Say Cheerio To The Nexus 6 Soon

By  | 

Those who have the Nexus 6 were left shaking their heads in disbelief when they heard that the handset wasn’t going to be getting the update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It was said that the device wasn’t going to be given any new updates at all.

They can now breathe a big sigh of relief as it seems that this wasn’t true and the Nexus 6 is going to be given Nougat. Other handsets to get the update include the Nexus 9 and the 5X.

There is some bad news though and this is the fact that after Nougat, the Google Nexus 6 isn’t going to receive any more updates. This means that we will then be saying goodbye to the handset at least according to Google. Google is going to be focusing on the newer Pixel range of devices of course, leaving the Nexus behind.

Nougat is going to bring with it the double tap or lift to wake feature along with many other benefits to the Nexus 6 but updates from Google after this are going to be non-existent. Let’s hope that the developers keep up support for the device.
