Pixel C

The stable non-beta version of Android 7.1.2 Nougat is starting to make rounds to Pixel C Tablets. According to a circulating image, the Pixel C is receiving an OTA update with a size of just over 340MB, following several rounds of beta testing. This is expected to be the last Nougat software update for this device. Android 7.1.2 brought the Pixel fingerprint gestures to the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P. This allowed users to bring down the notification shade by swiping on the rear mounted fingerprint sensor.

Android 7.1.2 notifies the users as to which apps consume too much battery life. Now, the users can also set live Wallpapers in the Home Screen, or both the Lock Screen and the Home Screen. The latest update brings the Pixel launcher to the Pixel C, and adds a new multitasking User Interface which allows users to see the last eight apps opened in a 2 x 4 arrangement.

The update is officially supposed to start getting pushed out from April 3rd. Therefore, if you own a Nexus or a Pixel device (The Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 will not be receiving the update), watch out for a notification on the update.
