Google may have released Android 7.0 Nougat late last year but there are still a lot of devices that have yet to receive this update. OEMs are gradually rolling out the latest Android OS update to some of their devices and Lenovo-owned Motorola is now following through for the unlocked Moto Z Play. Several reports suggest that the Moto Z Play Android 7.0 update is now being rolled out by Motorola.

It was initially believed that the company was going to release this update for the Moto Z Play at some point in March. However, reports are coming in which show that the update is now being rolled out, at least for the unlocked variant of the Moto Z Play.

Those who own the Verizon-branded version of this smartphone, called the Moto Z Play Droid, may have to wait for some time because previous reports suggest that the Android 7.0 Nougat update for this particular variant is currently being tested by the carrier. Once Verizon is done with its tests only then it’s going to send it out for users.

The Moto Z Play Android 7.0 update for the unlocked variant weighs in at just over 1.1GB and brings everything that Google has promised with the Nougat update, including but not limited to new multi-tasking features, an improved version of the Doze mode, overall system and performance improvements and more.
