Motorola is Finally Updating the Moto X Force to Android 7.0 Nougat

By June 24th, 2017 AT 2:50 PM

After a long delay, Motorola is seeding the Android Nougat update to a two-year-old Moto X Force. A few days back, Motorola posted the release notes for the update on its official site. Starting today, the device started receiving the upgrade which takes it to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat version.

Motorola in its blog stated “We are excited to announce a new software update for Moto X Force by Motorola. This update brings Android 7.0 Nougat to your smartphone along with other improvements.” The X Force is currently running the dated Android Marshmallow OS, and the Nougat update could be the last update for the device because the 18-month update period will be completed by the end of June.

The update brings along a host of new features to the phone and takes the device to build number- 25.11.12.en.EU. However, the bitter note is that the update includes the April security patch fixes, and not the May or June security patch fixes.

All the core Android Nougat features such as Notification Direct Reply, custom quick settings, settings app suggestions, updated emojis, quick settings bar, updated messages app, and so on. Also, the update installs the Google Duo video calling app.

Google, with Android Nougat, brought the notification direct reply feature (also called as Quick Reply), which allows you to reply messages right from the notifications itself. However, this feature works only on compatible applications. The update also adds Multi Window mode or Split Screen mode, which lets you use two apps at the same time. Also, the quick app switcher feature makes its way to Moto X Force.

Motorola is also adding a new boot animation, along with new boot screen features such as accessibility option. A new Call Screening feature is also added with the new upgrade, which allows the default phone app to screen/block incoming calls from a blocked number.

The update is currently rolling out in Singapore, but Motorola will soon start the roll out of the Android Nougat update for Moto X Force in India as well.
