Since the launch of the final version of Nougat last month, Nexus 6 and Nexus 6P have been waiting for an OTA update to appear on their phones. Now it seems Google has started the rollout with the @GoogleNexus twitter account telling people it’s started.
For a start the @GoogleNexus twitter account seems mighty responsive for Google, but it’s a verified twitter account, so it’s legit. It is however entirely possible the responses being given are canned marketing speak, so keep your pinch of salt handy.
The advice regarding the OTA updates rolling out have been given to several users in response to queries on the long awaited OTA update:
@google nougat for Nexus 6 ? Waiting desperately ?

@Larkstar Hi. We've started rolling out the Android 7.0 OTA update & your Nexus 6P should receive it in the coming weeks. Hope this helps!

There’s other examples included in the replies section, though nothing to say when we’ll finally see the Factory Images released for the phones to allow users to do a clean wipe and install of the updated OS.
The fastest way to receive the update if you haven’t already is to enroll your device in the Beta program with users being pushed an OTA update to the final Nougat build.
If you’ve been waiting, then you shouldn’t have too much longer to wait to get your taste of Nougat on your Nexus 6 or Nexus 6P.
