    Now that I have Nougat on my 6. I want to activate the LG Notification Light.

    As I understand it, First thing I have to do is Root my phone? Yes/No?

    If I Root my phone, will I still get the upcoming OTA tweaks to Nougat?

    Is Rooting, Rooting, regardless of OS and/or N6?

    There is a pulse notification light already in Nougat; at least I have the option on my 5X. It's in Settings>notifications, then there is a gear icon at the upper right.

    Otherwise, you are probably correct; you would need root access.

    Rooting your phone would require a custom recovery (like TWRP) and the superuser app installed. TWRP does have the option of allowing OTAs, but here is the catch: TWRP will most likely be overwritten, and root may be lost.

    For me, root was attained on 5X Nougat by installing TWRP, and flashing superuser, along with a custom kernel, but I don't think that is required.

    If it's any consolation, I turned mine on, and it doesn't quite work.

    I *think* I had to root my N6 to get the light but it works on a stock 6P.

    You do need root access in order to do this on the N6.
