The next maintenance release for Android Nougat — 7.1.2 — is just around the
corner! To get the recipe just right, starting today, we’re rolling out a public
beta to eligible devices that are enrolled in the Android Beta Program, including Pixel and
Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, and Pixel C devices. We’re also preparing an update for Nexus 6P that we expect to release soon.
Android 7.1.2 is an incremental maintenance release focused on refinements, so
it includes a number of bugfixes and optimizations, along with a small number of
enhancements for carriers and users.
If you’d like to try the public beta for Android 7.1.2, the easiest way is
through the Android Beta Program. If
you have an eligible device that’s already enrolled, you’re all set — your
device will get the public beta update in the next few days and no action is
needed on your part. If your device isn’t enrolled, it only takes a moment to
visit android.com/beta and opt-in your
eligible Android phone or tablet — you’ll soon receive the public beta update
over-the-air. As always, you can also download and flash this update manually.
We’re expecting to launch the final release of the Android 7.1.2 in just a
couple of months, Like the beta, it will be available for for Pixel, Pixel XL,
Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, and Pixel C devices. Meanwhile we welcome your
