Moto Z Droid and Z Force Droid get their first software updates, July security patch included

Vlad, 29 August, 2016

Today Motorola's latest flagship smartphones are finally starting to receive their first ever firmware updates. We're talking about the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid, the Verizon-exclusive devices that went on sale last month.

The new update arrives over-the-air as a 436MB download, and installation should take about 20 minutes according to Motorola. There's no detailed changelog yet, but the company says it includes "enhancements, improvements and the latest Android security updates".

However, the word "latest" really shouldn't be in there because after applying this update you'll have the July security patch level. Obviously the August fixes are already out, and in a few days Google should release the September patch.

Anyway, the updated build number for the Moto Z Droid and Force Droid is MCL24.246-36, which you will see in the About section of your Settings after successfully installing it.
