Following the release of Android 7.1.1 Nougat update that was later rolled out to supported Nexus and Pixel phones from Google — the same treatment, however, was not issued to Nexus 6 users, as most are bitterly complaining.
The search giants, doing what they do best, have somehow managed to convince Nexus 6 users that the company is working on disseminating the Nougat update to them as soon as possible. In fact, the company has promised these users that it will do everything in its power to start rolling out the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for Nexus 6 devices as early as the first week of January.
Furthermore, it was reportedly discovered that the reason for the delay in rolling out the update for Nexus 6 smartphone devices was due to a last minute bug that was reportedly spotted by the company which took a lot of time as the company was trying to deal with it.
Even though the company claims to have fixed the issue, many Nexus 6 users are hoping that when the Nougat update finally arrives, they wouldn’t have to worry about glitches and all sorts of defects.
Just to recap, the Android 7.1.1 update brings so many cool features including application shortcuts, keyboard image insertion, and support for circular app icons, new emojis, and many others. And because Nexus phones failed to receive the Android 7.1.0 update at the specified time, only makes the update to become even more important for the lineup.
Also putting into consideration the fact that Nexus 6 is an ageing device, there is high chance that this might be the last major update that the smartphone is likely to receive from Google before the search giant announces support discontinuation for the device.
