Google now offering Android 7.1.1 updates for Pixel and Nexus devices


After going through some beta releases, Android 7.1.1 is officially making its way to the public.

Verizon today announced updates for its Pixel and Pixel XL phones with the build number NMF26O. Google says that these updates are Android 7.1.1, and the company also revealed 7.1.1 updates for the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 9, and Pixel C. The updates for the 6P, 5X, and 9 are build NMF26F, while the Pixel C is build NMF26H.

As for what’s included in these updates, everyone is getting the new December security patches. Verizon says that its Pixel customers can expect several bug fixes as well, and Pixel/Pixel XL owners should also be getting double-tap-to-wake and lift-to-check Moves for checking notifications on their display. Meanwhile, Nexus users can expect to receive app shortcuts, image keyboard support, and more.

Android 7.1.1 doesn’t appear to be rolling out over the air to devices quite yet, but Google has posted the factory images and OTA updates if you’re comfortable with sideloading. The over the air updates should begin hitting devices later today, so if you’ve got a Pixel or Nexus device that’ll be receiving Android 7.1.1, keep an eye out for your update.
