Unlocked Moto G4 Plus handsets are now getting the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update in the United States. The update weighs in at 741MB, and it includes a whole host of significant improvements and new features — including split-screen multitasking.
Prior to being acquired by Lenovo, Motorola was once one of the fastest Android vendors to roll out Google’s latest updates. It’s one of the things that made handsets like the Moto X so popular. Now things have changed, but the wait for Nougat is finally over for owners of the Moto G Plus in the U.S. — assuming you have an unlocked device.
Handsets with the XT1644 model number are now getting their Android 7.0 update over-the-air. It includes features like multi-window mode and inline notification replies, plus improvements to things like Doze for even better battery life in between charges. The update also prepares the Moto G4 Plus for Google Assistant.
“The update is already being rolled out, but might not be available to all users just yet,” explains Android Authority. “It could take a couple of days before Nougat hits all the unlocked Moto G4 Plus smartphones in the country.”
When it’s ready to download on your device, you’ll get a notification to let you know an update is waiting. However, you can also check for it manually from within the system updates menu inside the Settings app. You’ll need to be connected to Wi-Fi to download the release, and you’ll need at least 50 percent battery life to install it.
