LG has rolled out the latest Android Nougat update for LG G Pad III 8.0 tablet. The tablet was launched last year in the USA and Canada with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system. The Android Nougat update for LG G Pad III 8.0 is now being pushed out by Canadian carrier Fido. The operator started rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the LG tablet on February 17.
The Android Nougat brings in a bunch of new features including split-screen multi-tasking, more customisable quick settings, better battery life, improved Google keyboard, enhanced notifications and recent applications window. Further, the latest Android OS version also brings in ‘Double Tap’ on the Recent button to switch between the two most recent apps which comes in very handy at times. For extended battery life, Android Nougat comes with ‘Doze on the go’ which will get activated even if your Nougat running device is in your pocket.
Users must have 2GB of free space to download and install the update as the update weighs 1.5GB. Since the update is being rolled out over-the-air, it may take some time before it comes to your device and will reach all the users in coming weeks. One can also manually check for the update by going to Settings ->About Phone -> Software Update. Before starting the update, your device should be at least 50% charged with a stable Wi-Fi network.
