If you just can't wait to get your hands on the Nougat version of Android that is supposed to be official in Q3, you can actually head on over, and grab a stock image - or sign up for OTA updates and get them pushed to your favorite Nexus device. There are a few devices on the early release list including Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus 9G, Nexus Player, and more.
Preview 5 is listed as "near-final system images for final testing", so the OS should be almost good to go. The final build is slated for Q3, or later this summer.
Here's what's in the latest build:
* System images for Nexus and other preview devices
* An emulator that you can use for doing the final testing of your apps to make sure they’re ready
* The final N APIs (API level 24) and latest system behaviors and UI
* The latest bug fixes and optimizations across the system and in preinstalled apps
