Motorola Moto X and Motorola Moto G get updated boot screens for the holidays

Motorola Moto X and Motorola Moto G get updated boot screens for the holidays
Motorola has quietly pushed out an update to both the Motorola Moto X and the Motorola Moto G. There is nothing terribly exciting coming from the update except a change to the boot screen animation. This is the animation you see on the phone when you first boot it up. And with the holiday season upon us, Motorola has decided to add some holiday flavored cheer to the screen.

To see the holiday boot-up screen with animals and snow and Christmas Trees, all you need to do is to re-boot your Moto X or Moto G. The phone you use has to be running Android 4.4. Or, install the Motorola Boot Services app from the Google Play Store and it will also update the boot animation. The holiday boot animation is expected to stay on the phones until January 6th. After that date, Motorola will switch the boot animation to something new, or revert back to the old pre-holiday animation.

Motorola and Google have started offering many features for their top-line models directly from the Google Play Store.This way, the latest updated version can always be ready,waiting to be installed by a Motorola customer without having to wait for those meddling kids slow as molasses carriers to test even the most minor of updates.
