Earlier today we reported that some Nexus 6 owners were reporting that their handsets were getting downgraded from Android 7.1.1 to Android 7.0. At that time Google did not make any kind of comment or offer an explanation as to why this was the case, but it was presumed that maybe it had something to do with the original update.
For those who are wondering about Google’s actions, a community manager has recently posted onto Reddit confirming that the downgrade is indeed happening. The post reads, “There was a recent OTA update for Android 7.0 that is causing confusion for some Nexus 6 users. For those of you that want to guarantee future OTA updates, you will need to get back on the 7.0 supported track. If you are experiencing issues after accepting the 7.0 update, please factory reset your device to help resolve any problems.”
