The images are ready and out there and so will be the over-the-air updates in a few weeks’ time.

Android 7.1.1 Nougat, the first iterative software update for the new Google Pixel and Pixel XL, has been released to the devices and is being distributed to eligible devices over what we believe to be the next several days via general OTA or Android Beta Program OTA, if applicable — in addition to the Pixels, those are the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, both Wi-Fi and LTE versions of the Nexus 9, the Pixel C and the General Mobile 4G on Android One.

The update brings the API level to 25 and standardizes bottom-paradigm navigation menus in apps, robust support for image keyboards, app shortcuts and more.

Images are available to be flashed from the Google developers file bay. Excluded at this point are Nexus 6P users on Verizon and the Nexus 6, but we suppose proper updates for those devices will come in time.

Verizon has also listed Android 7.1.1 availability on its site. A full list of fixes and improvements can be found here, but major changes have to do with voicemail, corrupted text and call medium preferences (Wi-Fi versus cellular).

Build names are different per device category:

  • For most Nexus devices, it is NMF26F
  • The Nexus Player’s build is called NMF26J
  • The Pixel C’s build is NMF26H
  • The Pixel phones’ builds are NMF26O

Android Maintenance Previews continue to be built and devices enrolled in the Android Beta Program will be updated when they are released.
