Some Android manufacturers like to make a big deal when they release a major OS update for their devices. Motorola doesn’t really do that. It rolls out the updates quietly and just confirms their impending arrival by uploading the changelog on its official support website. It has now done that for the Moto G6.


The company reportedly rolled out Android 9 Pie for the Moto G6 Plus in Brazil just a few weeks ago. The Moto Z3 has received it as well. It’s now the Moto G6’s turn. Motorola has put up an Android 9.0 changelog for the device on its support website.

The Android 9.0 Pie update for the Moto G6 brings the January security patch in addition to all of the features that one can expect in a Pie update. These include adaptive battery which prioritizes battery power on the most frequently used apps, adaptive brightness which automatically adjusts display brightness to users’ activities, improved audio controls, other user interface changes, and more.

It normally takes the update a couple of days to start rolling out once the changelog is posted on the website. Users should expect to get the over-the-air update notification on their handsets in the coming days. They can also try manually pulling it from Motorola’s servers by going to the System updates menu in the Settings app and tapping on Download and install.
