Google announces Android 7.1.2 Nougat, but not all Nexus devices will get it
We're just getting comfortable with the new features added in Android 7.1.1 Nougat and Google has already announced that a new maintenance update “is just around the corner.”

Well, not just around the corner since Google announced the final version of Android 7.1.2 Nougat will be released in “a couple of months.”

The good news is if you're enrolled in the Android Beta Program, you can get a taste of what's to come today. The beta build will be available for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, and Pixel C devices, but an update for the Nexus 6P will soon be released too.

According to Google, Android 7.1.2 is an incremental maintenance update which is suppose to focus on more polishing and refinements. This means that it will mainly include bug fixes and optimizations, as well as some enhancements for carriers and users.

One things that's interesting to note is not all Pixel and Nexus devices that received Android 7.1.1 Nougat will get the new update too. The two devices that haven't been listed by Google are the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, which apparently are not eligible for an Android 7.1.2 Nougat update.

If you want to participate in the Android Beta Program and test this maintenance release, all you have to do is visit the dedicated website and opt-in your eligible Android device.
