Google Nexus 9 tablets on T-Mobile get Android 7.1.1
Google Nexus 9 has been around for more than two years, but since its hardware allows it, this slate has just received Android 7.1.1 Nougat on T-Mobile. This 8.9-inch tablet is powered by a Tegra K1 SoC and was released with Android 5.0 Lollipop on board.
The last firmware update for this tablet was Android 7.0 Nougat, so the new software package is not large at all. However, the 52 MB firmware even comes with a few new features, the highlights being app shortcuts directly from the home screen and support for GIFs from the keyboard on apps such as Google Messenger, Hangouts, or Allo.
In addition to the above, Android 7.1.1 Nougat also comes with a new set of emojis and a lot of redesigned old ones, as well as this month's security patches and bug fixes. The OTA update on T-Mobile rolls out in stages, so those who did not get the notification yet can go to Settings > About Device > Software Update and check for it.
