Google Nexus 6P
Security update rolling out to Nexus 6P IBTimes UK

Google has started pushing out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for Nexus 6 users. The Nexus 6 is only the third model to get the latest Android update after Nexus 5X and 6P.

The update weighs nearly 860MB in size and carries the build number NBD90Z. It also comes with Google's October security patch, which the company has released for other Android devices as well.

Along with the OTA update Google has also posted Android 7.0 Nougat factory images and flashable OTA files for users of the device to manually update their phones.

The OTA roll out is currently being seeded in phases so all the regions may not immediately get the update. Also, those having carrier models of the Nexus 6 will have to wait much longer until their specific carriers release the update.

The Android 7.0 brings a host of new features like bundled notifications, improved battery optimisation, multi-window options and more. If you have not yet got the OTA update go to Settings>About Device>System Updates to check if the update is available. Make sure you are connected to a stable Wi-Fi while updating your device.

Until now only Google's Nexus phones have received the update with reports indicating that the rest of the Android devices will only get the update post Google's 4 October event. At the event Google is expected to unveil a host of new products like the Pixel range of phones, an all new Chromecast and Google Home among others.
