Today, Android is releasing Android 7.1.1 through which Nexus devices will get features like GIF keyboard and emoji that are already present on the Pixel and Pixel XL. This year, Google also created female emoji and now Android users can use emoji of lady doctor or female astronaut with this. The updated devices will also get GIF keyboard which is already available on Pixel. On supported apps like Hangouts, Allo and Messenger, users can directly search for GIFs.
Apart from fun messaging features, Nougat 7.1.1 comes with app shortcuts on the home screen. Double-tap and raise to wake features are also available in these updates that will allow the users to either tap with two fingers on the screen to view alerts or see the lock screen when picking the phone. Last month, these features were released in Canada.
