Android 7.0 Nougat update status for Motorola Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus: Is Google's new OS available now?Motorola

Users of Motorola Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are experiencing new confusion of sorts about the newest Google Android 7.0 Nougat OS update being made available to their smartphones. An official tweet made by Motorola India about 32 hours ago made it clear that Android Nougat was still some time away from being officially rolled-out to Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. Now, after a significant period of time, we checked out if Android Nougat was available officially to Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus.

During our testing, the OS update status said, "Your firmware is up to date" and did not indicate the availability of Android Nougat as an OS update. Even the Moto G4 Plus displayed an identical status. This meant that we should currently bear with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for an indefinite period of time.

However, an interesting aspect was that owners of Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus (residing in unknown geographical regions) stated that their devices got Android Nougat. But this was even before Motorola tweeted that the update deployment is yet to take off.

Even Motorola-Lenovo official forums have been flooded with queries regarding the roll-out status of Android Nougat for the Moto G4 Plus and the Moto G4. But no new status has come to light. If you are a Moto G4 (or the Moto G4 Plus) owner, do check your smartphones on a regular basis for the Android Nougat firmware and let us know if your handsets have received it officially so that we consider your inputs. You can even send screenshots of the new OS update. 

Do remember that side-loading of Android Nougat on Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus is unauthorised and is not recognised by Motorola. Though you will be able to enjoy certain Android Nougat features, the full functionality will not be available. Your smartphone also runs a risk of being derecognised when it runs an OS that is not officially seeded.
