This minor update for the Pixel and Pixel XL also brings a few new features to older devices, including the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel C, and more. The usual optimizations and bug fixes are also present.

As it usually happens with new Android updates, the Nexus devices are the first ones to get the new firmware. Although many flagships still have to receive Android 7.0 Nougat, the Pixel and Pixel XL continue to lead the pack and are already moving all the way up to Android 7.1.1, next to some of their older siblings.

According to the official Android Developers Blog, "Android 7.1.1 is an incremental release that builds on the features already available on Pixel and Pixel XL devices, adding a handful of new features for consumers as well as optimizations and bug fixes on top of the base Android 7.1 platform (API level 25)."

In addition to the two Pixel handsets that launched with Android 7.1 Nougat already installed, the list of devices that receive the update includes the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, and Pixel C. The Pixel and Pixel XL on Verizon and other carriers also get a December update. While these two flagships do not get any significant features added, the older devices mentioned earlier now get stickers and animated GIFs for keyboard apps, circular icon support, and a few other enhancements.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
