If you are the owner of the Moto X4 Android One, you might be interested to learn that it seems that the Android 8.0 Oreo update is now rolling out to the handset. Note that this is for the Android One version of the phone, which means that if you purchased the other version that comes with a slightly tweaked version of Android, you’ll probably have to wait for the update.

However Motorola did previously confirm that the Moto X4 (and other Motorola handsets) will receive Android 8.0 Oreo, so it was really only a matter of time. The update is expected to bring about the usual changes that one might expect from the Android 8.0 Oreo update. The update also contains the usual Android security updates, so it could be worth checking out as well.

As it stands Android 8.0 Oreo still represents a fraction of total Android installs. Last we checked, which was earlier this month, Oreo only represented 0.5% of Android devices, and that older updates like those from 2-3 years ago still held a majority share. That being said, Google has been working on ways to try and reduce Android fragmentation, such as through Project Treble.

Also to their credit, we’re starting to see more OEMs try to push out updates in a more timely manner.
