Android 7.1.1 Nougat starts rolling out to Moto G4 Play after a 6-month delay

It looks like Motorola has finally kicked off the roll-out of Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for the Moto G4 Play. The last major OS update the smartphone will receive is now available for download to unlocked Moto G4 Play units around the world.

Unlike the Moto G4 and G4 Plus that got a similar update last year, Moto G4 Play owners had to wait several more months to get the benefits of Android Nougat. Some of you might remember that Motorola started to push Android Nougat to the Moto G4 Play back in June, but for some reason, the update was only available to a small percentage of users.

Fast forward six months and Moto G4 Play users from various countries report they have been able to capture the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update. Unfortunately, the smartphone only got the November security patch, but the Moto G4 Play will continue to receive security updates.

In any case, if you really want an Android Oreo-based smartphone, you'll have to switch to a newer device since the Moto G4 Play won't be getting any other major OS update besides this one.
