Google Pixel Added In the List of Android O Compatible Device

The Pixel C is upgrading to Android 7.1.2 Nougat and it's also receiving the April Security Update, as lots of owners of the smartphone have already confirmed. The update also added the option to choose where you want to set the live wallpapers along with a new battery usage list as detailed by Android Police.

The company first released the Android Nougat version 7.1.2 Beta in January 2017 and then followed by another Beta in March. Well, back to square one, the Google Pixel is now eligible for the new Android 8.0 Oreo update. The over-the-air updates are being sent out by Google for both the Nexus Player and the Pixel C. No real images of 7.1.2 have surfaced as of yet, since the updates literally just started. It is worth noting that the update could take a few days until it's received by all users in the US, MobiPicker reported. Recent reports indicated that Google was working on a new OS update for the tablet which would bring the Pixel Launcher on to the tablet.

Android enthusiasts love updates - even though barely anyone gets them. This could be pretty annoying to users who docked their Pixel C tablet to its keyboard in landscape mode.

Google's Pixel C tablet has been around in the markets for quite a while.

If you don't have a supported Nexus or Pixel device, don't expect to see it anytime soon. The update didn't only bring new additions, but also removed some elements, such as the app drawer. It gives users the capability to turn off the permission right from the notification itself - meaning you don't have to navigate to the apps menu to look for the app. The "all apps" button at the bottom of the tablet screen has been given the chop, and in its place users have to swipe up from the bottom of the screen to see every app installed.
