Good news for the owners of the Moto Z flagship that was released in September! The unlocked version of this phablet is now receiving Android 7.0 Nougat update over the air, and it carries a build number NPL25.86-17-3.
Back in November, the Android 7.0 Nougat update was released to Moto Z (Verizon-exclusive models Moto Z Droid and Z Droid Force), then in December, the firmware was made available to users in India. Now, the update is tolling out to the unlocked version and in order to download it, users who get the notification will click on “Yes, I’m in”, or they can manually check for the update by going to Settings > About Phone > System Updates.
Motorola promised that Android 7.0 Nougat will be available to the unlocked Moto Z in February, and it seems that the company has kept its word. Before downloading the update, users are advised to charge the battery of their device, so there won’t be any problems during the software update. Also, it’s important to connect to a wireless update and to make sure that the internet connection is strong.
Some of the changes that users will receive with this update include multi-window view (two apps will run simultaneously on the same screen), Work Mode (work apps will be turned off when users leave their work place), quick switch between apps (by double tapping on the overview/ recent apps button), improved Doze mode, bundled notifications and many more.
