Surprise! Google today announced Android 7.1.2 and revealed that the update is now rolling out to public beta testers.
As you might expect from an x.x.1 update, Android 7.1.2 is primarily focused on bug fixes and under-the-hood improvements. Google says that the update includes “a number of bugfixes and optimizations, along with a small number of enhancements for carriers and users.”
While Android 7.1.2 may not sound like the most thrilling update ever, it’s still worth getting exciting about. Not only do bug fixes and optimizations help to make your smartphone run more smoothly, but it’s good to see another Nougat update so soon after Android 7.1.1.
If you’re a member of the Android Beta Program and you’ve got a Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, or Nexus Player, you should see Android 7.1.2 on your device in the next few days. Google says that an Android 7.1.2 beta for the Nexus 6P will be released “soon.”
If you’re not in the Android Beta Program, you can enroll your Nexus or Pixel device now.
Google plans to launch Android 7.1.2 to the public in a couple of months. It’ll be available to the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, and Pixel C.
