Motorola has reportedly begun testing Android 7.0 Nougat on Moto G4 Plus. The company is said to be testing the update via its famous ‘Soak Test’ where only a small set of users get the update and if no major issues are reported by these users then the particular update is rolled out to every one.
As of now, the company is reported to be testing the update in Brazil and the update weighs at 953 MB.
For those who are not aware, Android Nougat brings in a bunch of new features including split-screen multi-tasking, more customisable quick settings, better battery life, improved Google keyboard, enhanced notifications and recent applications window. Google Camera has also been updated to v4.2 though we are not sure if the update will make it to other devices as well. Further, Android Nougat brings ‘Double Tap’ on the Recents button to switch between the two most recent apps which comes in very handy at times. Also, following from the Marshmallow, Android Nougat comes with Doze on the go which will get activated even if your Nougat running device is in your pocket.
Motorola has always been very quick to roll out updates and its good to see that even after Lenovo acquisition, the company is holding on to its reputation at least in terms of Android updates.
Earlier this month, the Lenovo owned Motorola revealed the list of Moto devices which will get Android 7.0 Nougat update. Apart from Moto G4 Play, Moto G (4th Gen), Moto G Play (4th Gen), Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen), Moto X Style, Moto X Play, Moto X Force, Droid Turbo 2, Droid Maxx 2, Moto Z, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z Play, Moto Z Play Droid and Nexus 6 are all scheduled to get the update. In fact, Motorola’s Nexus 6 already got the Android 7.0 update and is in line to get the developer preview of Android 7.1.
