Google Pixel

Android 7.1 is on the Google Pixel and the Android Beta Program can install the Developer Preview on the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixel C right now. But that means most phones aren't running it, and most of us can't play with it. We've talked about the highlights — support for round icons, image keyboards (emojis FTW) and app shortcuts — but for folks curious about everything that's new in 7.1 Nougat or want to see examples, Google's Android Developer team has you covered.

With great animations and screen overlays, we can all see app shortcuts in action, how round icons are created on the launchers that support them and see the new enhanced wallpaper gallery. We even get to learn a little about how these things work.

Some of the language in the five-minute video is geared towards developers (this is the Android Developer channel after all) but anyone can get a good feel on changes coming when your phone gets updated, or see some things your phone can do now if you're running Android 7.1. Give it a watch!
