The Android 7.0 Nougat operating system has been launched back in August 22, but not too many devices received the update. The ones that received the update are Google’s own Nexus and Pixel devices, and only a few others more. Looking at Play Store statistics we can see that only 0.3% of Android devices have the new Nougat operating system. Even if it seems like the new OS is hard to get, some Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Droid Force owners reported that they already received the OS update.
It seems that not all the owners of Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Droid Force got it, only the ones that were using Verizon, but since this proves the Android 7.0 Nougat OS is compatible with the devices we can expect all other Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Droid Force devices to receive the update soon enough.
The Nougat version sent to Moto Z owners is the Android 7.0 Nougat, this means that it doesn’t include the November update. The November update brought some bug fixes and the first security patch. Google didn’t reveal what security breaches they were fixing with the patch so they don’t compromise the security of other Android 7.0 Nougat OS operated devices. After updating their operating system, Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Droid Force users will be able to use features such as Daydream mode and Camera API 2 support that allows the user to install applications to optimize the camera.
The download was sent over the air (OTA), meaning that users got the update only using a Wi-Fi connection and they weren’t required to download any extra files. If you want to update your Motorola device keep in mind that the update is 1586 MB big and you need extra space and a strong connection on your phone. Also try to keep the battery charged at least 70% when initiating the update.
