Android Nougat has finally come to the ASUS Zenpad Z8 and LG K8 V. The software update began rolling out a few days ago, so it should be a while before it is distributed to all devices.

Good news for Verizon customers who own either an ASUS Zenpad Z8 tablet or LG K8 V smartphone. The carrier has begun pushing a Nougat update to both devices, and it should be available for all users very soon.

This new update brings the usual Android 7.0 features, including multi-window support, improved quick settings, bundled notifications, data saver mode, and the ability to reply to messages directly from anywhere (on the LG K8, at least). Addtional OEM improvements, such as changes to the devices' Android skins and UI as well as new software features, are also a part of the update.

Updating to Nougat is an automatic and fairly straightforward process. A notification to begin the update procedure should appear on your device; just follow the provided instructions and you should be all set! If for some reason the notification fails to appear, you can go to your settings menu and manually check for the update. Like with all major software updates, make sure to be connected to WiFi before attempting to download, lest you incur a heavy data cost.
