The official Android 7.1.2 Nougat software may hit Google Pixel and Nexus devices April 3, if recent reports are to be believed. Android Central claims the latest Nougat version may soon roll out, after noting the Canadian carrier Rogers has been testing its voice over LTE (VoLTE) service on Google Pixel handsets running Android 7.1.2 beta software. Rogers is expected to release its VoLTE service, April 3, giving a connection that the carrier may push the service alongside a larger Nougat update.

Overall, however, Android 7.1.2 is largely an incremental update to address a number of bug fixes. It does also include some new tweaks such as an update to live wallpaper and a fingerprint gesture feature, which was previously exclusive to Pixel devices. Nexus devices will have access to these features, before Android 7.1.2 eventually rolls out on to other OEM handsets.

It remains unknown which bugs Google will address with the update; however, some common issues include problems with the including UI, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi while running Nougat, crashes and problems with Quick Settings on various devices.

Google rolled out the Android 7.1.2 beta software in late January, but there hasn’t been much else announced about the software since then. The beta software is currently running on the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, the Pixel C tablet, the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X smartphones and the Nexus Player dongle. These devices will be the first to update to the official Android 7.1.2 software.
