Google released the Android Nougat 7.1.2 public beta on Monday for the Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, and Pixel C devices. The Android 7.1.2 Nougat Public Beta is being rolled out to the users of these devices who had enrolled for the Android Beta Program. The update is also expected to release soon for the Nexus 6P. The new update brings tonnes of improvements, bug fixes and optimisations.
Dave Burke, VP of Engineering, said in a blog post, “Android 7.1.2 is an incremental maintenance release focused on refinements, so it includes a number of bug fixes and optimisations, along with a small number of enhancements for carriers and users.”
According to Google, the Android Nougat 7.1.2 public beta will be rolled out in the next few days to the eligible devices. Also, the Nexus 6P users need not lose heart as the public beta will be soon made available for them too. The update is being rolled out over-the-air (OTA) and as it is with OTA updates, it may take some time to reach your device. However, if you’re the impatient one, just download the zip file of the update and flash the ROM on your device. However, if you’re unfamiliar with the flashing process, I’ll recommend waiting for the OTA update.
The public release of the Android Nougat 7.1.2 is expected in a couple of months and I guess the same set of devices will be the first batch of devices to receive the Android 7.1.2 official update. Also interestingly, the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices have been left out from this beta release and as Android Police pointed out it seems to be the end of the line for both these devices.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and enjoy the Android Nougat 7.1.2 Public Beta if you’ve a compatible Android and help Google by pointing out the bugs and errors so that they can be fixed up prior to the official release. However, if you aren’t an early enthusiast, I would suggest waiting for the official release in a couple of months.
