McAfee Widget not working after Android 7.1.1 update on Nexus 6P

Jump to solution

Greetings

I just had Android 7.1.1 pushed to my Nexus 6P (Huawei).
After the update, my McAfee widget did not return to my “Home screen”.

Anyone else have this issue?

Is there a fix for this?

Will I have to wait until McAfee updates?

Thank you,

Are you signed up for the Android Beta Programme?   I believe 7.0 is the current release.

No, I'm not enrolled in the Beta program.

Here is a note from the Android website.

Today, and over the next several weeks, the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus Player, Pixel C and General Mobile 4G (Android One) will get an over the air (OTA) software update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Any devices enrolled in the Android Beta Program will also receive this final version.

See this link.  "https://blog.google/products/android/sweet-update-nougat-android-711/"

I hope that McAfee will have an update soon to fix this issue. I really like that that little widget.

I haven't seen any others post about this.

Thanks.

Could you attempt to again? I have not seen anything untoward on my end, other than a incomplete post? This platform has been known to cause issues from time to time, for even us Mods.

Perhaps try logging out and back in again.
