The Android 7.1.2 update for Google’s Pixel C tablet brings the Pixel Launcher and a tweaked multi-tasking menu. The update also introduces Pixel fingerprint gestures on the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X
Google has started bringing the final Android 7.1.2 update for Nexus Player and Pixel C tablets. The update comes just weeks after the release of the second beta of Android 7.1.2 for Pixel and Pixel XL devices. Android Police noted that only Nexus Player and Pixel C tablets have confirmed receiving this update.
It’s not clear when Android 7.1.2 will roll out to other devices, but the update will hit Nexus devices in the coming days. Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 users should note that the Android 7.1.2 update is not planned for these devices. Android 7.1.2 is a minor update that brings some notable features to Pixel and Pixel XL on other Nexus or Pixel devices. The update introduces Pixel fingerprint gestures on the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, while the Pixel C tablet is finally getting the Pixel launcher. The update also comes with a new battery usage list.
Google’s Pixel C tablet seems to be the biggest beneficiary of this new update. Some Pixel C users have noticed that the software on their tablet now looks closer to the Pixel smartphone. The Pixel C now has the same button layout and a new multi-tasking menu. With Android 7.1.2, Google is probably integrating the experience across both Nexus and Pixel offers.
