Not too long ago we received hints that we’d see a second 7.1 developer preview for Nexus devices, as the rollout process had reportedly begun yesterday. Now, we finally see the system images become available for select Nexus devices!

This is the final update to the Android 7.1 Developer preview before the final release, and it includes the developer features available on the Pixel and Pixel XL as well as extra optimization and bug fixes. If you are a developer, using this preview you will be able to make sure your apps are ready for 7.1.1 once it reaches consumers.

The update includes the features and APIs (level 25) included in the first developer preview, and Google is also updating the SDK build and platform tools in Android studio. The latest version of the support library (25.0.1) is available as well for you to add image keyboard support, bottom navigation and more to your apps running on devices running lower API levels.

Below you can find links to install the update on your Nexus or Pixel C. Alternatively, you can follow this link to find the same links and instructions. Finally, you can enroll for automatic OTA system updates in the Android Beta Program as well.

You can also find the list of big fixes in Android DP2 here, but keep in mind many of these won’t be present in this release. We’ll keep you updated with the changes we find!
