Android 7.0, 7.1 Nexus 6P Release Date Revealed; Over the Air Installation Available

Android Nougat 7.0 is available right now and so is the 7.1 update. The good news is that the Nexus users, especially Nexus 6P, Nexus x, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and the Nexus Player users can already upgrade their current OS to the updated one.

Google already released the Android Nougat 7.0, but it has not stopped there. According to the recent reports, they also launched the beta version of Android Nougat 7.1 with a release date last October and the stable version will be in December.

Google has started the release date of the November Android security update. However, this security update is only for compatible devices. For the first time, Pixel devices received the security update together with Nexus devices. The news said that this security update can only be downloaded if the users have Android Nougat 7.0 or Android Nougat 7.1 running on their Nexus 6P devices. This news makes most of the Android users somehow disappointed because their devices are not compatible for the update.

Various tech reviews are also all over social media. There are several tips given before the users do the installation. OTA (over-the-air) is highly recommended because it does not require the users to erase all the memory. However, it is advisable to back up all data before doing the installation through any method. They added that a very good Wi-Fi strength and battery life must be ensured.

Android Nougat 7.0 and 7.1 updates are officially available to Nexus devices, but the majority of Android users might just have to wait a little bit longer for the updated OS to arrive on their devices. There are countless reasons for this. Sadly, there have always been long delays on Android updates, and this is a fact. Moreover, there have been reports about several phones like the Nexus 6P are getting the updated OS while the others are not so much in a hurry.
