Google’s latest flagship devices, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, were released preinstalled with the tech giant’s own Android 7.1 Nougat, a pretty standard update but still one that came with new features. But now, the company has revealed that the latest update, Android 7.1.1, is now being rolled out to other Android powered mobile devices, which means that some of the cool features previously found on Pixel handsets are now made available to other devices as well. Well, which other Android devices exactly?
Back in March early this year, Google had rolled out a public beta of Android Nougat, the newest version of its Android mobile operating system. In the past, Google has deployed yearly updates before, but that March announcement was considered early based on previous Android update schedules. Still, it provided Android users with the option of quickly installing the beta version by way of an over the air roll out.
Google has launched a new feature that lets Android mobile users create $35 custom cases for Nexus devices such as the Nexus 5x (built by LG), the Nexus 6 (built by Motorola), and the Nexus 6P. People get to pick between a couple of options for the Live Cases.
Google has officially announced that it is making its Project Fi mobile service available to all mobile users based in the United States as along as they currently have a Gmail account. Prior to this announcement, mobile users who wanted to avail of the tech giant’s wireless service had to ask, and then wait, for an invitation. Thankfully, Google has decided to get rid of the invite only system and open Project Fi to all qualified users.
It is less than five days to Christmas day, and for those have not yet found a nifty gadget to give to their loved one (or to keep for themselves), they might be delighted to know that Google’s Nexus 6 (built in collaboration with Motorola) is now being offered by Amazon for as low as $250. Indeed, customers can now order the unlocked 32 gigabyte edition in Midnight Blue color of the Nexus 6 phablet for only $249.99, with shipping thrown in absolutely free of charge.
A week ago, Google had stated that it would begin rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow (the latest version of the Android mobile operating system after Android Lollipop) to Google Nexus handsets this week.
Fulfilling the promise it made earlier this month, Google introduced a couple of new Nexus mobile devices -- the Nexus 5X (built by LG) and the Nexus 6P (built by Huawei) -- during the tech giant’s event held in the city of San Francisco in California this Tuesday. Moreover, the company is already making the latest Nexus handsets available for early order, but the devices will not start shipping until October of this year.
Yep, the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are about to be unveiled. But if you are one of those who does not care much about smartphones that run on the iOS mobile operating system, perhaps you would be interested in going for Google’s Nexus 6 phablet (made in collaboration with Motorola), that is if you do not own one and have plans to purchase a unit for yourself, or for somebody else
The biggest wireless carrier in the United States will be activating select unlocked handsets that include Apple’s iPhones, Google’s Nexus 6 (manufactured by Motorola), and other devices that are brought in by mobile users from other rival wireless carriers, that is as long as the phones are compatible with the Big Red’s network.
For diehard Android fans who feel like their Nexus devices are starting to get old -- here is some good news for you. It appears that Google is joining forces with not one but two Android original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in producing its next Nexus offerings. LG is working on a smaller device akin to the Nexus 5 (also by LG) released a couple of years ago, while Huawei is collaborating with Google in manufacturing a new replacement for the current Nexus 6 phablet (by Motorola).
