UPDATE 6/11: Verizon says today is the real day.
UPDATE 6/7: This morning, Verizon pulled the update changelogs that showed Oreo was coming and reverted them back to their 4/19 software changelogs. We’re just going to assume that that means they pulled the update in general. You can stop checking for it now.
After a false alarm in April, followed by a multi-week tease, the Verizon Galaxy S7 Oreo update is ready. According to Verizon, the update should begin rolling out today.
Verizon posted changelogs for the update today, which will arrive as software version G930VVRU4CRE5 for the Galaxy S7 and G935VVRU4CRE5 for the Galaxy S7 Edge.
With the Android Oreo update on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, you’ll have access to native autofill to help with your passwords, background limits that should help with device performance, picture-in-picture mode for apps like YouTube, and notification dots on your icons to let you know when notifications are available. Samsung has also included a new dual messenger feature that lets you login to two accounts for the same chat app, app pairs for launching two apps at once, a new phone UI, and an update SmartThings app.
The update is likely big, so make sure you have plenty of space, battery, and time on your hands.
To check for the update, head into Settings>System updates.
