And if you’re looking for specific changes pertaining to the December Android security patch, head to the Android Security Bulletin for the details.
The Nexus 6 has received a new build of Android 7.0 (NBD91U) that contains the December security patch, but unfortunately there’s no 7.1.1 build this time around.
Earlier today, Verizon posted a changelog for the Pixel and Pixel XL’s Android 7.1.1 Nougat update, which also contains a number of bug fixes and performance improvements. Google has yet to officially announce the 7.1.1 update on its blog, but we’ll let you know when it does.
