When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides information on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 09/05/2017. If no information is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices and once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, for example the manufacturers might make the update available for a small number of users (i.e. 5%) initially; then if no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll gradually be made available to more and more users over the following weeks.

@Optus @Scott_M   any word on what's happening the with samsung galaxy s6 edge plus? There's been no mention of what's going on with it for months and ive asked several times what's happening with it and just got ignored - poor customer service  . Would be nice to get an actual answer for a change

So I got my android 7.0 update for my Z5 premium today same time as the TV got its android update from Sony too I assume this is because I don't have any optus branding or firmware I got my update directly from Sony. 

I do have one question, voLte isn't enabled is either the phone or optus not supporting this option? someone on the forum mentioned it for the Z5 and it doesn't come enabled though I wouldn't want to use it if it uses data for calling and I don't think it would be HD audio. I did try dialing *#*#4636#*#* it showed the voLte flag to enable but it didn't stay enabled.

Hi All
Any reason why WIFI Calling and VOLTE have not been enabled on the Huawei Mate 9? Overseas variants (UK, US and Malaysia) have this feature activated. I called Huawei Customer Service and they advised the carrier must enable this feature from their end.

Please advise what’s going on? You shutdown Homezone (great product) and then promote WIFI calling, but don’t activate on Huawei’s Flagship model?

@Aman_B, do you mean that Huawei haven't given you the updated software yet or that you're waiting for them to talk to you about something to finish testing?

So, looks like the S6 / S6 Edge has commenced rollout ... but nothing for the S6 Edge Plus 

 

I see a few requests for information around the place; why so hard to reply ?

 

Maybe someone could afford a single character response:

a) Technically hard

b) Not interested

c) Too busy

d) We are getting to it

Optus, Yes we frustrate.

@Scott_M you still didn't answer my question. Ive been following these update blogs for about 2 years and im yet to recieve a clear and concise answer to my multiple questions. I already fully understood the update process and i know you guys keep denying that you have nougat for the s6 edge plus despite google and samsung comfirming optus and the other carriers recieved it months ago. Vodafone are about  to roll out 7.1.1 for the s6edge plus and optus still saying nothing. time to change phone carriers im thinking.
