Nexus 5X, 6P owners participating in Android Nougat beta receive final Android 7.1.1 release
Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X owners on the Android Nougat beta program are now receiving the final Android 7.1.1 build OTA. The Android 7.1.1 software first rolled out on December 5 for Google’s Pixel and Nexus range, but the update excluded those Nexus devices participating in the beta.
The Android 7.1.1 update that is rolling out now is essentially the same as the one which appeared earlier in the month, which included the December 4 Android security patches, despite the two-week gap between rollouts.
Android 7.1.1 Nougat, the latest version of Android, introduces a number of new features including more emojis, home screen app shortcuts and GIF support for Google’s Gboard keyboard.
If you own a Nexus 5X or 6P and haven’t been notified of it already, go to Settings > About phone > System update to see if your device is ready for the upgrade.
