Google Nexus 6: This Is Worse Than Goodbye!
Google works in mysterious ways. That’s the only explanation that one could come up with at the moment to explain what’s happening to the Nexus 6. Not only has Google refused to offer the complete the cycle of Nougat updates for the device, the company has taken its old flagship backwards.
Rather than stop at Android 7.1.1, which is already perplexing enough for users, Google has decided to downgrade the Nexus 6 to Android 7.0 because of a bug on 7.1.1 that has broken Android Pay for many users.
That’s not a proper reason at all. Companies don’t fix bugs by downgrading a device’s software, they do it by sending out newer patches to deal with the problems brought upon by their own updates.
That, however, relies on the assumption that Google is completely done with the Nexus 6, that it’s not going to even look at the device anymore. So to be fair, we’ll assume for now that the folks at Mountain View are working on a fix for the Android 7.1.1 bug that has broken Android Pay.
Do you think that Google is content with leaving the Nexus 6 on Android 7.0 or is a fix being formulated so that users would be able to officially get back on Android 7.1.1?
