With the new Android 7.0 Nougat slowly rolling out, more devices are getting Google’s latest OS. It’s time for Motorola devices to celebrate as Google has pushed an OTA update with Nougat for a handful of Moto devices including the Moto Z, Moto X Play, Moto Z Force, Moto E and others.
The move of implementing the latest software on older devices as well might give Motorola an edge in the market as people might appreciate the fact that older devices provide Android Nougat and they don’t have to spend big money on the newest flashiest smartphone released just for the software.
If we are to believe to what IBT (International Business Times) is saying, we could see the Nougat update for devices like Moto X Style, Moto X Play or Moto X Force as early as next month, while the release for models such as Moto Z Force and Z Force Droid, Moto Z Play and Moto Z could arrive earlier than that.
Even older devices such as the Moto G line of smartphones, specifically the Moto G, G Play and G Plus, as well as the Moto X Play, Moto X-Force, Moto Z and Z Droid will be getting the newest Android firmware.
Unfortunately for G3 and Moto E3 users, it doesn’t look like their devices will be getting the update, primarily due to the fact that they both experienced difficulties revolving around compatibility. Earlier test trials through a Nougat APK file had the devices become unresponsive therefore incapable of running the new Android OS.
For those with Motorola devices that are on the compatibility green light list, Google has prepared a lot of features such as support for VR, which is growing rapidly in popularity right now, the Quick Switch function and support for multi window processing among others.
