Google is back with the latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat Beta for the Nexus 6P. We have already seen the 7.1.2 Nougat update for other Google devices including the Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, Pixel C, and the Google Pixel (XL) was released last month. However, the Nexus 6P was left out of the update program. Today, the device is being updated to the latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat with firmware build number NPG05F.
Amid all the exciting news about Google releasing the next Android 8.0 O rumored to named as Oreo, the Android 7.1.2 has made it to all the supported Nexus and Pixel lineup. The firmware NPG05F is being rolled out across the globe but the OTA has not been captured yet and neither is the factory image live for the device. In order to receive the official OTA update, go to Settings> About Phone> Software update and check for an OTA notification. You first need to sign up for the Android Public Beta program listed below.

The update size is 1.29 GB and you can capture the firmware update by opting into the Android Beta Program by Google. Moreover, if your device is rooted and has a TWRP setup, you can still download and flash the OTA update. However, before doing so, make sure you take a Nandroid backup.
