Google is releasing the new version of Android – to some people.
Android Nougat is being sent out to people’s phones around the world from today.
It will initially arrive on Google’s own Nexus devices first, and soon arrive on the upcoming LG V20. Other phones will have to wait until their carriers and manufacturers decide to make it available – potentially leaving them open to big security problems.
The new version of Android brings new features including better battery life, more emojis and virtual reality compatibility that sits alongside a whole host of VR tools.
Google said that there are more than 250 major new features in the newest version of Android, which is officially version 7.0.
But the primary new tools include expanded emoji, quick settings controls that can be easily accessed to change settings and the ability to run two apps side-by-side.
All of the recent Nexus devices will be updated over-the-air, and others will come with time.
