Google launches Android 7.1.2 Nougat for Pixel and Nexus devices

Google is soon going to roll out a beta version for its Android 7.1.2 Nougat operating system. The general preview will be available soon in few months but very few exclusive devices will be having the access to this new operating system.

Adding to the above, VP of the engineering Dave Burke told that the team is rolling out the public beta version. The aim is to make sure all developments have gone right. He also added the list of devices those are enlisted in the Android Beta Program; Pixel and Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, and Pixel C devices. The team is also expecting to prepare an update for Nexus 6P soon.

Though the beta version is accessible to the limited device, the full version of Android Nougat 7.1.2 will be slightly later than this beta release but will be again accessible to those limited device listed above. However, the list does not include the name of Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. Probably they might hit the end of life status with this release.

So what’s the new addition here? Google is preparing to make lesser bug fixations and optimization. This will foster the carriers and users. On a quick note, few changes can be noted. A user will get a ‘multimedia call’ option in the dialer option. Few corrections have also been made in the Bluetooth section. The presence of “high temperature” is probably making its sense for Daydream VR mode.  There are also some Verizon-specific things such as demo mode on the Pixel models.

This new beta mode may not make Quick setting visible on Pixel C devices. If the device will be connected with a physical keyboard, the launcher may crash while searching for apps. On the other hand, Nexus 6 and 9 will not receive Android 7.1.2, however, will be eligible for security updates.
