It's official. Nougat is coming to Motorola.
The Moto Z and Moto Z Force will receive an update globally starting this week. Motorola devices, including the Droid editions in the U.S., will now have the Android Nougat .
The announcement comes after reports came in that some Motorola users received an update in the past few days. This time, the company which is owned by Lenovo, made the update official.
The update will bring the Moto smartphones to Android 7.0 and not 7.1, though. This bit of news will be welcomed more by users who want to enjoy the Daydream mode. If that's the case, users may want to get their hands on a Daydream View to take advantage of this feature.
As such, the update brings the Moto devices into the fold of the only non-Pixel devices that have the Daydream feature. The only other gadget with that ability is the ZTE Axon 7.
The Nougat update will also include the split-screen mode and quick app switching. The update will also support Camera API 2 which is necessary to get applications that can give the user more control of th camera.
The software version of the Nougat is known as NCL25.86-11 and will also add features like new notification settings, bundled notifications, new quick settings toggles, slide out menu in settings, and new emojis, among others.
Those who will take advantage of the Nougat update needs to prepare 1585 MB of space, though. They also need a good internet connection as this may take some time.
The Verge mentions that the update will be released on different times depending on where the user is and what carrier he or she is using. To find out when the upgrade will take effect in a certain country for a certain carrier partner, the user can visit this page.
