While other Nexus devices have been on Android 7.1.1 for some time, the Nexus 6 has been left behind. It has gotten security updates, but not the latest and greatest version of Android.
Fortunately, the wait is now over. Google has posted both the factory image and the OTA image for the Nexus 6. You can now manually flash your device to Android 7.1.1. If you’re not keen on flashing, the over the air rollout should start soon as well. Though it’s late, we’re glad that Google hasn’t abandoned the aging Nexus 6.
