Back in March 2017, Google has pushed a downgrade from Android 7.1.1 to Android 7.0 for its Nexus 6 handsets. The big search engine company did this because the new version of the operating system has messed up with the Android Pay.
Well, it seems that the Android 7.1.1 Update for the Nexus 6 is now available once again and it doesn’t have the Android Pay issue anymore. We have to mention that the new Android 7.1.1 OTA update has a file size of 367.9B and it comes with performance enhancements, fixes to critical bugs and stability improvements. Since the file size is so large, we suggest you to download it only when you are connected to a Wi-Fi network in order to avoid wasting your mobile data.
However, keep in mind that you will need to have the Android 7.0 build installed on your Nexus 6 in order to successfully install the latest 7.1.1 update that’s currently being rolled by the company. This is an OTA update, meaning that some users might receive it sooner than others.
HINT: After installing the new Android 7.1.1 OTA update on your Nexus, you will be asked to restart the device to apply the patch.
