Today Google revealed that the latest Android Nougat beta is now available to try out.
This is with the release of the new Android Nougat 7.1.2 mobile OS, which is now available for developers to download and start developing for.
It is available to download on the Google Pixel or the Pixel XL smartphone, along with a number of Nexus-branded devices, allowing developers to try out the OS’ new features before it is released to the public.
Google explained more about it with the following:
The next maintenance release for Android Nougat — 7.1.2 — is just around the corner! To get the recipe just right, starting today, we’re rolling out a public beta to eligible devices that are enrolled in the Android Beta Program, including Pixel and Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, and Pixel C devices. We’re also preparing an update for Nexus 6P that we expect to release soon.
Android 7.1.2 is an incremental maintenance release focused on refinements, so it includes a number of bugfixes and optimizations, along with a small number of enhancements for carriers and users.
