Google Rolls Out Android 7.1.2 Nougat Beta; Nexus 6, Nexus 9 Won’t Get It

Android 7.1.1 Nougat isn’t available on many devices, but even so Google has already announced the Android 7.1.2 update.

The new build will bring a number of bug fixes and optimizations, as well as a small number of unnamed enhancements for carriers and users. The beta testing version is already rolling out for users of the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus Player and Nexus 5X.

If you are holding onto a Nexus 6P you’ll have to wait a little bit, as the Android 7.1.2 update for the device is not ready just yet, but will be rolled out soon enough.

Sadly, the new build won’t made available for those with a Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. To be fair, both Nexus models were launched back in November 2014 and Google only provides guaranteed updates for the next 2 years. Even so the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 got the Android 7.1.1 update which was released back in November.

Anyway if you are the owner of one of the devices specified so far, you can head on to the android.com/beta website and sign up to receive the new update for testing purposes. The public release should go live in a couple of months.
