In the past, Android updates have been quite problematic. We all know how much it took for an update to reach all devices. Right now things aren’t perfect, but we can notice an improvement. Android updates reach devices faster than they did before, and this is something that we must appreciate.
This time, the Android Pie update reached a new smartphone. More precisely, we talk about the Motorola Moto Z3 Play. The smartphone was launched back in June, last year. The Motorola Moto Z3 Play comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC and a 6″, 2160 x 1080, 18:9 AMOLED display.
At the moment, the update has become available on phones in the United States. The update comes with all the features of Android Pie, including a redesigned recent apps menu, a virtual screenshot key, new emoji, adaptive brightness and battery, redesigned navigation system and more.
Android Oreo for the Moto G4 Plus
The Motorola Moto Z3 is not the only Motorola phone that gets a new Android update. The Moto G4 Plus is an older Motorola device that it was announced back in 2016. The phone came with Android Marshmallow out of the box, but it also received the Android Nougat update later on.
Now it appears that the Moto Z3 Play is receiving its third Android update. Android 8.1 Oreo has been released for the smartphone. More than a year has passed since the announcement for Android Oreo, so we must observe that this update took time.
It appears that Motorola is to blame for this delay. There have been some issues, including update promises that were hardly kept by the company. However, better late than never.
