Previously this month, Google pronounced that the Android 7.1 Nougat Developer Preview and its SDK tools would roll out to developers later this month. Now that half of the month has passed, the preview has started rolling out. It has been introduced for those who signed up for the Android Beta Program.
Google’s Android 7.1 Developer Preview is Now Available for Beta Testers
Google’s Android 7.1 Developer Preview is Now Available for Beta Testers. Though the Android Beta Program is typically geared toward developers, there’s nothing preventing you from giving Android 7.1 a try. If you are just inquisitive about what this recent update has in store for you. Its beta software, though, so remember that it may still have many bugs.
This is the similar Android 7.1 that’s already on the Google Pixel. So we’re perhaps looking at a pretty firm release. Google isn’t carrying all the Pixel’s best features to other devices. That signifies even though you may have 7.1 on your Nexus 6P, you still won’t get to use the system-wide Google Assistant feature.
In November Google plans to reveal another preview. And then launch the final version in December. If you have a Nexus 5X, 6P or Pixel C and are registered in the beta program now, you will witness the over-the-air update really soon. The final release will also come to the Nexus 9, Nexus Player and Android One devices, in addition to the new Pixel phones.
