Nexus 6 Will Finally Receive Android 7.1.1 Nougat
A couple of months have passed since Google tried to roll out Android 7.1.1 Nougat to Nexus 6 and failed. However, now it seems like Google finally managed to fix the bug which was causing Android 7.1.1 Nougat to malfunction on Nexus 6. The major operating system update had a bug in its code which made Android Pay and SafetyNet unavailable. Taking in consideration the importance of these two features, Google was forced to roll out an update which set Nexus 6’s operating system back to Android 7.0.
Android 7.1.1 Nougat Arrives to Nexus 6
Nexus 6 owners should be happy to know that numerous reports are showing that Android 7.1.1 Nougat will be rolling OTA (over the air) to them. In fact, a couple of Nexus 6 owners already received the update. Worth mentioning is that Google didn’t announce when it will start rolling out Android 7.1.1 Nougat to the wide public but we can be sure that it’s going to happen during the upcoming days.
Google likes to roll out major updates through a systemically method. This means that only 10,000 Nexus 6 units will receive the update each day and we don’t know how much time the Android parent is going to need before it updates every Nexus 6 to Android 7.1.1.
How to Get Android 7.1.1 Nougat
Nonetheless, Nexus 6 owners will receive a system notification once Google’s new update is available for download. However, there’s also the option of checking for it manually. In order to do that, Nexus 6 owners will need to access their settings panel and look for Android 7.1.1 Nougat in the “Updates” section.
Even though Google took a lot of time until it could find the bug which was making Android Pay and SafetyNet unavailable, Nexus 6 owners should be happy that Google didn’t forget about them and kept working on this issue. The reason why I am saying this is because Google made it obvious that all of its attention is focused on its latest Pixel lineup.
