Google has started rolling out Android 7.1.2 Nougat for the Nexus and Pixel devices. The update contains a number of new features and include fixes for the interminable issues that put Pixel and Pixel XL performance under question.

The Mountain View company took to Nexus Help Forum and Pixel User Community forum to announce the roll out of Android Nougat 7.1.2

The new update for the Google Pixel and Pixel XL brings the following changelog-

  • Improved fingerprint swipe performance.
  • Bluetooth connectivity improvements
  • Battery usage alerts.

Besides this, the update also contains a number of bug fixes, added features, and general performance/stability improvements. Although, the Mountain View company recently announced to have fixed the Bluetooth issue on the Pixel devices, it is likely releasing Bluetooth connectivity improvements update to circumvent the annoying bug’s appearance in the future.

Meanwhile, the Android 7.1.2 Nougat release for the Nexus devices only on the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player and Pixel C as of now. The update for the Nexus devices highlights a few changes and updates and carries the following changelog-

  • Enhanced notification stability
  • Fingerprint swipe on the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P
  • General connectivity improvements
  • Battery usage alerts
    Essentially, Google enrolled the Pixel exclusive Swipe gesture feature on the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P early in February this year under the Android Beta Program.

The Android 7.1.2 Nougat will roll out on all the Pixel and Nexus devices (Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C) in the coming weeks. However, if the Nexus or Pixel owner wants the update immediately, they can flash the OTA (over-the-air). Users under the beta program might likely get an update about the public release within the next few days.
