Android Nougat update comes to the Moto M
As it turns out, the Moto M has just started to receive an update that takes the device from Android 6.0 to Android 7.0. That's Nougat, everyone. And to ensure that you receive the update with your phone intact and not bricked, you need to follow some standard rules. Once the update arrives on your phone, make sure that it is connected to a Wi-Fi network, or a strong cellular signal. At the same time, check the battery on your phone. You want it to be fully charged. Having your handset shut off in the middle of a software update is inviting disaster.
Android 7.0 comes with features such as the ability to respond to messages from inside the notification. You can also find some extra battery life here and there thanks to the improved Doze, which closes the apps running in the background when the phone has been inactive for some time. Wonder why you don't use as much battery life overnight if you keep your phone on? Doze is why. With multi-window, you can run two apps on the screen simultaneously. And Unicode 9 gives you enough relevant and fresh emoji to use with your messages.
The update not only allows the Moto M to run on Android 7.0, it also adds Google's video chatting app Duo to the handset.
