Google finally launches its new Android beta release: Android 7.1.2 to Pixel and Nexus – No major change to be seen


Google finally launches its new Android beta release: Android 7.1.2 to Pixel and Nexus.

The new launch is introduced to Pixel, Pixel XL, and Pixel C; and to Nexus 5X and Nexus Player. The Nexus 6P is yet to take it; however, it is reported that the company will soon include it in the list.

Similarly, smartphones like Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 would be the last destinations to the installation of this feature.

Google has listed all the eligible devices on that will receive the beta rollout. And the same door can be knocked for registering a device for the roll out.

So what is in the box actually?

Supposedly, the new updates might include various bugfixes, system optimizations and certain major minor developments that had been promised by the company to feature in the upcoming updates.

Reviews report that a close look on the updated features does not show any marked change. However, certain rumors float above the surface.

The dialer is given option to multi-media calls, along with normal calls.

Secondly, Bluetooth might appear in touch now that is supposed to be a bugfix.

Some other features seem to be Verizon-specific things; for example a demo mode on the Pixels, and a new “high temperature” warning alert, probably for Daydream VR mode, which reportedly, overheats the phone.

Another update about the latest update is that since two years limit for software upgradation on Nexus 6 and 9 has passed, the smartphones might no more be considered for this update; however, some security alerts may still be received

The company says that repairs in the latest update might be finalized in just couple of months and will further be pushed to eligible devices.

It is the high time for Google users to become a part of Android Beta community, if they have qualified for the latest release.

The company is expecting users’ feedback on the OS, which will be used for further improvement.
