Android 7.0 Nougat For Moto X Pure Edition Rolls Out

Apr 27, 2017 04:24 AM EDT


Previously, Motorola sent out soak test invites in the US for the Moto X Pure Edition update to Android 7.0 Nougat. And now finally, it seems that the tech giant is rolling out that Nougat update to all users of the 2015 phone.

Motorola has posted a new Android 7.0 Nougat support page for Moto X Pure Edition owners to check out. While on the support page nothing has listed that's new or unique with this new update, it does give owners of the smartphone a good summary of all of the major features that are included with Nougat. 

According to Android Authority, the latest support page does not offer any information on the update's file download size, but it is expected that it will be pretty large, so Moto X Pure Edition owners should have to use a Wi-Fi connection to download it. Also, it may take a few days for the latest update to reach all of the phones. Users should also keep in mind that this is the name of the phone in the US; in other parts of the world, it's referred to as the Moto X Style.

Users of Moto X Pure Edition will receive an update notification in due course. Smartphone owners can also manually check for the new software by going to Settings > About phone > System updates.

The Android 7.0 Nougat update to Moto X Pure Edition includes the New Moto Actions and the new features and capabilities that are part of Android 7.0 Nougat. Some of these features include the multi-window view, which allows viewing two apps side-by-side. Doze, the feature that shuts down apps when the handset is inactive, will now do its thing even when users are on the go. This update also extends the battery life of Moto X Pure handset, according to Phone Arena.

Other features include Data Saver, which prevents apps running in the background from consuming data. With Android 7.0 Nougat, the user can reply to messages directly from the Notifications feed. In addition, multiple notifications from the same app are listed together to make them easier to find.
