All of the new features that are part and parcel of Android 8.0 Oreo are included in this release.

Given that the roll out has just begun, it may take time for the update to reach all units in the country, so you need to be patient.

If you come under the aforementioned categories of Galaxy S7 models users, the time has arrived to trigger the update section.

For the unfamiliar, Android Oreo brings tons of new features to the operating system, including PiP, autofill, notification channels as well as the Samsung Experience update 9.0. Samsung does not list a specific date for when the update will start rolling out, but mid-May means that it should not be more than two weeks away.
