Nexus devices have already got the official update for Nougat while other devices are getting the taste via custom ROMs. Google disappointed many Android users this year with its weird dessert name “Nougat” but its features are quite awesome. If you want to try the Android Nougat on your device but worried about root privileges, here’s a simple guide to root Android Nougat on any device.
