Android N
Google’s Android N developer preview is going full steam ahead, with OTA updates heading out to Nexus 5X, 6P smartphones and Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi and LTE) tablets enrolled in the Beta program.

The OTA updates are all quite small, sub-30MB in size, but are being offered to pretty much any of the devices enrolled in the Beta, now waiting here. The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P build numbers are moving from NPC56P to NPC56P, while the Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi and LTE models move from NPC56P to NPC56X.

If you’re not enrolled in the Beta program to update your device, the process is simple and ensures you will be inline to receive future updates, of which Google advises they have 4 planned before a Q3 release of the final product.

If for some reason you just want to flash an image to your device you can download the updated images from the Developer page now – then enroll the device in the developer program to ensure future OTA updates arrive.

There’s not many differences we can see so far, if you see anything let us know.

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, CES and IFA.

Apparently there was a blocking bug that caused Google to put a hold on Android N OTA updates for the Nexus 9. This update might have something to do with that.

Guess they don’t care about Nexus 6 shamu 🙁

It’s an early developer preview. Settle down.
