    Has anyone received the 7.1.1 update already on the N6 as OTA?

    I don't think he update is available yet for the nexus 6. The system image is not up yet on Google's developer webpage.

    The system image for 7.0 is available. You can sideload that. I'm enjoying that at the moment.

    I don't think 7.1.1 will come to Nexus 6. Custom ROMs can provide that if you want it.

    7.0 is very good on my rooted phone, so currently I don't see a need for ROMs, though I did try a few out.

    Google already said the 7.1.1 update is coming. The Nexus 6 was listed when they announced it. It just isn't available yet.

    Very True!

    I have seen that statement in several Android Tech articles, and also several of my friends have mentioned that to me also.

    I bet that the problems like the 6P shutoff are the reason Google is none too quick to update phones as of late. Heck, they just balked at fixing the Pixel audio issue! That's a new phone!!

    It's pretty obvious now that they'd rather not fix corner case issues (especially on older phones) and the fewer updated handsets the better the chances they'll be able to leave things broken.

    At least they're finding out what it's like being the OEM of record instead of the misguided, hapless customer of a thoughtless manufacturer. They also seem to be having a tough time realizing that their new customer base isn't about to root and mod a phone to work around any lame software/hardware decisions they may have made.

    If Google hadn't killed off the Nexus line, I might've been able to work up a shred of sympathy for them. But I'm tapped.

    Oh, I have zero sympathy too. If they'll give us a beta, it makes no sense to hold back the final (unless the final is completely unready).

    Yeah, but I wouldn't expect to see it as an OTA from any carrier until mid-February--unless Sprint just gives it a pro forma looksee and okays it. Most of them--like the hot pink mess I deal with--don't even appear to be pushing out the Nougat security updates for the N6.

    Still, I appreciate the confirmation that a full factory image will be available soon.

    Great news! That means I can keep my Nexus 6 until Google stops the monthly update (Dec 2017)

    You can keep even after that. Custom ROMs will ensure that the Nexus 6 survive after that.

    Android pay will have to be sacrificed though.

    True but my days of nightly flashes are over.

    Hopefully Lineage OS, the replacement for CyanogenMod, gets it all together to continue nightlies.
    I am running the CM 14.1 12/25 nightly and it is stable to be able to wait.
    I thought about reverting to stock for the official 7.1.1 update but I will probably just keep what I got.
    I have the Pixel Android Assistant working on mine so that is a plus.

    I had given up on it getting that update.

    Glad it's getting the update too

    Still in 2 minds whether to get another N6P though TBH

    I love the N6, but mines starting to become a little laggy and the battery isn't as good as it used to be and I'm not a power-user either!

    The only 'plus' for getting an N6P for me, is the fingerprint sensor and the aluminium body really... For what I use my mobiles for, the 'newer' internals on the N6P won't give me any extra over my N6 IMO!

    Because they are slow to get updates out. 7.0 Came out how many months ago and it's still not on my device!

    Verizon approved Nougat in October or November and also have approved the current build with the December security patch. Nexus 6 ota's can get screwed up if you swapped networks or had a build that was never approved by your network. I've heard of some folks having issues where they just stopped. I guess what I'm saying is I don't think Verizon is delaying your update. See below for Verizon's current approval for N6 OTA.

    Is this a Verizon issue or Google issue?

    As of this post, 7.0.0 (NBD91U, Dec 2016) is the latest.

    Which would apply to every N6 enrolled in the nougat beta program since none of the beta builds went through carrier testing. Do you have a source for this claim about unapproved builds?

    I'm not saying I don't have the latest update, I don't have 7.0 at all. Which according to that link you posted, was first released in October.

    I have a Verizon Nexus that I bought directly from them and it has never been on another network.
