Samsung Galaxy S7 Android Marshmallow update

The Galaxy S7 came running Google's latest version of Android, 6.0.1, right out of the box. No device has seen an update beyond this version yet, not even the Nexus range. The Galaxy S7 did, however, receive a minor update on March 17, starting with T-Mobile customers. The update was one of Android's monthly security patches, which should help keep your device secure.
On T-Mobile, the software version is now UVS2APB8, and Verizon is beginning to issue the same update, under version number VRS2APB4.
Devices in various regions began seeing a minor update on April 11, bringing improvements to touch features on the screen (this is mostly aimed at the S7 Edge) and an additional settings in the camera settings menu that corrects for skewed images. The build number is XXU1APD1 and weighs 157 MB.
To check if your device is ready to download the patches, head to Settings > About device > Software update.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Android N update

The next installment of Android, currently known only by the single-letter moniker 'N', was recently released as a developer preview to a selection of Nexus devices by Google. The finished build should be in the hands of manufacturers this summer.
Given that Samsung has been somewhat sluggish to deliver Marshmallow to its devices, we're unlikely to see Android N hit any of its devices until early next year, but we'll keep you posted.
