Google updates Nexus program policy
The Nexus products that have been released this year have been received with mix reviews. However, even though not everyone is satisfied, you have to admit that the Nexus program has created some good and strong devices to help Android flourish in the long term.
Even though some say the Google Nexus 6 is a little too big, the gadget has been called extremely carrier friendly and is being sold on all four major carriers in America – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile as well as US Cellular.
Now, Google has added a new update to the support page of the Nexus/GPE device software update policies that reads:
Once an update is available, it can take up to two weeks for it to reach your device. Based on your carrier, it may take longer than two weeks after release to get an update.”
We’re not quite sure about the implications that the change will have. Google might just be taking a more careful direction as past experiences with carriers haven’t been too enjoyable or positive. It might just a contingency plan the company has to fall back on if a carrier decides not to approve an update or takes forever to do so.
So even if carriers are late in sending updates to the Nexus products, you can bet that Google will ensure users can manually update their Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 LTE through various ways such as OTA links and factory images.
If you still aren’t too sure of whether you’d like to purchase a Nexus gadget such as the Nexus 6 from a carrier, you can always get the unlocked Nexus 6!
