Motorola say Moto Z & Moto Z Force will start receiving update to Android v7.0 this week… also both devices will become Google daydream compatible.
After the start of the Android 7.0 Nougat update global rollout for the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus smartphones, the Android 7.0 Nougat update will soon start rolling out to the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. The company in a blog post on Monday made the announcement that Android 7.0 Nougat will roll out on Moto Z and Moto Z Force globally beginning this week. Users can manually check the update via Settings > About Phone > System updates. Motorola had promised the Android N update for the Moto Z family in September, saying it would roll out by the 4th quarter of 2016 and they are actually keeping to their words.
Unfortunately, the company has not provided the official changelog for the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the smartphones. Motorola however stresses that with the upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat, Moto Z and Moto Z Force will be compatible with Daydream, which is Google’s platform for mobile VR
The company stresses that the Moto Z and Moto Z Force will become “first smartphones from another manufacturer to be recognised by Google as Daydream-ready devices.”
To experience Daydream, users will however need a Daydream compatible headset for now, Google’s own Daydream View VR headset and controller is available at Verizon, Best Buy, and the Google Store exclusively in the United States.
