The latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat beta is now available for developers who are involved with the Android Beta Program. However, it is limited by far to Google devices only.

As of yesterday, reports started coming in that Google has begun rolling out the latest revision of the Android Nougat operating system with the lucky ones to try it out first belonging to the Android Beta Program. The updated OS beta can only be downloaded on Google devices such as the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus Player and Nexus 5X. The build for the Nexus 6P will reportedly follow soon.

According to PC Advisor, the Android 7 Nougat is the actually the last in the Nougat line. It was released on Aug. 22 of last year and has since been updated a number of times with the latest revision - the Nougat 7.1.1 -- coming last December. Though the Android Nougat 7.1.2 is still in beta version, owners of the previously mentioned Google devices can now install the updated OS provided they enroll in the beta program.

To be part of the Android Beta Program, one must open the browser in their Pixel or Nexus device and go to g.co/android beta before the owner is asked to sign into their Google account. Once signed in, scroll down until 'Your eligible devices' appear along with the compatible Nexus devices. Choose the right Nexus device and click on the Enroll Device button. This will enroll the owner's device to the program. Afterward, the page will show the Terms and Conditions. Simply tick 'I agree...' and click on the Join Beta button.

The device enrolled in Google's Android Beta Program will then get an OTA update which says 'A system update will soon be offered to your device'. Simply click on the OK that comes after it and the device's OS will be updated within 24 hours.

The Android Nougat 7.1.2 is expected to be officially released a few months from now.
