Motorola revealed a long list of devices that are eligible for a Android Nougat update last year. As expected, it was prompt in seeding the firmware to its flagships and a few other popular handsets, but not to the Moto X Play, leaving the owners of the device disappointed.

The Lenovo-owned company made an ambiguous statement on its official blog a few days ago, making everyone think that it had already rolled out Android 7.1.1 Nougat and not the Android 7.0 version to the Moto X Play. However, it has turned out that the much-awaited firmware hasn't been seeded yet.

"We are excited to announce a new software update for Moto X Play. This update brings important improvements to your phone," reads a statement on the Motorola website under the topic 'Moto X Play- Android 7.1.1 Software Update'. 

The announcement came a few days after the Moto X Force devices in India got Android Nougat update, so people thought the new firmware has already been rolled out to the Moto X Play. Many users took to social media to express their disappointment and complain on Twitter about non-availability of the OS.

Motorola has refused to reveal the exact release date of the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to the Moto X Play, though one can safely say that the day is not far when the firmware will be seeded to the device. It could even happen in the next few days, as the smartphone maker has clearly mentioned the launch of the OS to the handset. It has also published a manual guide for installing the OS.

Motorola has rolled out Android Nougat update to devices like the Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus, Moto Z, Moto Z Force, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Droid Force, Moto Z Play, Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen), Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and Droid Turbo 2. The firmware brings in numerous enhancements, including new multi-tasking features, better notification controls, improved data saver, battery enhancement, video calling and stability among others.
