    You can download the Android 7.1.1 Developer Preview for your Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, or Pixel C right now! You can actually try out the latest version of Android ahead of the Pixel and Pixel XL which each ship with Android 7.1! This is the beauty of the Nexus program that has been done away with. Being able to run the latest version of Android first is the main draw for both Pixel and Nexus devices.

    If you are currently on a developer preview build you should be able to grab this update Over The Air. If you aren't you can sign up for the Beta Program here. Google has also provided both OTA.zip files you can flash in recovery and full stock images that can be flashed manually. Head to the links below to download the files needed.

    Same issue as Mustang here, so far.

    The home screen shortcuts are great. Can't believe it took Apple doing their peek thing for Android to better utilize the long press on the home screen, but it's a welcome addition and I'm looking forward to other developers adding functionality there.

    Extra Quick Toggle on the Notification shade before you pull it down is nice as well.

    New camera "Moves" are handy. The camera app also had an update and seems to launch and work faster than before.

    Overall, I'm still disappointed that Assistant didn't come with this build, but I'm hoping we'll see it before or by the time it's released as a public, stable build.

    Can't believe they broke Always Listening in the Google app though. I toggle it back on and it stays on for just a second or 2 and then shuts off again. :(

    Not any worse though. Mine seems to be on par with what I've been getting lately.

    I've been running it a few days as well now. Not really having any issues that haven't been mentioned.

    I didn't realize it included the new shortcuts until just now, doh! That's pretty cool.

    Anyone having issues with the phone shutting down at weird points? As if the battery were dying? I had it shut down today at a little below 50% and before that it's been around 15%.

    Nothing like that here. I did do an fdr not long before the update, but haven't done one since.

    Every once in a while, I'll have weird battery drain again, but for the most part, doze has been wonderful again.

    Haven't had mine shut down unexpectedly, but I've been restarting it like every other day or so at bed time.

    Since my cache clear it seems fine. But I have to say that the doze is no where as what it is on the Pixel. The doze alone in what had me consider buying it.
