android-app-shortcutsHeads up Pixel and Nexus devices owners, it seems that you’re in for a bit of a sweet treat today and in the coming weeks because Google has announced that starting from today, they have begun rolling out the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to their Pixel and Nexus device lineup, so you’ll want to keep an eye out for it.

According to Google’s announcement, “Today, and over the next several weeks, the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus Player, Pixel C and General Mobile 4G (Android One) will get an over the air (OTA) software update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Any devices enrolled in the Android Beta Program will also receive this final version.”

However as Google notes, it will happen over the course of the next few weeks so if you don’t see the update available for you today, not to worry as it should eventually find its way to you. The update will introduce a bunch of new emojis that will introduce female emojis in jobs that were previously only available for male emojis, and vice versa.

There are also app shortcuts which according to Google, “Launch actions on your favorite apps, such as Twitter or Google Maps, by simply long pressing the app icon. Jump directly into an existing conversation on Google Messenger or start an entirely new one – all straight from the app icon.”
