB on your PC with your Nexus device connected. I'm going to backup all necessary files off my phone, before I do the manual update. Wish me luck, and I will post the results of my update.
I'm also wondering. After I manually update using the Google Android 7 stock OTA image; will I still get update patches of Android 7 Nougat through T-Mobile or is it recommended to wait till T-Mobile releases the OTA update?
Here is the android beta program link where you can get the Released version via OTA (no data loss and it is the released version).
Here's the rub though, I have a Nexus 6 but T-Mobile may or may not still support it (ie they don't sell it anymore). I'm wondering if that will factor in on getting Android 7.0 OTA?
I am getting Jealous Sprint Customer received the update today. Maybe T-Mobile release sometime this week or the next. I am hopeful Come-ON T-Mobile
@tmo_amanda so basically it's going to be next year before TMO gets around to updating the Nexus 6? I might as well root my phone and do it myself considering it's almost Christmas
Or you can just flash the image from Google directly using your computer.
