Google has released a beta version of Android Nougat 7.1.2 available to anyone with an eligible device in the public Android Beta Program. This includes, for the first time, Google’s own Pixel and Pixel XL phones, which shipped with 7.1.
7.1.2 is set for a public release in a couple of months, and is focused on small bugfixes. But if you managed to buy a Pixel and want it to be running the latest software as soon as possible, now might be the time to sign up for the beta program.
Other eligible devices include the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, and Pixel C, which suggests that 2014‘s Nexus 6 phone and Nexus 9 tablet may no longer receive updates in the future; they‘d both been supported through the beta program until this point.
