Moto X Style soak test in Brazil means Android 7.0 is on the way

Moto X Style soak test in Brazil means Android 7.0 is on the way
The Moto X Style was launched on September 1st, 2015. Coming to market with Android 5.1 Lollypop pre-installed, eventually the Moto X Style received the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. And now, some Moto X Style users in Brazil are receiving the soak test for Android 7.0 Nougat. To participate, Moto X Style users and their phone must be registered with the Motorola Feedback Network.

The soak test allows a brave group of Moto X Style users to receive the update in advance. By seeding the update to Feedback Network members, the latter can pass along to Motorola any feedback that can improve the quality of the software. The update weighs in at 1.3GB and includes the helpful one-handed mode. This shrinks the size of the active screen and the keyboard, in order to allow one hand usage of certain applications.

Android 7.0 includes a new and enhanced version of Doze, which allows apps to be shit down in the background. There is also the Multi-Window mode that allows users to run two apps together on the screen, side by side. The latest version of Unicode is included, which means that the latest emoji are available. The update also brings customizable quick settings and new notification capabilities.

Speaking of which, once the notification arrives on the phone alerting you that the update is available, make sure that you are on a Wi-Fi network before you begin the updating process. You should also make sure that the battery on the phone is completely charged before downloading the new files.
