Android is an operating system with problems with updates, which many devices do not receive in a timely manner. Despite this, Google has just announced Android 7.1.2 Nougat, a minor system update that brings various improvements. Of course, the trial version will arrive first, and then it will begin to launch on various devices.
We have already introduced you to Android 7.0 Nougat in depth, and the truth is that it is an interesting version. However, Android 7.1.2 Nougat is defined as a maintenance update, which focuses on fixing bugs and making optimizations, as well as bringing some improvements for users and communication operators. So it doesn't look like it's going to be a major change.
Android 7.1.2 has just been announced as a trial version for the Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player and Pixel C, while the issue for Nexus 6P is planned for a little later. In a couple of months it is expected to launch the final software on the same devices. So it looks like Google is leaving the Nexus 6 behind.
It has been known for some time that Android is going to receive quarterly updates, something quite controversial. Due to the complicated system update process, most smartphone and tablet manufacturers cannot keep their devices up to date, let alone at this rate. Some have interpreted that this decision is intended to favor the Google Pixel, since Google's own smartphones are the only ones that are updated immediately after each launch.
If you have one of the above devices, you can try Android 7.1.2 Nougat. In the next few days you will receive the update if you sign up at the Android Beta Program link that we leave you at the end of the article. Test versions can be buggy, but generally Google releases them when they are fairly stable.
Although Android 7.1.2 Nougat has been officially announced, Google has been very vague about its features. You've made it clear that this is a minor version, but it would be interesting to know exactly what changes have been made. In any case, in the next few days the update will arrive and we will find out.
What do you think of Android 7.1.2 Nougat? Is it necessary to release it with such limited improvements, or do you think it's not worth it?
