Google few weeks back started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for compatible Nexus devices. The Android Nougat update was rolled out to the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C tablet, and Android One General Mobile GM 4G devices gradually. The list of devices however missed out the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE devices giving an impression that they may miss out on Android N update altogether.

Google has now confirmed that both the Motorola Google Nexus 6 and HTC Google Nexus 9 will receive the final Android 7.0 Nougat update "in the coming weeks." The company confirmed the details to Android Police without giving an exact timeline for the update. Unfortunately, Google has so far also not revealed the reasons for the delay of the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the devices. For those users who can't wait for the official rollout of Android 7.0 Nougat can register for the Android N Developer Preview to experience Nougat.

To refresh, the final Android 7.0 Nougat build brings a host of improvements such as multi-window support, enhanced notifications, revamped doze, and number blocking. Google has already released the final build to OEMs which means they can start building their skins on top of Android 7.0 Nougat and release it soon to their customers.

Dave Burke, Engineering VP, during official Android 7.0 Nougat release had announced that Google has moved Nougat into a new regular maintenance schedule for the coming quarters. Burke had added that the first Nougat maintenance release was already in the works.
