The Android Nougat OS update has by far been the most popular Android OS update for Google in a long time. The company has brought forward numerous changes to the way things work in Android platform. Android Nougat is now running on over 2.8% of all Android smartphones. This is indeed a good sign of growth for the OS. In latest news, the Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS update is soon heading for the Google Pixel and Google Nexus smartphone owners.
While the rest of the world is still getting the Android 7.0 update, the Google Pixel and Nexus users are already on 7.1.1. A new update is soon expected for them which will upgrade their OS to Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS. The information comes via a Rogers roadmap which rolled out for the Android Nougat OS Updates. The roadmap showed the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to be getting the Android 7.0 Nougat OS update on the 20th of March. The Google Pixel and Nexus users are also getting an unspecified update on the 3rd of April which is highly speculated to be that of Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS.
The time frame also coincides with Google’s two month promise which was made nearly 6 weeks ago. The update will be rolling out only for the Google Pixel and Google Nexus smartphones as of now as most other smartphones are yet to get the Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS update as well.
The Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS update does not bring anything significantly new to the table, but it does feature some minor changes to security and tweaks the overall functioning of the phones in terms of performance. Other than bumping up the number, the update feels rather trivial so far. Changes to the way LTE works are also likely to be a part of the update. Live wallpapers too, are going to get better support in terms of customization. Make sure to check your devices for the update on the 3rd of April.
