Android 7.1 Dev Preview To Run In Last Nexus Devices And Pixel C By Late 2016
Google's new Pixel phones are running on the latest Android 7.1 Nougat operating system. However, Nexus devices and Pixel C users have a chance to enjoy the same software, as a dev preview for the Android 7.1 will run these devices by late 2016.
Android 7.1 Nougat For Nexus Phones And Pixel C
Google has confirmed to Android Police that the Nexus phones and the Pixel C will receive the current version of Android. They have disclosed that it will be available before the end of this year. However, the company has not mentioned which particular Nexus phones would benefit from the update.
The report states that the Nexus 6P and 5X will more likely receive it. But there might be a lesser chance for the Nexus 6 and 9 users.
Possible Features In Android 7.1 Nougat
Nexus and Pixel C users are guaranteed to not have the same features like the new Pixel and Pixel XL phones. Google would want them to be exclusive to their new flagship phones. Among the said features that will be missed are the Pixel Launcher and filled nav buttons.
According to the PC World, the rapid-fire access to the Google Assistant will also not be carried over. Most importantly, the 24/7 screen sharing and support service Support Tab might just be in the Pixel and Pixel XL phones.
Though the Android Police revealed that the Nexus devices and Pixel C will receive the Night Light feature.
How Will It Affect The Nexus and Pixel C Users?
Google has not given that much details yet on what features Nexus and Pixel C users could expect. This may be a good news to them. This is despite the hype around the new Pixel phones.
The Android 7.1 Nougat for the current devices might be a smart strategy. Users may not be contented with the features it has. They will be convinced to buy Pixel and Pixel XL phones instead. However, if users are already satisfied, there's no need for the new Pixel phones.
