As Android P approaches, some users of newer devices still waiting for Oreo are becoming increasingly frustrated. But LG G6 owners on Verizon Wireless are getting some relief: Android 8.0 is rolling out to the device now.

Update notes are up on Verizon's website. The update includes Oreo goodness like picture-in-picture for YouTube videos, notification dots, and other tweaks like enhanced fingerprint security.

LG had said it would begin updating the G6 to Oreo beginning April 30. That was nearly a month ago at this point, but at least Verizon G6 users don't have to wait any longer.

We have received a tip (thanks Nick!) that Oreo is now rolling out to the Sprint G6. There are additional reports on Reddit.

It looks like the AT&T G6 is next, according to a report on Reddit. The changelog isn't live yet on AT&T's website, so the rollout is probably still in the early stages. Thanks, John!
