Since the device already got Android 6.0 in Canada and India some months back, this update makes the incremental jump to version 6.0.1. The modest bump includes a healthy dose of new emoji, which will surely come in useful for conversation and social media. As well as the colorful icons, you get your usual assortment of bug fixes and performance tweaks, including Google's March security patch for Android. Even if you're not an emoji fan, it would be wise to grab the update if only to ensure your Moto X Play is as secure as possible.
Elsewhere, Motorola has made a couple of adjustments to the camera app, which can now be launched with a simple double-press of the power button. The shutter sound has also been adjusted to make the point-and-shoot experience just that little more pleasurable.
As aforementioned, the update is making its way through cyberspace to Moto X Play devices through Canada and India. If you reside in either location, head to your Settings app and check to see if the OTA has reached you. Bear in mind that updates are usually trickled out slowly, so it may take a few hours or days to finally arrive at your handset.
