Google appears to be rolling out the final version of the latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat to eligible devices.
Apparently, some Google Pixel C and Nexus Player users are already receiving the OTA notification asking them to download and install this version, which means Google Pixel, Nexus 6P, and Nexus 5X users will also be joining the party really soon.
Google started testing the latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat as a beta towards the end of January. So far, it seems everything has been a success and hence the commencement of the update. For now, the update seems to be rolling out gradually, with only a few Pixel C and Nexus Player devices currently reporting to have received the update.
This is not strange for an OTA update. Usually, the process is gradual and could take days or even weeks before all devices are finally updated to Android 7.1.2 Nougat. As for Pixel C users, the update weighs 340.1 MB and according to Google, the tablet will be updated with fixes to critical bugs as well as bring the usual performance and stability improvements.
Note that the current update to Android 7.1.2 Nougat is not a beta version. This is rolling out to those outside the beta program. As you may know already, the Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 tablet will not be updated to this new version. The current Android 7.1.1 Nougat is actually the final major update that these two will be receiving, however, the tech giant should continue supplying monthly security updates for a few more months.
After Android 7.1.2 Nougat update, the next big thing is Android O. This OS has already been released for developers and it should be showcased at the upcoming Google I/O 2017 ahead of its official release somewhere in Q3.
