For those of you who were worried about Google’s current Android devices not receiving Android 7.1 Nougat, don’t be; Google has confirmed that the Pixel phones’ current software version will be arriving on Nexus devices and the Pixel C before the end of the year. However, these devices won’t be receiving some Pixel-exclusive (Pixelsclusive?) features.
Google has informed us that before the end of the calendar quarter (aka before 2017), Nexus devices and the Pixel C will receive a developer preview for Android 7.1 Nougat.
Android 7.1 coming to current Nexus devices and Pixel C, will land before the end of 2016 as a dev preview was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
