Google Releases Android 7.1.2 Beta 1 for Testing


Google today announced the next version of Android – Android 7.1.2 Nougat – in beta form. The first build is already available for download via developers and those registered to receive preview builds of Android on their devices. The update will be arriving on the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, and Pixel C. Interestingly, the Nexus 6 and 9 seem to have not made this list, indicating that Nougat 7.1.1 will be the last official update these devices get. That said, I’m sure plenty will make custom ROMs based on future versions of Android for users of the 2014 gadgets, so don’t feel like you’re not being acknowledged.

Factory images for the first Nougat 7.1.2 beta are available here for your respective device. In regards to what’s new in the latest version of Android, there’s likely just bug fixes and security improvements since this is only a maintenance update and not a major release like Android 7.1 was.
