For those of you who have owned a Google-branded Nexus device in their lifetime, you know what a blessing it can be to stand at the front of the cue for all the latest updates. While despite being a very recent flagship for Google and the last Nexus device, Google Nexus 6P had been deprived of the Android 7.1.2 Nougat Beta update, until now.

A month after Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, and the Pixel C Tablet received the Nougat 7.1.2 update, Nexus 6P users have reported begin to receive the same yesterday. Of course, the update is only being rolled out to devices that have been registered for the Android Beta Program.

If the fact that the Nexus 6P device was updated a month after the lower-tier Nexus 5X isn’t bad enough, we have more infuriating news for you. It seems like the Nougat 7.1.2 update for the older Google flagship does not come with “Moves” gestures for the fingerprint scanner that the Nexus 5X has already received with its version of the 7.1.2 beta update.

QUICK NOTE: Free firmware downloads are made possible thanks in part to OVH Hosting & Dedicated Servers – Updato's #1 choice for hosting and storage solutions! Show your support and check 'em out.

Nexus 6P owned will soon be able to see the massive 1.3GB update notification, which is being rolled out incrementally. If you haven’t joined the Android Beta Program already, follow our guide to do so and receive all the beta updates Google rolls out right away.
