We’ve had the Android 6.0.1 update on our radar for some time now and it seems Google has decided today is the day – Google has released the factory images for Android 6.0.1 for the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9 and Nexus Player. While the update inevitably contains the December security update, one of the more anticipated additions are the new emoji that SVP of Android Hiroshi Lockheimer announced would be coming in this update. We also got a sneak peek at all the new emoji if you’re not keen on flashing a new factory image right now.

As with all software updates, you can either wait for the update to roll out to your device – which can take days or weeks depending on where you are – or you can download the factory image from the Google Developers website and flash it yourself. In case this is your first time, flashing a factory image will wipe everything on your device, so make sure to backup everything before you attempt anything – otherwise, you might be better off waiting for the OTA (over-the-air) update.

Are you excited to see the factory images for Android 6.0.1? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
