Starting today, Google Nexus devices will be receiving the long waited Android 7.0 Nougat update, it's an OTA update and will roll out gradually. The nexus devices which will get the update includes : the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C, and General Mobile 4G (Android One) will all be updated.

As it's an over-the-air update " it may take several weeks " before the update lands every device, a Google spokesperson told VentureBeat. But Nexus 5 won't get the update, if you enrolled a device in the Android Beta Program, you will also receive the final version.

As promised earlier, starting August 22 Nexus devices will be rolling out with the Android N update. It's really great news for last year's Nexus device owners as they are the first to get the new desert update. 

Last month, Google roll out the final Developer Preview of its latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS, there were total of five developer previews one per month. “You will NOT see a big difference between the OTA and the last Developer Preview in the Android Beta Program,” a Google spokesperson said today.

The OTA's just begin to roll out, however we don't have the factory images for the time being. They should be appearing rather soon though.
