Android Nougat was officially released on August 22 this year and it is available for most of the Nexus devices already. 2 days ago, Google announced the next version of Android, the Android 7.1 Nougat and also detailed some of the new upcoming features with the new Android version. Along with the new Android version, Google also unveiled the Google Pixel phones which will come with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.
Last month, Google said that the Android Nougat will start hitting the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE in few weeks and today is the time the Nexus 9 is getting it. HTC Nexus 9 LTE has started receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat OTA. The update also includes the security patch for the month of September. The Nexus 6 started to receive the update last week and it contained the October security patch. So this is a little weird that the Nexus 9 includes the older security patch. Google might update it in another OTA update soon.
This update will bring all the traditional Nougat features to the tablet. From now on, all the upcoming updates will be downloaded and installed in the background and at the end, the device will ask you to simply restart it. The “optimizing apps” screen which used to take a lot of time will no longer appear after the update.
