Google will release the developer preview this month and not the final build. One has to register to Android Beta Program in order to be eligible for the update.
Earlier this October 4th, Google unveiled its Pixel devices with Android 7.1 Nougat. Now the search engine giant has confirmed that the developer preview for Android 7.1 Nougat will be released for select Nexus devices by the end of this month.
The developer preview will first be released for Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Pixel C devices. However, all the Nexus devices which are compatible with Android 7.0 Nougat will receive Android 7.1 update but didn't provide any ETA for other devices. Also, the final build of Android 7.1 will be rolled out for all supported Google devices by the end of this year in December. To detail out, these devices are Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus 9 LTE, Nexus Player, Pixel C, and supported Android One devices.
Android 7.1 Nougat brings a bunch of new features including the support for Daydream View VR headset. Other improvements will include, night-light, circular app icons, a manual storage manager, app shortcuts, A/B system updates. Another feature that will be added is the image keyboard which will allow users to send gifs without even copy pasting links. Interestingly, there has been no information if 'Google Assistant' will make way to other Nexus devices or not.
As mentioned before, Google will release the developer preview this month and not the final build. One has to register to Android Beta Program in order to be eligible for the update.
Google recently released Google Pixel and Pixel XL and both the smartphones will be up for pre-order starting tomorrow with sales beginning from October 20 onward. Both the devices will be sold on Flipkart and offline stores include Croma and Reliance Digital. Google Pixel will start at Rs 57,000 for 32GB variant.
Pixel devices have earlier faced issues relating to image transfer and LTE connectivity.
Despite coming with a hefty price tag, people in India as well as across the globe are buying the device.
Interestingly, this bug is only seen if the images are sent from an iPhone 7 Plus to a Pixel device and not vice versa.
Google has already released two rounds of developer preview for Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Pixel C tablet.
The link will be displayed both on Mobile as well as Web (PC) version of search and will display all the ATMs nearby after automatically detecting your location.
The app is available for both Android and iOS and saves resulting images in Google Photos.
The update will be rolled out this week in 62 countries.
Although hackers didn't reveal the exact vulnerability, Google claims that it has already fixed it and released the patch as well.
Fortunately, Google seems to have already been working on the issue and is expected to release a software update soon.
In the latest numbers, Android Nougat has finally made its way with 0.3 percent of share. Android Marshmallow surprisingly saw an increase of over 5% from 18.7 percent in September to 24 percent currently.
