Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus Receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat Update in India


Motorola today announced that it has started rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus in India. This makes the Lenovo-owned company the first in the world to roll out the Nougat update to any of its smartphones.

Moto is also adding a new Moto action with Nougat that lets you swipe to shrink the screen, and a new setting to disable and enable locking the screen when the screen is on and you touch the fingerprint sensor (for Moto G4 Plus). To access this setting, you need to go to Security, then tap on the screen lock gear icon.
