Motorola started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat updates to the Moto Z and Z Force back in 2016, but this was only happening for carrier-branded versions in the U.S.
After a while, the same update started showing up for those using non-carrier versions and this rollout has now made its way to Germany. This announcement was made via the Motorola’s Twitter account for the European country, but the tech giant did not specify the version of Nougat that was being rolled out. Nonetheless, since other Moto Z and Z Force users have received the initial version 7.0, it is possible that this is the same version that Germans will be receiving.
Not so long ago, Motorola started its usual soak tests, but this time it was for the Moto Z Play, another variant of the Moto Z series. As it is, those in this same country should be able to receive the Nougat treat on their Moto Z Play handsets very soon. However, given that the flagship models are now receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat, it is obvious that the midranger will start seeing the same OS at a later time.
Like any other Moto Z, those in Germany can as well try to manually check for the availability of the new Android 7.0 Nougat OTA for their devices by heading straight to the Settings menu. Alternatively, just be patient and it won’t be long before the OTA notification comes your way.
Google just started beta-testing the latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat. It is expected that Motorola will at some point make this update available for users of the Moto Z, if not the current Android 7.1.1 Nougat. However, the date cannot be determined for now, but given that Motorola was one of the first companies to update their devices to this new OS, it won’t be long before the same happens with any of the two newer versions of Android Nougat. Keep following and we’ll update you when or if this happens.
