Dave Burke, VP of Engineering at Google;
The next maintenance release for Android Nougat — 7.1.2 — is just around the corner! To get the recipe just right, starting today, we’re rolling out a public beta to eligible devices that are enrolled in the Android Beta Program, including Pixel and Pixel XL, Nexus 5X, Nexus Player, and Pixel C devices. We’re also preparing an update for Nexus 6P that we expect to release soon.
Android 7.1.2 is an incremental maintenance release focused on refinements, so it includes a number of bugfixes and optimizations, along with a small number of enhancements for carriers and users.
You can apply for the Android Beta Program here.

Last month, Samsung ended its Galaxy Beta Program for beta builds of Android 7.0 Nougat for both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Since things are all set for launch, some users are already reporting to have the official update.
