Despite being eligible to officially support Android Nougat, Google has decided to leave out the Nexus 6 from the second developer preview of Android 7.1 Nougat.
Google had announced a couple of days back that it has begun rolling out the second developer preview of the latest update. However, it was only to a small group of devices – the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, and Google’s Pixel C tablet.
The features in this preview update will be included in the Android 7.1.1 when it is made available to all sometime at the end of this year.
Dave Burke, Google’s VP of engineering, stated in a blog post that the “Android 7.1.1 includes the developer features already available on Pixel and Pixel XL devices and adds optimizations and bug fixes on top of the base Android 7.1 platform.”
If you have a device that is eligible for this developer preview and have signed up for the Android Beta Program, you will soon see an over-the-air update to your device.
Looks like it’s tough luck for Nexus 6 owners, at least for now.
