At long last, Motorola has started rolling out the long-awaited Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for the less powerful variant of its soon-to-be former flagship smartphone, the Moto Z Play.
In addition to all of the features included in the latest build of the Android operating system, the upgrade transports compatibility for Moto Mods, and a slew of bug fixes and stability improvements.
Don’t expect to power on your Moto Z Play and install the firmware today, though. To cope with the sheer amount of devices it has to reach, Motorola’s distributing the OTA in stages.
Fortunately, there’s a quick and easy way to see if it’s ready for your device. Just open up Settings, tap About Device, followed by Software Update, then press Check for Updates.
Motorola’s announcing a new smartphone today
On a related note, Motorola revealed on Wednesday that it will take the wraps off a “bold” new smartphone at some point today. All signs point towards it being either the Moto Z2 Play (yes, the successor to the Moto Z Play) or the Moto G5S.
Be sure to keep checking back to find out exactly what the firm has up its sleeve.
