After months of delays sorting out bugs and upgrade issues, the Android Nougat 7.1.1 update has finally been released by Google for the Nexus 6. The original update for the November 2014 flagship phone almost immediately caused issues for those who upgraded from Nougat 7.0. Issues with the original update back in March dealt with Android Pay, as in, it completely broke. Nexus 6 owners were not able to use the tap-to-pay service if they upgraded to Nougat 7.1.1.
To address the issue, Google actually reverted the devices back to Android Nougat 7.0 which sorted out the Android Pay problem but left “Shamu” owners out of luck on the latest & greatest features of Nougat 7.1.1.
