Moto Z gets Android Update

The mobile is now ready to receive the Android Oreo Update.

India, 5 July 2018 -- Verizon's Droid-branded version of the Moto Z Play from 2016 is finally being graced with the update to Android 8.0 Oreo. This has started rolling out today, more than a month after unlocked units got it (back in May).

The new software arrives as build ODN27.76-12-30-2, and it's a 1.1GB download. As usual the rollout is likely to be going out in phases, so if you haven't seen the update notification yet, you can either be patient for a few more days or manually go to Settings > System update and check.

Oreo brings picture-in-picture mode for supported apps, the Autofill API, adaptive icons, notification channels and badges, smarter text selection, background restrictions on apps, and more. You also get the June 1, 2018 security patch level after installing this release.

Process to do the update manually:- Similar to the Oreo update that landed for the unlocked Moto Z Play in late-May, this brings the Verizon model up to Android 8.0.

Along with that number change, the phone gets picture-in-picture, support for adaptive icons, Google's new emoji style, smart text selection, and a bunch more.

As for the build number, this is being upgraded to ODN27.76-12-30-2.

The over-the-air update is making its way to handsets now, but if you don't feel like waiting, you can always manually check for it by going to Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates.
