The December Nexus 6P Android 8.1 Oreo update is now available and may be the last update for the old flagship from Google.
Google’s most recent update is the December Android 8.1 security build, the twelfth security release since Android 8.1 Oreo was released in December 2017.
The December update for the Nexus 6P is only a small upgrade of a few megabytes, but it can have a big impact on your device. Most of you won’t see much change from the previous Android 8.1 version, but some of you will.
The latest Android 8.1 build doesn’t come with a long list of bug fixes for the aging legacy flagship, but the new build always has a chance to fix random bugs or performance issues. There is also a high probability that it will harm the performance of your device.
