Since this is not the first Nougat-based firmware for the Nexus 9 tablets on T-Mobile, the update is tiny, weighing only 52 MB. Even this way, the update comes with a few noticeable changes, such as support for sending GIFs from the keyboard.

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.

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.
