Can't wait for Android Nougat? Here is a trick to get it right now

Android Nougat

Google has unveiled the final version of Android 7 aka Android Nougat and it will be reaching the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and Nexus 6 users in the coming days. But as it happens with any software coming from Google, not everyone gets it immediately. Instead the release is rolled out to people in batches.
The Android Nougat update too will be reaching consumers in the coming weeks. It will be available as an over the air update. But what if you don't want to wait? There is a way.
To get immediate Nougat update on a Nexus 5X or a Nexus 6P, you have to make use of the Android Beta Program. This was launched by Google earlier in March by when it unveiled the alpha version of Nougat as a way to try out the unfinished software on the phones used by actual users.
"The Android Beta Program gives you an opportunity to try out pre-release versions of Android and provide feedback. Devices that you opt into the program will receive an over-the-air (OTA) update to the latest beta version of Android N," Google explained at that time.
But now there is no pre-release version of Android Nougat - only the final version. In fact, last night when Google released the Nougat, the first users to get it were those who were enrolled in  the beta program.
Now, you too get it through the beta channel. To get Android Nougat immediately on your Nexus 5X or the Nexus 6P, here is what you need to do:
-- Open https://www.google.com/android/beta
-- Log into your Google account
-- Check the list of eligible devices
-- Enrol your device into the beta program
As soon as your device is part of the beta program, you will get an over the air update for the Nougat. Earlier this update was the pre-release version of the Nougat. But now, users are getting the final version.
