How long does Google provide updates for Nexus devices?

I have both a Nexus 7 tablet and a Nexus 6 phone. How long can I expect Google to provide Android updates for these devices? One of the main reasons I prefer Nexus phones and tablets is the fact that I can have current, updated versions of Android instead of being stuck with an older version of the OS on an almost new device.
According to Google's page (link below)
"Nexus devices receive:
Android version updates
For at least two years from when the device became available on the Google Store.
Security patches
For the longer of 3 years from availability or 18 months from when the Google Store last sold the device."

Google doesn't guaranty updates for
Nexus 6 after October 2016, and Nexus 7 (2013) after July 2015
