Samsung rolling out second Android 7.0 Nougat build in Europe

It has only been a week since Samsung announced the launch of the Android 7.0 Nougat Galaxy Beta Program for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge. The program has gone live in the United States, United Kingdom and South Korea. Samsung released the first beta Android 7.0 Nougat build in China today while it’s rolling out the second build for Galaxy Beta Program members in Europe.

Samsung is rolling out the second beta build over-the-air in Europe. Users who already have the first beta build installed will automatically receive a notification informing them that this update is available for download. It appears to be a minor update since it weighs in at just 92MB. The official changelog mentions that this update includes device stability improvements, bug fixes, performance improvements and more. It’s unclear at this point whether the second Android 7.0 Nougat beta build brings any new features to the supported devices.

Speaking of features, if you’re curious about the new features included in Nougat, don’t forget to check out our What’s New With Nougat series in which we take a detailed look at quite a few of the new features Samsung is going to introduce with Nougat.

Seems that only those who succesfully registered in the beta program are receiving it, regardless if they installed the rom through OTA or ODIN. In my case, I registered, got bored of waiting => flashed the rom through ODIN but never de-registered, and I received the update yesterday as soon as it was launched.

Do you have a U.S. carrier phone??? The Galaxy beta app will not install on U.S. phones. I have tried to install it.

A fix for just Facebook can’t be 92mb that’s too big… I’m assuming they also fixed other apps or they fixed other things like the wifi turning on by its own but didn’t mention them

Actually the update is just for fixing the Facebook app crash, in the beta notice i got the below notification (it seems that i can not post a screenshot here):

Urgent Version release due to force close issue when running Facebook.
Dear customer,
Update 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.
