Android 7.1.2 Lands On The Nexus Player And Pixel C

Android O Boosts Battery Life By Reducing Background Process Second Preview To Be Released Soon

Furthermore, the updated Google Pixel C tablet gets a new multitasking menu where users can easily select and switch between an impressive eight apps that are now running on the device. The Android 7.1.2 is also expected to roll out on other devices in the near future.

The release of Android 7.1.2 Nougat to the Pixel C and Nexus Player comes right before the rumored April 3 release date of what could be the last Android Nougat update.

And now the latest incremental update to Android Nougat has started rolling out, but only to a couple of devices so far, and it doesn't seem that many more are in line to get it.

Having said that, it is worth recalling, if in case you do not know what is Android 7.1.2 all about.

The update will allegedly soon arrive on smartphones as well, but naturally only Google's in-house devices such as the Nexus 6 will receive such interface tweaks.

After conducting beta testing for more than a month, Google's Android team has released the new Nougat v7.1.2 update to select devices.

For impatient owners, there is also the option of habitually checking the System Updates section of their Pixel and Nexus devices to see if the update has already been made available for them.

The Pixel C tablet gains some changes that first debuted on phones. Now, Pixel C users simply have to swipe up from the bottom of the screen, and the apps installed on the tablet will be displayed. It is worth noting that the update could take a few days until it's received by all users in the US, MobiPicker reported. As for the Google Pixel C tablet, there's even more stuff to smile about. The company has also included the same gray and blue color scheme we find on Google's 2016 handsets, while a fresh recent apps menu is also present.

Engadget has learned that the Google search bar is also gone with the new software update.
