Moto G6 Play finally receiving Android 9.0 Pie update in the US

Moto G6 Play finally receiving Android 9.0 Pie update in the US
Motorola kicked off the rollout of Moto G6 Play Android 9.0 Pie a few months ago, but the update made its way to countries like Brazil and India first. Now it has finally reached US shores, as Motorola has just published the official changelog of the update on its support page.

Spotted by AndroidSoul, the update contains some unique Motorola improvements, as well as the April security patch. New features like adaptive battery and brightness, rotation key, dual SIM settings, and quick settings improvements are included too.

There are several performance changes implemented in the update, including Bluetooth enhancements, Wi-Fi optimization, and stability improvements. As far as security goes, Motorola mentions data encryption, security enhancements and some other changes that will make the Moto G6 Play more secure than ever.

In order to download and install the update, make sure that your phone's battery is at least 50% charged and that it's connected to a Wi-Fi network. If you did not receive a notification message for the update, head to Settings / System / System updated / Download and install.

Keep in mind that Motorola usually deploys these Android updates in waves, so it might not be available to everyone at the same time. If Android 9.0 Pie doesn't show on your Moto G6 Play today, give it a few days and try again.
