Google’s Android M update will be available in developer preview mode starting with Thursday, but not all existing Nexus device owners will be able to install it. After unveiling the main features of the new operating system, Google revealed that Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player owners will be able to try out Android M Developer Preview later today. However, older devices such as the two Nexus 7 tablet models or the Nexus 10 will not get Android M today.
