Non-Droid Moto Z receives Soak Test that includes Android 7.1.1 and the June security patch

Last week, the Moto Z Play Droid became the first Moto model in the U.S. to receive the update to Android 7.1.1. Today Motorola has started to soak test Android 7.1.1  on the non-Droid version of the Moto Z. Some of those who own the device and subscribe to the Motorola Feedback Network were given the option to participate in the soak test. If you happen to be one of them, you might receive the update today on your handset. Remember, the idea behind these tests is to give the manufacturer feedback on the update so that changes can be made before all users are affected.

Besides Android 7.1.1, the update includes new icons for Motorola's system apps, and the June 1st Android security patch. If everything goes smoothly and no changes to the update need to be made, Android 7.1.1 could get disseminated to the rest of the non-Droid models of the Moto Z in one to two weeks. And that would leave the Moto Z Droid, the Moto Z Force and the Moto Z Force Droid as the remaining Moto Z series handsets lacking the final build of Nougat.

Just a few things to remember. When you do receive notification that the update has arrived on your phone, whether for the soak test or for the regular update, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi signal before beginning the installation process. In addition, your battery should be charged to 100% before you start installing the update.
