You happen to be happy with your Moto G4 Plus from Motorola, but one thing that has been egging you for quite some time now -- the lack of an Android .70 Nougat update. Well, it seems that the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Moto G4 Plus has been a long time in coming, and at long last it seems to have arrived for Moto G4 Plus owners in the US. Better late than never is the mantra here, and for Moto G4 Plus owners, this is certainly an event that is well worth looking forward to.
It has been reported that Republic Wireless introduced an Android 7.0 Nougat soak test for the Moto G4 Plus some weeks back, and this time around, Motorola themselves have taken up the responsibility to introduce the Android 7.0 Nougat update to the unlocked Moto G4 Plus (XT1644) smartphones that are present all over in the US.
Do take note that this particular Android 7.0 Nougat update would tip the scales at 741MB, so ensure that there is more than enough storage space on your device before proceeding with the download. One should never throw caution to the wind as well with each software or firmware update, meticulously performing a data backup of all important information before proceeding. Of course, it also helps if you have more than half of the battery life available on your Moto G4 Plus prior to proceeding, although it would not hurt to have it plugged in while performing the update. Last but not least? Make sure that you download the update via a stable Wi-Fi connection, otherwise it would just be a waste of your data quota in your wireless plan.
The Android 7.0 Nougat update will certainly bring with it a slew of new capabilities and functions, where the least among them would be inline notification replies, a new multi-window mode that would bring about massive improvements to multi-tasking fans, better Doze performance that ought to help see a longer battery life for even the most avid smartphone user, as well as the ease and convenience of a new one-handed mode. This will be an OTA (Over The Air) update that is making its way out, so do not be surprised if you are not on the receiving end of it right away. Alternatively, some folks who are impatient and would like to “force” the Moto G4 Plus’ hand can always head to Settings > About Phone > System Update and perform a manual check.
Of course, some folks might want to look forward to the Moto G5 Plus which was revealed at Mobile World Congress earlier this February in Barcelona, Spain. That smartphone is available for pre-order at the moment, and by all means and purposes, it ought to arrive with Android 7.0 Nougat in tow without a doubt. Still, it is nice to see Motorola cater to owners of their older devices without ignoring their needs and wants. Are you happy with the Android 7.0 Nougat update on your Moto G4 Plus? Motorola's official US support page has not been updated accordingly just yet though.
