In Android 7.1.2 Nougat update, the reported devices will also feature similar buttons for navigation with circular app icons.

Google has posted both the OTA's and the factory images for the selected Nexus or Pixel devices. Users owning Pixel C and Nexus Player tablets can, however, start receiving the Android 7.1.2 Nougat update from now onward.

We're waiting for more information about the update package from available sources or from the tech giant itself. The most exciting update seems to be composed of some major tweaks relating to the tablet's interface. While this statement might be true for those using the Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones, the group on the likes of Google Pixel C, Nexus 6P, and Nexus 5X will have quite a few new features to take home. As for the Google Pixel C tablet, there's even more stuff to smile about. Additionally, the update has removed the "app drawer" so users will now have to swipe up from screen's bottom to check out the software of their devices. The new battery usage list presents a "Usage alerts" list where Android can list that apps that are draining more battery than usual. The menu accommodates up to eight apps, so this will be enough to grant users instant access to their favorite apps that they have open.
