Samsung updates Galaxy S7 Nougat beta with Facebook fix

Samsung is starting to roll out an update for Galaxy S7 and S7 edge Android 7.0 beta participants, fixing an issue which caused the Facebook app to crash. The 92MB over-the-air update is going out now to European Galaxy S7 edge (SM-G935F) owners, and other models are likely to follow soon.

A message given to beta participants says that this update only includes the Facebook fix, but that further updates will be rolled out based on feedback from beta testers.

Urgent version release due to force close issue when running Facebook.Dear CustomerUpdate provided today is a software that fixes the problem of closing Facebook app.New Beta software that is going to reflect all opinions sent by Customers is being prepared. However, there were also some Customers who raised complaints about Facebook problem and so we are sharing version firstly to deal only with that problem.Galaxy Beta Program Team

The new build number (for the GS7 edge) is XXU1ZPKC.

If you manually flashed the earlier Nougat build using the ODIN tool, without joining Samsung's beta program, you'll probably need to wait for a full firmware package to become available and manually update to the new build. Right now it looks like official over-the-air beta updates are reserved for Samsung's limited pool of testers.
