Google has taken the beta label off Android 7.0 Nougat, and the latest version of the company’s mobile operating system should begin rolling out to a number of devices soon.
But Google is dropping support for two popular, but aging devices. The company has no plans to offer Android 7.0 for the Nexus 5 smartphone or Nexus 7 (2013) tablet.
Of course, once Google releases the source code for Android 7.0, it’ll probably just be a matter of time before independent developers start porting the operating system to run on those devices. But you won’t get over-the-air security updates or support from Google.
Android 7.0 brings a number of new features including a customizable Quick Settings Panel, a Direct Reply feature that lets you respond to notifications without opening an app, and native support for multi-window features, such as viewing two apps on the screen at the same time.
Google will begin rolling out updates for a number of devices today, including the Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, Google Pixel C, and General Mobile 4G (Android One).
