The update is around 1MB and can be performed in a matter of seconds.
"This software update will upgrade your Nexus 7 to Android 4.1.1, JellyBean, which improves performance and responsiveness system wide," read Google's message on the update screen for the Nexus 7 tablet.
The update is also meant to improve Google Now speed for fetching information from the internet.
However, it brings no major changes to the user experience. The only differences can be found in the "About" screen where some extra information has been added.
The Google Nexus 7 has quickly become the hottest electronic of the summer, selling out extremely fast in many retail outlets.
Google recently started shipping the device, but multiple retailers have already reported that they are sold out and need to re-stock.
GameStop needed to pull the tablet from its website, and Adorama and Staples are both waiting for additional inventory since the device sold out so quickly.
GameStop has been able to fulfill some of its Nexus 7 orders for customers who agreed to pick it up at one of the company's retail locations. It is now offering more orders on the device that are expected to be fulfilled on August 7.
Adorama, a New York retailer, took to its Twitter account to announce that the Nexus 7 had sold out and that it was shipping its stock based on orders received. The next batch of Google tablets are expected to reach Adorama in the middle of August.
The Google Nexus 7 can also be purchased directly from Google in the Google Play store. The company offers the 8GB model of the device for $199 and the 16GB version for $249. It also promises to deliver the tablet in one to two weeks.
