Google on Monday pushed out a new update that adds some flare to the Pixel C. After issuing the second public beta last month, Google has begun rolling out Android 7.1.2, which brings with it bug fixes, optimizations, and more.
Google’s Pixel C is the real winner of the day. Now, owners of the high-end tablet can enjoy a Pixel-style launcher optimized for the device’s high resolution display. That means Pixel C owners will have to swipe up to access the app drawer, while a weather widget sits in the top right.
Multitasking is also much improved. Rather than scrolling through a rolodex of cards, users are treated to a grid of eight apps. The navigation buttons have also been updated to match what Pixel and Pixel XL owners have been enjoying since last year.
Speaking of the Pixel, Android 7.1.2 also introduces a few changes, including improved fingerprint swipe performance and a fix for Bluetooth connectivity. 9to5Google has a short list of Pixel improvements.
