Android 7.1.2 Nougat Beta 2 update rolling out to Pixel and eligible Nexus devices


Google started rolling out the Android 7.1.2 Nougat beta update to Pixel and eligible Nexus devices in late January, and now, the company is rolling out the 7.1.2 Nougat beta 2 update for the same devices. However, this update is not rolling out to all the users, but, only to the ones who are enrolled in the beta program.


This 7.1.2 Nougat beta 2 update which is rolled out to Pixel and Nexus devices carries build number NPG47I, and needless to say, the size varies depends on which device you are receiving it on. The update is currently rolled out over the air so you should expect the update notification soon. However, if you don’t, you can check for it manually by going to the Settings > About phone > System updates menu.

The devices which are receiving this 7.1.2 Nougat beta 2 update are Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Yes, you read that right, the Nexus 6P isn’t left behind by Google like last time. Speaking of the update itself, there aren’t major inclusions in it as its just a maintenance release. Having said that, the Nexus 6P has received the notification fingerprint gesture this time with the update which was initially excluded in the last beta update.

Like we said, the Android 7.1.2 Nougat beta 2 update is currently rolling out to only those users who are enrolled in the beta program, however, the update is expected to be released publicly to the users in early April.
