Android™ Security Patch Level: 2017-08-01
Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a new software update for your HTC Desire 530. Android 7.0 Nougat improves your mobile experience with new battery-smart features and multitasking enhancements. This update also includes the latest Android security updates and bug fixes.
With Android Nougat on your HTC Desire 530, Data Saver can restrict specific apps from using data in the background.
Under the Data Usage menu, open Data Saver, and slide or tap it on. You can enable or disable background data for each app installed on your device.
Easier Settings app navigation
Quickly hop between various Settings using the menu icon on the left side of your screen, or by dragging in from the left edge.
Settings are in the same categories as the main list, but using the slide-out menu eliminates the need to tap the back button, scroll, and then select another setting category.
You can now double-tap the recent apps button to switch between your two most recently used apps.
For example, if you're writing an email in Gmail but need to look something up, you can open Chrome, find and copy a link, then double-tap the recent apps button and your HTC Desire 530 will switch back to Gmail.
Reply with speed
You can now reply directly in Notifications from apps like Facebook® Messenger, Hangouts™, or Messenger, so you can continue your conversation without having to bounce between apps.

Software Upgrade Assistant Tool
If you don't have a strong connection to Wi-Fi or the Verizon Wireless network, you may not be able to perform a software update over the air. Instead, you can connect your device to a computer with Internet access with a USB cable, then download the Software Upgrade Assistant (*PDF) tool to your computer, which will check for software updates and initiate the software update process.
Please allow additional time for the apps on your device to continue to download after the software update.
