The Pixel C is upgrading to Android 7.1.2 Nougat and it’s also receiving the April Security Update, as lots of owners of the smartphone have already confirmed. The 2015 tablet is getting the latest software package that comes in a size of just a little over 320MB. This is going to be pushed out worldwide, after a couple of weeks of beta tests.
The update is distributed as an OTA (over-the air) that is being pushed out is stages, so you probably have to wait a little longer, but not more than a few days, before you too get the notification for the package download. If you’re the impatient type of user, you can also manually search for the update: open the Settings app > navigate to the Status section > tap System updates. You’ll need enough free space and also a minimum of 50% battery before you initiate the update.
After getting the Android 7.1.2 Nougat, the Pixel C will also be getting the on-screen system buttons from last year’s Google Pixel and Pixel XL. It will also receive the Pixel Launcher. The icons of the Navigation Bar will be placed closer to the screen’s edges for an easier way of navigating. You’ll also enjoy some changes and tweaks for an improved performance and the latest Android Security Update. Fortunately, this will fix some operating system issues and it will boost your device’s security.
Pixel C’s Android 7.1.2 Nougat update will take a few days and we’re also expecting Google to start distributing the same package to the other supported products pretty soon. We’re talking about Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and Nexus Player.
We’re waiting for more information about the update package from available sources or from the tech giant itself.
