Earlier this week, Android Oreo for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge finally made its way to users on AT&T and Verizon. This will be the last major update the devices receive, with support set to end completely in Q1 2019.

Samsung released the Oreo update for its last-gen Galaxy S8 a short while ago, and the company has finally taken the extra step, with updates having been sent out to users of the Galaxy S7.

The rollout for the Galaxy S7 has been far from a smooth affair so far. Various models for different regions have received updates around the world, but it’s been a tad haphazard. Users in the US can rest easy now, though, as the update was sent out a few days ago.

Samsung’s update policy isn’t ideal, and only few would argue with that. The company has a penchant for sending out OS updates months after the competition—the Note 8 only just received Oreo in April, for example. Monthly updates are usually a more straightforward affair, however, although owners of unlocked models may have differing opinions.

The update brings a number of features including Picture-in Picture mode, Notification Dots, and Password Autofill. All the things we've seen on stock Oreo, basically. The update to Oreo is also the final OS update the S7 will receive, although it will still get security updates till February 2019 when it reaches the end of its support life.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
