The company earlier skipped the latest update for Nexus 6 due to some last-minute bugs.
Google has finally released the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for Nexus 6 users. The company had earlier rolled out the update for its Pixel and Nexus lineup but it had skipped Nexus 6 due to a last-minute bug, which caused the delay in releasing the update.
The company said in a response to a query put up by Android Police which says, "Unfortunately, we found a last minute bug that was specific to the Nexus 6, which has caused the delay of the 7.1.1 OTA rollout. We've since fixed the issue and will be rolling out an update in early January."
The company has lived up to its promise and has finally rolled out the Android 7.1.1 update for Nexus 6. The update also comes with the latest January security patches and if you don't want to wait for the over-the-air (OTA) update, then you can download factory images from the Google Developer web page and flash it on your smartphone.
To brief out, Android 7.1.1 brings in a lot of improvements and features such as app shortcuts, keyboard image insertion, circular app icons support, manual storage manager, Touch/display performance improvements etc.
