Moto G4 Play will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat in June

20 April 2017
The lowest-end member of the G4 trio from last year apparently hasn't been forgotten.

Mine (XT1601, unlocked) received the 7.1.1 update and April 2018 Security Patch last Friday. Talk about a looooong update rollout. It came one year after the announcement! So if your haven't got the update yet, don't freak out. It will come.

2018/03 and still no Android update. Last security update is from 2017/08. Screw Lenovo/Motorola.

Good to hear N is coming to the G4 Play but disappointed it's taking so long. Got two running in my family's fleet. Thinking of a G5 Plus but purchase is contingent on N first being delivered to the G4 Play. Seeing is believing as I've been burned before with broken upgrade promises.

Lenovo is the biggest liar when it comes to software updates. Never trust them. Do not buy Moto phones based on timely software updates. Those days are gone.

Don't make us fool bro..G4Play is still on Marshmallow with 1st Feb,2017 security patch level. Either you are trying to be smart or you are running a custom ROM based on Nougat.

The G4 might be getting the same thing- I don't see 'em being updated next year. The glorious days of double and triple updates for the Moto G series are over. :(

The update that just came out for the g4 play fixed A LOT of bugs on marshmallow. As long as nougat doesn't introduce new bugs, then it'll be great.

Just in time for me to think about replacing my Moto 4 play with the new upcoming OnePlus 5 Flagship.

What about moto g turbo ??

Well, the Moto G series was always praised for the software experience including software updates that looks like Nexus treatment (except the G3 for some not-at-all obvious reason)
