[Update: Official downloads] The September Oreo update broke SafetyNet and Android Pay for some Nexus 6Ps, but there’s a fix

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Update-woes continue. A recent OTA (OPR6.170623.017) for the Nexus 6P appears to have broken SafetyNet and, subsequently, things like Android Pay. Thankfully, there's a fix. All you need to do is update to a slightly newer build (OPR6.170623.019), and we've even got a link if you'd rather not wait. 

The problem was reported on Google's Product Forums, and just yesterday Google promised to resolve the issue with a corrected OTA.

Google is offering Nexus 6P owners a Pixel XL as a warranty replacement

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

The Nexus 6P is one of those phones that had high initial quality, but it hasn't withstood the test of time very well. This phone has been plagued by battery issues that cause it to randomly shut off. Those who bought their phones from the Google Store have reported success not only with getting the phone replaced, but replaced with a Pixel XL.

There have been sporadic reports for months of 6P owners getting Pixels back from Google, but now it seems like a near certainty in some places.

Tutorial: How to enable Android Oreo’s “Turn on WiFi Automatically” feature on Nexus 5X/6P

Saturday, September 9th, 2017

One of Android Oreo's new features is the ability to automatically turn Wi-Fi back on when you're near a saved network. Essentially, Android will keep track of where each network is located, and will use location services to only turn on Wi-Fi when you're in range. The feature was available for all devices on the Android O Developer Previews, but was disabled in the final release for the Nexus 5X and 6P.

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

Android 8.0 Oreo made its official debut a little over a week ago, but since then, only devices enrolled in the Android Beta Program have received an official OTA to 8.0. Verizon Pixel phones began receiving the official version earlier today, but it looks like other devices haven't been as fortunate. Luckily, Google has just uploaded factory images and OTAs for Nexus and Pixel devices to their respective pages.

Users are reporting Bluetooth issues in Android Oreo and Google wants more feedback

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Nougat had its fair share of Bluetooth issues, particularly on Google's Pixel devices, but you'd be forgiven for hoping that Oreo would avoid similar problems. Sadly, it seems that Pixel and Nexus owners are experiencing a number of different issues after installing the final version of Android 8.0, and Google is trying to gather user feedback in order to address the matter.

Google posted on both the Pixel and Nexus forums asking for information but didn't elaborate on exactly what kind of bugs it was expecting to hear about.

Android 8.0 OTAs are starting to roll out to devices in the beta program

Monday, August 21st, 2017

Google released final system images of Android 8.o earlier today, and now OTAs are starting to roll out. Although, I'm placing strong emphasis on "starting." The first wave of OTAs are targeting devices in the Android beta program, but already there have been reports of failed installations on certain phones. That's a Google launch for you.

Like last year, you can still join the beta program for Android O today.
