AT&T has released Android 7.0 Nougat update to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+. The update is around 1.5 GB in size and brings a wide range of new features, tweaks, and improvements including stuff like the multi-window view, quick switch between apps, Doze on the Go and a bunch of new emoji. The update also includes March 1 Android security patch.

The update also includes Samsung Cloud and Samsung Pass services. In addition, you will be happy to note that the AT&T Address Book, MobiTV, and AT&T Live bloatware will be removed after they get on Nougat.

The Nougat update has been released as an over the air update for the handset and you can check to see if it is available from the settings menu on your device. The update will bring the firmware version to N920AUCU4EQC6 for Note 5 and G928AUCU4EQC6 for S6 Edge+.

It is good to know that Samsung has not forgotten its older devices. The company is updating various Galaxy devices to Nougat and has worked to update all the various carrier models. Last week, Sprint has rolled out Android 7.0 Nougat update to Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Verizon and T-Mobile lists the Nougat updates for Note 5 and S6 Edge+ under "manufacturer development", suggesting that they are working on their own optimizations and customizations.

AT&T is rolling out the update in phases so it is going to be a while before it becomes available for all users on AT&T.
