Nexus 6P Android 8.0 Oreo Release (OTA)
Last week, the Nexus 6P Android Oreo update started rolling out to a select group. If you were running the Android O beta on your device you should've received a prompt to install the official version of Android Oreo. The final version is a shade under 1GB.
Its been a little over a week since the start of Google's roll out and the Nexus 6P Android Oreo release still hasn't reached everyone. That should change soon.
When Google first announced the Nexus 6P Android Oreo update it noted that Pixel and Nexus 5X/6P builds had entered carrier testing and that roll outs would begin in the near future.
Google recently posted the Nexus 6P Android 8.0 factory images which means OTAs should start moving out to users around the world. While some of you might get the update today or tomorrow, others won't.
One Canadian carrier, Rogers, claims it will roll the Nexus 6P Android 8.0 Oreo update out on September 11th. Australian carrier Optus has also confirmed plans to roll out a Nexus 6P Android Oreo update.
Google's Over-the-Air roll outs usually take a few weeks to complete. We usually see a small batch of users get the update before its released worldwide so you'll need to remain patient.
