Nougat update finally rolls out to AT&T's Galaxy S6, S6 edge, and S6 active

AT&T has finally started rolling out the Nougat update to the Galaxy S6 series. The Galaxy S6 (opens in new tab), S6 edge (opens in new tab), and the S6 active (opens in new tab) are now receiving the Nougat OTA update, which varies between 1.2GB to 1.36GB based on the device.

The update brings with it all the features introduced in Nougat, including in-line replies, a better Doze mode, improved security, as well as stability and performance fixes. It also contains the April 1, 2017 security patch. If you're rocking AT&T's version of the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, or the S6 active, now is the time to head into your device's settings to manually initiate the download.

  • Hmm! Should this not be referring to T-mobile's variants of the S6, such as the S6 Edge+?
  • Bout damn time.
  • My S6 still says up to date and I'm on June security
    Now I can't check again for 24 hours! Sucks!!!
  • I just tried today and it said the same thing for me! I'll probably try again next week but I'm so anxious for these new emojis!!!
  • I read that the S6 would NEVER get Nougat.
    I'm downloading something right now, it's 1.229 MB, so I'm pretty sure it's not just a security update.
  • Anyone else lose their contact app and their calendar app?
  • I didn't lose the calendar app but got a message saying that it wasn't synced , would you like to now, and then yes
  • Be forewarned that with Nougat, you can't use Samsung Pay with Capital One cards. They won't verify.
  • Well I can't use Samsung Pay with my bank, so that's not even an issue for me since I never even use it.
  • I'm downloading it RIGHT NOW!!! OMG it's like Christmas on Star Wars day!!!!
  • Good luck with that. My s7 has had nothing but issues since I updated.
  • Exactly. Battery stucks at 8x% while charging, blue light filter misbehaves, even the latest update that I got yesterday ruined the toast notifications!
