Motorola sends teaser telling Moto Z2 Force users that Android 8.0 is a few weeks away

Some owners of the Motorola Moto Z2 Force have received a teaser telling them that the update to Android 8.0 "may take a while, so check back in a few weeks!" The update adds new features like Picture-in-Picture (which allows users to watch video while continuing to work with an app running in the background), Adaptive Icons (Hello, Squircle!), Autofill and more.

Possibly more exciting for those with a Motorola handset receiving the Oreo update, are the several new applications that are unique to the manufacturer. These include a new feature that saves passwords in a secure manner, and a new Moto Live Stream feature.

Motorola has been testing Android 8.0 on several models including the Moto Z2 Force, which is rumored to be the first model in line for the update. Soak tests reportedly have already begun for the Moto Z, Moto Z Play, and the aforementioned Moto Z2 Force.

It would have been nice if the Z2 was brought to Canada.
