Motorola launched Moto Z3 in August last year with Android 8.1 Oreo. Now after more than five months, the smartphone has started receiving Android 9.0 Pie update.
Since the update is rolled out over-the-air, it will be reaching Moto Z3 owners within a week or two. If you don’t get any update notification, you can manually check for the update by going to the Settings > About phone > System update menu and click Download. Once the update is downloaded on your device, you have to reboot your device, post which the Android 9.0 Pie update will be installed.
The update weighs more than 1GB in size, hence, you are advised to download it over a Wi-Fi connection. Motorola has also advised its users to have at least 50% battery charge left on the phone before installing the update. Besides Pie features, the update also brings along the January Security Patch to the device.
The Android Pie update will bring features like adaptive battery, adaptive brightness, navigation gestures, simplified volume controls, revamped split screen, improved DND mode and more. You can know more about the Pie features on Moto Z3 here.
