Moto G4 Plus now getting Android 7.0 Nougat update in the U.S.

As it was expected, Moto G4 Plus units in the US finally receiving the Android Nougat update. Motorola has started rolling out a new update to its Moto G4 Plus smartphone in the US that brings Nougat OS to the handsets. The update is hitting the unlocked Moto G4 Plus (XT1644) units and weighing in at 741MB. This is quite a bit late for US owners as the Nougat roll out the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus started back in last year to some countries, but now it’s coming to the US owners also.

The new update brings all the new Nougat features to the handset. Android 7.0 Nougat brings new multitasking features, more efficient notification controls and improved data saver and battery features. This brings a new Moto action that lets you swipe to shrink the screen. Users will also have a new setting to disable and enable locking the screen when the screen is on and you touch the fingerprint sensor (for Moto G4 Plus only). To access this setting, go to the Settings, scroll down to “Security”, then tap on the screen lock gear icon.

As usual the OTA update is rolling out gradually, it may take some time for the update notification to reach your device. To check manually for any software upgrade notification Go to the Apps > Settings > About Phone > System Updates. If the update is available to you, you’ll see a pop-up notification asking you to download.
