The new firmware is now available for Pixel C users, coming with a new launcher, a multitasking menu optimized for the larger screen, and more. However, Google still has to make the official announcement.

Not long ago, Google unveiled a new beta build of the Android 7.1.2 update, revealing that the final release will not bring any noticeable changes. However, it looks like Pixel C users already go the real thing, and it looks like this slate gets quite a few noticeable improvements.

According to 9to5Google, users who are not part of the Android Beta program noticed a solid system update available for install. The update has 340 MB in size and Google did not announce it yet. Its highlights include a multitasking menu that uses the larger screen properly, displaying apps in a grid rather than as large cards. Sadly, only the last eight ones can be accessed.

Next to the improved multitasking menu, Android 7.1.2 Nougat for Pixel C also comes with the Pixel Launcher app and the April security patch. We will probably hear about Android 7.1.2 coming to more devices by the end of this week, so stay tuned.
