Moto Z2 Play update

It seems like the Android Oreo update has commenced in Europe, where some of its users of the Moto Z2 Play are reporting to have received the new OS over the air actually. This is indeed what we predicted, that the update will spread from South America to Europe even before the end of this month.

The update also installs software version OPS27.76-12-25, which also brings the latest Android security patches for the month of April 2018 as well. Motorola has also confirmed that they are now rolling out Oreo for the Z2 Play handsets in Brazil actually. Well, more regions would also be covered in the next few weeks, so that the users in India, Europe, too. They can also expect the Android 8.0 update in order to hit their devices before the end of April 2018 actually.

Moto Z Play update

Motorola had also been expected to update the Moto Z Play to Android Oreo somewhere this Q2 2018 and indeed. The company has now delivered through commencing the rollout in India as well. The first instance of Moto Z Play and also Oreo came back in 2017 actually, where the phone was basically reported to be testing the OS in Brazil, however, contrary to the expectation, the first stable release has been spotted in India as well.

Still, that is not much of our concern here actually. Well, what matters the most is that the Moto Z Play is getting Oreo and that sooner or later, and each and every unit out there will be running Oreo.

Motorola has also begun rolling out Android 8.0 to the Moto Z Play in the U.S. over a month following the commencement of the rollout in India too. The update basically comes along with April 2018 security patch and installs software version OPN27.76-12-22.

Well, Motorola has begun seeding the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Moto X4 sets in India as well. The update basically arrives as software version OPW27.2. And it also brings the latest monthly security patch, December 2017. Because it is a really big update, we actually would recommend you to connect your device to Wi-Fi, and then check for the ‘system update’ under Settings > About phone too.

Moto X4 Android One Oreo update

Google has also released the Android Oreo update for the Motorola Moto X4 Android One edition actually. That is available on Google’s own Project Fi program as well.

Moto G5 and G5 Plus Oreo update

Motorola was really quick to update the Moto G4 sets to Nougat last year, which happened before the year came to a close actually. Well, on that basis alone, it would not be wrong to expect the Oreo update from Motorola for the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus handsets before the end of December 2017. However, things have changed this year, for the worse as well.

December has now gone past, and there has also been no news of the Oreo update for the Moto G5 and G5 Plus handsets, let alone a soak test actually. It is now well into May 2018, it still no signs of Oreo on the G5 sets now. Nonetheless, we also expect the Android Oreo OTA in order to hit these devices sometime towards the end of Q2 2018, either along with or after the G5S Oreo rollout actually.

Moto G4 Plus Oreo update

Also, in its list of Oreo eligible devices, Motorola actually skipped the 8.0 update for G4 and G4 Plus. But, things changed instantly, at least for the G4 Plus. Users across the internet also reminded them of their promise at the time of the G4 Plus launch. that it would see both Android N (Nougat) and Android O (Oreo).

Motorola also realized the mistake and agreed to prepare an Android 8.0 software update for the G4 Plus actually.

Moto M Oreo update

Well, strangely enough, Motorola has also struggled in order to update some of its devices to Nougat that deserved it really well. Moto M is one such device whose Nougat release on the global level is still not happening actually. So it was no surprise whenever Motorola excluded it from its list of devices that would get to see a day in Oreo actually.

The one and only way Moto M could run Android Oreo is through a custom ROM such as LineageOS 15. That should become available for the device in stable form pretty soon as well.

Motorola devices not eligible for Oreo

Here is now a list of Motorola devices that won’t really get Oreo 8.0 OTA.

  • Moto G
  • Moto G Turbo
  • Also Moto G2
