Google Pixel XL Compatible with Android O

Google Pixel XL Compatible with Android O

According to Android Central, the new Android 7.1.2 Nougat update features an interface that resembles the Pixel's, which changes the layout adding the similar buttons to the devices as seen in the smartphone. Which is why we recommend that you download the Android 7.1.2 update over a Wi-Fi network instead of the cellular data network.

As you can tell by the version number, Android 7.1.2 is only a minor update with only a few new noteworthy features.

On Sunday, Android 7.1.2 update was rolled out to public users.

Having said that, it is worth recalling, if in case you do not know what is Android 7.1.2 all about.

Now, Google appears to be rolling Android 7.1.2 as they appeared to have posted the Android 7.1.2 images.

Google today posted the Android 7.1.2 factory images and OTA files for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Nexus Player.

With the announcement of Android 8.0 Oreo, Google started declaring the smartphones that will get the update first. Recent reports indicated that Google was working on a new OS update for the tablet which would bring the Pixel Launcher on to the tablet.

We're waiting for more information about the update package from available sources or from the tech giant itself.

The Google Pixel XL sports a 5.5-inch screen with full HD super AMOLED display and a pixel ratio of 1440 x 2560.

If you don't have a supported Nexus or Pixel device, don't expect to see it anytime soon.

Still, don't get too comfortable with the latest version of Nougat; Android O is coming in the third quarter of this year. As for the Google Pixel C tablet, there's even more stuff to smile about. It gives users the capability to turn off the permission right from the notification itself - meaning you don't have to navigate to the apps menu to look for the app.
