Those of you who are looking forward to new features and more with this update will be disappointed as Google has stated that this update is an "incremental maintenance release" that focuses on bugfixes, optimizations, and small enhancements for both carriers and users.

Unfortunately, the arrival of Android 7.1.2 Nougat also signals the end for the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices as Google has confirmed that both devices will not be receiving Android 7.1.2, however, they will still receive regular security updates.
