Moto Z Play Now Receiving Upgrade to Android 7.1.1 Nougat

After being previously confirmed by Moto, the Z Play has begun receiving a software update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. This comes before either the standard Z or Z Force could get the new software, leaving these two handsets stuck on 7.0 for now.


It’s unclear which models are getting Android 7.1.1 whether they be unlocked or Droid editions, but Android Headlines notes regardless, the Z Play is getting features like App Shortcuts, more emoji, and improved battery life (y’know, as if you need that on the Z Play). It also looks like the handset is receiving the June 1, 2017 security patch which has yet to roll out to Google’s own devices, leading to the conclusion that this software update is rolling out a bit too early.

To check and see if you’ve received the new software, head to Settings > About phone > Software Updates. Until the June 1st security patch rolls out officially to other devices, don’t expect to see Android 7.1.1 hit your Z Play.
