Yesterday Motorola's arm in Germany revealed via its official Twitter account that the Moto X Play from 2015 is going to receive its Android Nougat update by the end of this month. And now the same account is back with basically the same time frame for the newer Moto Z Play.
While the Moto Z and Moto Z Force have already tasted Nougat, the third member of the Z line hasn't had the honor yet. That will change by the end of January, however, at least for devices purchased in Germany (and, we assume, all of the EU). As usual unlocked units are likely to get it first, then followed by phones purchased from carriers. January will definitely be an update-filled month for Motorola in Europe, since the Moto G4 Nougat build is scheduled to arrive this month too.
On the other hand if you're in Canada and bought your Moto Z Play from Koodo Mobile, the Nougat update will be made available on March 4, according to the carrier's own page listing upcoming software updates.
