Android Beta Update Coming Today as Build NPG47I to Pixel and Nexus (Updated)

android 7.1.2

A new Android beta update is arriving today, according to Googler Orrin Hancock. The update will arrive as build NPG47I for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Nexus Player. 

We aren’t seeing the notes or files just yet, but you should be able to find the files here and the notes here, once they are live.

To sign-up for the Android Beta program and not have to deal with flashing those files, sign-up here.

We’ll update this post as more info arrives.

UPDATE: The update is live for a number of people, it seems. We have Nexus 6P and Pixel rollouts at the very least. Sign-up for the beta program or go hammer on that update button!

UPDATE 2: Nexus 6P gets the fingerprint swipe for notifications!

UDPATE 3: The full factory images are now available.

    Did this update completely ruin anybody else’s battery life? I noticed the first couple days that the smallest uses of screen time were running my 6P down a lot, but I just charged my phone completely, used it and had it down to 90%, then cleared all running tasks before falling asleep with it unplugged, and woke up 3.5 hours later and the battery​ was at 32%. After sitting idly for 3.5 hours. A nearly 60% loss in battery life while unplugged and doing nothing for 3.5 hours.

    It also added powered by Android to the boot screen on pixel XL

    It wasn’t there before which made me curious since it’s a requirement for oems

  • Booyabobby

    Does this finally fix the bluetooth randomly shutting off?

  • Steve

    6p won’t boot after update. 😞

    • Chase Dixon

      Mine sat at the circles for a good 10 minutes before it finally came up. Just be patient..

  • DanWazz

    Sweet.

  • Orlando aka Pixel XL

    Pixel launcher now works for Pixel C, it looks amazing!

  • Allen George

    If you have a custom kernel, so you can use Android Pay or something, you will have to reflash the boot image to get the update to install.

  • Vaporware

    This update changes the launcher on the Pixel C to the Pixel launcher. It did give the option of the Google Now launcher or Pixel launcher at start up.

  • Why don’t they release the factory image? I don’t wanna wipe my device.

  • SteelGator

    I had a larger file download than I have seen elsewhere. Pixel XL. 328.9 MB

    • RJZmanz72

      Mine was 800+ mb
      Huh… Also Pixel XL

  • Taylor Blackley

    Hey it finally fixed the Wifi Advanced Setting Crash Bug!!!

  • Jim

    Swipe for notifications is great, but I’m waiting on double tap to wake for my 6p. Basically the only feature I’d love… and maybe an AMOLED display that doesn’t get burn in after a couple months…

    • Brandon Sobotta

      This comment makes me appreciate my G5 that much more.

    • Gekko

      yes and double tap to sleep too. without breaking fingerprint lock.

      • Adam Ropic

        nova launcher does it on the 6P without breaking fingerprint lock, i do it on mine. you have to turn off the admin permissons for nova, then turn the double tap gesture for screen lock on, it will ask you to allow permissions. one of the options allows you to do it. hope this helps, i had to do some research to get it to work on mine

        • Gekko

          thanks i knew about this but it uses a big annoying kludge. it requires a delay on the screen lock that i really dislike.

          • Adam Ropic

            Yea i know, i normally out my phone down so the lock delay doesn’t bother me. It’s only 5 seconds. It’s the only way to get double tap without rooting

      • Theerapat Muangpoon

        How come my 6p has got double tap to wake.

    • zarxic

      Agreed. I’ll use the notification swipe, but the double tap to wake I would use all the time.

  • Gus

    While the rest of the world is still waiting for Android 7.

    • Brandon Sobotta

      That is up to the company who manufactured the phone and pending where you live the phone company. My G5 has it.

    • Pedro

      This part of the world has had N for months.

    • enigmaco

      Your not missing much having nothing but errors with my Nexus 6P…

      • Mike

        Care to elaborate? I have been on it since the first 7.0 beta was released with almost no issues. And any issues I had were taken care of in the next update.

        • enigmaco

          bluetooth issues with sync, signal issues that many have experienced. We went away this past weekend and my fiance who has a moto g 3rd gen had no issues with her signal while mine was bouncing all over the place.

  • T4rd

    PureNexus ROM just got updated a couple days ago too. At least this should be an easy dirty flash. Still love my 6P other than the mediocre battery life.

  • Droid 1967

    nexus 6P downloading now.

  • Kevin

    Not seeing anything new on Pixel XL… Yet

    • Ismail Akram

      I hope Pixel don’t hang now

  • DonSerrot

    My 5X got the update and is rebooting right now.

  • Booyabobby

    Does it fix the bluetooth randomly turning off?

    • JaxDreamWeaver

      Not on the 6P. BT cut out not 30 mins after I updated. Can’t even re-enable BT right now without restarting.

  • Jerry Huster

    Downloading now on my Pixel XL

  • MichaelFranz

    Swipe notifications is on 6p

    • infilmity
