Both my Nexus 6P and 9 updated this afternoon.
I was on the beta version so updates arrived earlier.
Update was only 40MB or so.
No issues.

Upgraded from the Beta to official on my 5X today without any issues :)

 

Friends 5X is yet to get it - official images can be fetched from here and flashed directly to your phone.

My 5X received it yesterday. I was on the beta, and it updated with no problem. It's been running flawlessly so far, but it's still a bit early to say it's amazing. 

 

 

 

Apparently you can sign up for the beta still, and the full version will come down pretty quickly. The images should be up soon however so it may be worth waiting.

I'm hoping for an S4 custom ROM before too long, Resurrection Remix is often quite up to date.

Have you noticed any difference in the battery life with Nougat?

I was on stock and signed up to the beta program yesterday to get it. Got it immediately. Was an 1100MB download though. Will probably just stay on beta now. I have heard report you can sign up to it, get the update and then leave without having to do a full reset like on the previews.

 

*EDIT* Battery life seems better, I have not used it much though and this is the first full charge. Currently reporting 84% with an estimated 1 day and three hours after 5 hours off the charger for my 5x. That will probably change as I have not used it much this morning. Will have to see if it gets to battery saver by 9pm tonight like normal.

Signed up to beta and downloaded 7.0 no probs. Then opted out of beta without the need to wipe phone :)

I have indeed.
Standard use will get whole couple of days with a bit to spare.
Weekends tend to get even more with sometimes full three days
Current stats after a whole day's use:
On for 14 hours
73% battery left estimated to be 1 day and 15 hours

Couldn't be happier.

This update has been good for me. Consistently getting through the day with 30-40% remaining now instead of hitting the battery saver. After a light use day today, I still have 68% after taking the 5x off the charger this morning.

I actually tried that on my N6 and it offered the beta to download which I did but didn't install. Had to sign out of the beta, delete the download to stop the nagging messages (deleted the cache) and got the phone back to no notification.

 

 

 

When you signed up for the beta, it offered the production 7.0, not the beta?

Unfortunately there is some holdup with the original Nexus 6 - it's been over a week since the OTA builds for the other Nexus devices have been released, but still none for the N6 (even the Nexus TV has an OTA out, so they've obviously run into a last minute problem.)

 

Once the final release is out, enrolling in the program will result in a production 7 offer.  I wouldn't install the beta unless you wanted the possibility of having your phone wiped.

Keep an eye on sites like this android police one to find out when the N6 OTA is finally released.

I am starting to wonder if the rollout has been put on hold as my wife's N5x still hasn't got the update. I haven't enrolled her in the Beta.

 

I enrolled my N6 in the beta after the release hoping for a quick update on that as well but that hasn't happened yet either.

 

 

 

Mind you the beta (NPD90G) on the N6 appears very stable, couple of minor issues where multiple touches are needed but no crashing or major slow downs.

I have a Nexus 6 which is enrolled in the Beta program. I have not seen an y sign that I have received the full Nougat I still get the you are in beta afetr a reboot which is a pain as you have to sit there and wait for the beta notice otherwise the phone does not finish booting. It just sits at the notice. Can one opt out of the neta at this point or will it force a rebuild. Do I have to wait for a new version to download or something before I can get full version 7
