When Google started shipping the Nougat in its Pixel devices, it didn’t take long for Lenovo, now the owner of Motorola, to follow suit. On the 20th of October, reports circulated that the company had begun soak testing the Moto G4 Plus Nougat update in Brazil. Several days after, the company then officially announced in its India website that it has released the Android 7.0 update for both its Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus smartphones. The devices are, as a matter of fact, the first non-Nexus smartphones to get the Nougat update. Along with Lenovo’s announcement are the details about the changes and features that the update to Nougat brings along.
How to update your Motorola phone to Android Nougat?
The Android 7.0 update should reach your Moto G4 or G4 Plus smartphone wirelessly and automatically. However, if it is not hitting your phone yet, try checking for the update manually.
To do so, just go to your phone’s Setting. Scroll down and tap About Phone. After which, select Software Updates. This will then download the latest Android version to your phone.
Other Moto Handsets Also Getting the Update
Aside from the G4 and G4 Plus, reports have been circulating that the Android 7.0 will also hit many other Moto devices. Just recently, the company has announced that 15 Moto models will get the update before the years ends. And going by the model names, it appears that devices must be at least a year old in order to be eligible for the update. Below is the complete list. Check out if your phone is among them.
- Moto G4 Plus
- Moto G4 Play
- Moto G (4th Gen)
- Moto X Play
- Moto X Pure Edition

How about the Moto E3 Power?
There’s been some speculations that the E3 is also going to get the update, but so far there hasn’t been any pronouncement from Lenovo regarding Android Nougat update for the devices. And it isn’t likely to be considered so because Moto E3 Power does not meet the minimum one-year requirement for the roll-out.
