    Anyone else get the Verizon S7 software update that was suppose to include Oreo but didn't actually get Oreo? My phone updated and I got random non-Oreo stuff like Smarthings but not Oreo. My upgrade version(G930VVRS4BRC3) is the one on Verizon's site that says is the Oreo update but my Android version still says 7.0.

    I have been holding off on installing the update, because I thought it might be Oreo. For those of you looking for the Oreo update, have you not seen the missing features Oreo brought to S8 and S9 owners?

    Dual messenger
    Your Galaxy S7 has Dual Messenger capability, letting you use 2 accounts on the same chat app. Keep separate accounts for work and home, but on the same phone.

    You can find Dual Messenger in Settings > Advanced features.

    High contrast keyboard

    Phone screen updates
    The new phone screen swaps the "Mute" and "Keypad" icons to help prevent accidentally hitting mute during calls.

    I'm starting to think the S7 won't get it. part of the reason I chose the S7 over the S8 or S9 when was time to upgrade from my S6 edge in December was that it was a good 70% cheaper than an S9 and about 40% cheaper than an S8, and it should have been 8n line to get Oreo as most android phones get at least 2 major OS upgrades before support for them is eventually dropped, so therefore I thought the S7 was my best bet in terms of both saving money, and staying up to date for another year. But it looks like Nougat may be it for the S7, and that's a bummer.

    I would be perfectly happy staying on Nougat.

    According to Verizon's page, it is available now!

    ETA: Of course, your mileage may vary. As we all know, Verizon's updates are usually sent out in waves so not everyone will get the update right away.

    That's not the Oreo update - that's just a vanilla security update, and I already have it.

    I just checked - nothing available now for me for Oreo. But as others have noted, Verizon sends these out in batches.

    When i posted the link it was for the Oreo update. Version has since pulled it and reverted the page to the last security update. They fooled us twice.

    I was on another site dated a couple days ago. It's coming. That's why I said I stand corrected.

    The update page is back to showing the Oreo update. Just to confirm I checked for the update on my phone, and it showed that I had the update available!

    Yeah, mine too. Would have been nice if they had offered to download later when I got home and was on WiFi, but it was about 80% done by the time I noticed that it was doing this.

    Back on the charger it goes.
