The first Android Nougat update for the Google Pixel and Pixel XL is rolling out as at the time of this writing. This is the same monthly update that is also rolling out to last year’s Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X as well as other Google devices, among them the Google Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.
Dated November 5th, this is part of the monthly Android security update for both versions of Android Nougat installed on the two sets of Google devices. As you may know by now, the newer Pixel and Pixel XL are the only ones using a stable version of Android 7.1 Nougat. As for the rest, Android 7.0 Nougat is still in use, but those using the Google Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Pixel C tablet can access the beta version of the latest iteration.
Like other monthly software updates from Google, the rolling-out November Android Nougat update brings the latest security patches, bug fixes as well as software tweaks that are aimed at keeping the Nexus and Pixel devices safe.
Supported Google devices
The latest November Android Nougat Security Bulletin is huge and it comes with more than just bug fixes and security patches. As such, it will be available for a huge number of Google devices, including the LG-made Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7 (2013). Those using the Nexus Player, Nexus 9 as well as Nexus 6 should also be receiving this OTA update on their devices.
As far as the release dates are concerned, supported devices, especially the newer models of Google Pixel and Pixel XL alongside the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X should be receiving the OTA notifications anytime, if not already. You also have the option of going through the Settings of the phone and tap on About phone. From here, you can check for the updates manually.
Keep in mind that this update is not available for those using Android 7.1 Nougat beta on Google Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X. However, those using the stable version of this OS on Google Pixel and Pixel XL are in line to receive the update.
