A couple of days back we brought you news that — along with the March security patch — the LG Nexus 5X was getting some much needed performance improvements with the latest OTA software update. As it turns out, the Nexus 6P is subject to similar improvements with its own over-the-air update.

A Nexus community manager at Reddit, GoogleNexusCM, posted news about the update on the popular forum, stating that the update for the Huawei-made Nexus phone will be rolling over the coming days. He also noted that this software refresh brings bug fixes which “will improve overall stability and performance” of the 6P.

The fixes for this build are similar to the ones I mentioned for the 5X. Some of the fixes will help with and address:

  • General device performance
  • DND next alarm disappearing issue
  • Carrier-specific bug fixes
  • Connectivity improvements

I also should mention that the builds mentioned on the developers site are carrier specific, with the majority of carriers worldwide being on MHC19I (5X equivalent – MHC19J).

If the update hasn’t shown up for you yet, hang tight, it should land on your device at some point over the next few days. We don’t imagine the software update will be particularly hefty one, so it shouldn’t take too long for you to download and install once it’s available on your Nexus.
