Android 7.0 gets pushed out for the Moto X Pure Edition in the U.S.
Even as we get closer to the unveiling of Android O (Oreo?) at Google I/O next month, there are still plenty of handsets that have yet to receive the update to Android 7.0 Nougat. One of them, the Moto X Pure Edition from 2015, is in the process of receiving this update right now. When you receive the notification that the update has arrived, you should make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network before beginning the updating process. Additionally, the battery on the handset should be fully charged up before you start installing the new files.

The Android 7.0 update includes the New Moto Actions and the new features and capabilities that are part of Android 7.0. Some of these include the multi-window view, which allows you to view two apps side-by-side. Doze, the feature that shuts down apps (even those running in the background) when your handset is inactive, will now do its thing even when you are on the go. This should extend the battery life of your handset.

Other new features include Data Saver. When enabled, this feature prevents apps running in the background from consuming data. With Android 7.0, you can reply to messages directly from the Notifications feed. In addition, multiple notifications from the same app are listed together to make them easier to find. And Quick Settings can be rearranged to meet your needs.

Check out all of the new features by clicking on the sourcelink. This will call up Motorola's lengthy changelist for the Android 7.0 update that is now on the way to the U.S. version of the Moto X Pure Edition. If you own the phone, keep your eyes peeled for the notification telling you that it has arrived.

The Moto Voice is crap now, just an overlay to Google now and most native commands are gone. Just when Siri and others are starting do what Moto Voice could do way back in 2013, Lenovo has started butchering Motorola

Really??? I just bought a One Plus 3t because I got tired of waiting. Mine was stuck on 6.0 and I couldn't get too many emojis and my Nexus 6 was far ahead. It was ridiculously behind. Too bad... I really wanted to stay with my Moto X Pure because it was so smooth. Bluetooth was unbearable though and it was so spotty with everything I owned.
