Android 7.1.2 stable update heading to Pixel/Pixel XL on Beta program

After pushing out the Android 7.1.2 update for their devices earlier this month, Google has begun updating Beta users to a stable version via Over The Air update.

The update brings Pixel and Pixel XL owners from Public Beta Build 2 (NPG47I) to the stable build of N2G47E. The update is quite small, weighing in at just 34.1MB.

As for what’s in the Android 7.1.2 update, Google addressed that in an update after the rollout began, saying it contained:

This update contains a number of bug fixes, added features, and general performance/stability improvements.
A few changes and updates that we want to highlight are listed below:

  • Improved fingerprint swipe performance
  • Bluetooth connectivity improvements
  • Battery usage alerts

Some of the other fixes are with the early shutdown issue, a fix for the small number of users experiencing pink banding on the camera, and a fix to the audio popping issue some users were experiencing at high volumes.

If you haven’t been prompted for the update as yet and you’re on the Public Beta build, go to Settings > About Phone > System Updates and see if it’s ready for your device.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress and IFA.
