After beginning the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update rollout for the flagship Moto Z, Lenovo-owned Motorola has now started pushing out the same update for Moto Z Play units in India. The final update arrives after three soak tests, the first of which was pushed out in June. Since the update is in the early rollout phase currently, most of you may not see the update on your handsets right away. It usually takes a day or two for the update rollout to pick up pace, so you will need to be a little more patient.
Even though it isn’t a major upgrade, the OTA update is quite hefty in terms of size at 1GB. It arrives as build version NPNS26.118-22 for the Moto Z Play. Key changes include new multitasking features, more efficient notification controls, improved data saver and battery features, Moto Mods version 2.0, app shortcuts, and more. Once the update is done installing, you will also notice that the Google Duo video calling app has been added with this update. Security is improved as well, thanks to the update including the Android security patches dated July 1, 2017.
The Moto X Play too is expected to receive the same update, although owners of the smartphone will probably need to wait a few more weeks for the update to begin rolling out. If you own a Moto Z Play, you can check for the update manually by heading over to the Settings Menu. In case the update is available for your device, do make sure that you connect to a Wi-Fi network before downloading the OTA update. In addition to that, you should also make sure your smartphone’s battery is sufficiently charged before you proceed to install the update. In case it is running low on battery, connect it to the charger and wait until the battery has been charged at least until the 60% mark.
