As they teased last night, Google has remained true to their word and released the final build of Android 8.1 this morning with Factory Images and OTA files now available to download for supported Nexus and Pixel devices.
The update brings a number of new changes for both Nexus and Pixel devices. Older Nexus and Pixel devices which includes the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P and Pixel C will note the new Pixel launcher experience which includes the new ‘At a Glance’ widget, as well as the newly repositioned Search Bar beneath the dock. Pixel 2 owners will get the full effect of the Pixel Visual Core for enhanced photos.
All users will enjoy the benefits of an actual Oreo easter egg, as well as the fixed Cheeseburger, Beer and Swiss Cheese emoji which have all been tweaked to look a little more ‘real’.
