    Entered the beta program to get 7.0 Nougat early on the 6P. Downloaded this AM, and have been using it all day. Love it thus far. No issues that I've come across.

    Anyone else update?

    It seems a bit quicker and cleaner than 6. I like the notifications on 7 better as well.

    Pandora is not working well with 7.0. Since update, I find that midway through either the first or second song, it will skip/stall, then a few seconds later crashes completely. Likely the app not playing nicely with the latest, but still an issue.

    Official release seems to be very similar to the last beta - very stable for me.

    And the Pandora update last evening resolved the issues. So far, great update. Glad to be Nexus!

    I tried to be patient for the OTA but was going crazy. Did as you did: entered into the Beta program Wednesday and within a minute I received the notification to update to the non-beta/non-preview 7.0 release. OTA DL and install went perfect. OS is stable, seems faster, and all new features are working as advertised! Tried the Google Now Launcher for a few minutes and then switched back to my preferred Nova Launcher. All apps and updates to apps are stable including Android Auto; advise frequent checking of your apps and allow to update with the new OS. Reboot 6P after key Google apps update to ensure new features are enabled. You will be amazed!

    A clue!

    Sounds like Huawei/Google are aware of the battery life issues with N and have suspended the update while they try to get it sorted.

    Looks like it is fixed. There are downloadable images on the Nexus Factory Image page, I assume the OTA will be resumed as well. It shows the current build for the 6P as NRD90U; I have NRD90M on my 6p from when I got the OTA when Nougat went final.

    I flashed that NRD90U image last night. I'm eager to see if it does anything for the battery life.
