With Android 7 Nougats coming to devices in the next few weeks, we wanted to share how to update the Android device you’re using to it, or what to expect in the coming weeks.
First, make sure you have your device updated to the latest version of the Android OS.
Download the latest Android 7 or higher operating system from Google Play.
For some phones, you’ll need to install the new version from Google’s website.
You’ll also need to get the latest APK (Android Application Package) from Google.
For more info on APKs, visit here.
You will also need an SD card formatted to FAT32, which is 32 gigabytes of space.
To install the APK, simply drag and drop it into your Android 7 device’s root directory, then open the file manager.
From here, you can select the APk you’d like to install.
The APK you install will be stored in your device’s SD card.
If you don’t want the AP K to be used by the device, you must delete the file before you proceed.
From there, select the Android 7-compatible ROM that you’d prefer.
Choose either Lollipop or Oreo.
Once you select an update, the AP will install, and then you can launch the app to check the update status.
If all goes well, the update should go live in minutes.
Once you’re ready to update, simply download the update package and launch the Android launcher.
If the update is successful, you should see the notification in the notification drawer.
If your device has multiple devices, you may need to re-download the AP from Google, but you should be able to use the same version of Google Play if you’re updating to Android Nougets from multiple devices.
