Motorola had released the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus last year. Later, the company also released a budget-friendly variant of the Moto G4, known as the Moto G4 Play. The Moto G4 Play is available in India for a price of about Rs. 7,999. As for the specifications, the Moto G4 Play came with Android Marshmallow out-of-the-box, 1.2Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM as well as a micro SD card slot which can be expanded up to 128 GB. The users of the Moto G4 Play had been waiting for the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to arrive on their phones and Lenovo had also promised to release the update in June.
Now, the Moto G4 Play is receiving the much-awaited Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to their devices. However, this update is currently only available to the Moto G4 Play users in Brazil but we should expect the Indian users to get the update very soon as well. Talking about the update, the update weighs in at about 638MB in size, which means you’ll want to connect to WiFi before attempting to download and install this update. In addition to bringing the Moto G4 Play to the latest version of Android, it also brings the latest security patch, which is the June 1st, 2017 patch.
Now with the Moto G4 Play being updated to Android 7.1.1, users will get the Google Assistant (although it should already be available, it now officially will be). Users will also get app shortcuts, where if you press on an app icon, a few shortcuts will appear. Stay tuned to know more about the update arriving in your Moto G4 Play smartphone. If you are living in Brazil and own a Moto G4 Play, you can head over Settings then tap on About Phone and System Updates. Tap on Check for Updates and you should be able to download the update.
