The update is already hitting Pixel devices, along with the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel C and Nexus Player, and brings the devices up to build NPG47I. It was announced on Google+ by Google’s Orrin Hancock.

According to numerous reports, the Nexus 6P gains the popular “swipe-down-for-notifications” shortcut with the new version, which came to the Nexus 5X in a previous update.
