Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Nougat beta program: Samsung stops accepting new registrations as limit reached

It seems Samsung has stopped taking in fresh registrations under its Galaxy Nougat beta program, which allows Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users around the world to participate and get to test the early build of Samsung’s Android 7.0 Nougat update.

Upon trying to signing up for the registration, a user who owns a Galaxy S7 at Verizon, met the pop-up (above) revealing that the limit has been reached for the maximum no. of users under the beta program.

It is also possible that Samsung has stopped accepting more users in US, while those outside US can still have an entry into the program.

Earlier, a leaked document had us take a good look at all the changes in Samsung Nougat update from Marshmallow, while the update itself is expected to hit the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge sets in December 2016.

The release should follow for the carrier devices once it is out for the international variants, but may first launch in Korea, which is where the whole beta thing started too. Right now, the Samsung Nougat beta program is in its third iteration, and it seems Samsung has had enough user to get it required feedback, and enough feedback too as we close in on November.

The Android 7.0 Nougat update for Nougat devices should be released by the second week of December.
