Android 7.1.2 reportedly rolling out OTA to the Pixel C Tablet

Android 7.1.2 reportedly rolling out OTA to the Pixel C Tablet
The non-beta final version of Android 7.1.2 is apparently starting to make the rounds via an OTA update.. According to one image that is being circulated, the Pixel C tablet has received the latest (and possibly last) build of Android Nougat. Next up is Android O which will supposedly take the old favorite Oreo sandwich cookie into the smartphone age. Based on the latest beta, Android 7.1.2 offers the Pixel fingerprint gesture to the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. The gesture allows users to control the notification shade by swiping on the fingerprint scanner.
Again, based on the beta, Android 7.1.2 should allow users to receive a list of apps that are consuming too much energy from a phone's battery. It also will allow users to set Live Wallpaper in the Home Screen, or on both the Home Screen and lock screen. The Pixel Launcher is supposed to be added to the Pixel C, and a new multitasking UI allows users to see the last eight apps opened in a 2 x 4 set up.

The Google OTA and Factory Image pages are not showing any sign of Android 7.1.2, but if the image of the System Update that accompanies this story is legit, it is just a matter of time before both pages are updated. By the way, the size of the update for the Pixel C weighs in at 340.1 MB.

There is some speculation that the update is officially supposed to start getting pushed out tomorrow, April 3rd. If you have a recent Pixel or Nexus device (other than the Nexus 6 or Nexus 9, neither of which will receive Android 7.1.2) keep an eye out for notification that the update has arrived.

Got it! They finally fixed the Google Now formatting. Still no assistant tho :( Love Pixel Launcher tho. After having it on my Pixel XL I hate seeing the old launcher.

Did you notice that they have fixed the sound issue as well? I was going to sell my Pixel C becuz the system was very buggy, but i got excited about Android O with PIP feature (same as ipad pro). They should finaly add the multi window feature then i´d throw away my notebook.
