    Will we get updated to get the same always-on display as the Note 7? I heard that the Note 7's always-on display now shows notification icons for any app, not just Samsung ones. That would actually make it useful for me to use. Does anybody know?

    No way for any of us to know for sure, but my guess is when we get Nougat we'll get a lot of the new Touchwiz features that are currently on the Note. But I think it unlikely Samsung will add a lot more to Marshmallow on the current Galaxy phones.

    I certainly hope so. Along with a few other Note features!

    My S7E just updated the AOD app. Looks like it finally came to us S7 owners!

    Is the AOD bad for the screen?

    But it's closer to it than the original S7 Edge version.

    Really? I have third party messaging and email apps and I'm not getting either of them in AOD. The displays are cool though.

    Still playing with it. Looks like not all. I am chromecasting something and that is showing up. But I just got a tapatalk message and it didn't.

    That's cool that the Chromecast notification shows. I suppose it's on the third party app developers to make it compatible?

    Yeah. Further playing with it seems like only one notification at a time. Started a song on Google music and that showed up but no chromecast notification until I closed Google music.

    This is really disappointing that they didn't let the 3rd party apps work. I actually got excited for a second till I read the details of the update.

    As a 6 hour removed Note 7 owner, new S7E owner and new to your party and this sub-forum, trust me when I tell you this not the N7 AOD.

    Note 7 owner had to go with the s7 edge just updated my aod and can't believe Samsung didn't give us the note 7 aod with double tap and 3rd party notification bet they won't they will keep that for the s8 and say u will have to buy that if you want that feature well if Samsung do that they can do one since I was a note 7 owner

    A welcomed update, but as others have pointed out... this is not quite the perfected AOD of the Note 7. Not quite sure why they couldn't just port the whole thing over. It's the least they could do...

    Ah, that explains it. I thought it just wasn't working. Used to see song info on the AOD when using Google Play Music. Bummer. Sigh, really miss my Note 7.

    I see song info on the AOD with Spotify and Google Play Music. Still better than it was prior. Looks like more updates will be coming but a welcome update.

    Third party notifications, you mean? That would be a big mistake. It should have been in the S7 version to begin with. A major ommission in AOD.
