Android 7.0 Nougat Now Available On Moto Z

2 February 2017Moto Z (Amazon / Lazada) owners can expect the latest and sweetest update in the form of Android 7.0 Nougat; while Moto Z Play owners can expect the update notification later this month. These updates are part of Moto’s strategy of bringing the best new software and features to customers, and solidifies Lenovo’s commitment to the Moto brand and the Moto Mods-enabled Moto Z Family.

 

You Can Now Upgrade Your Moto Z to Android 7.0 Nougat

With the Android 7.0 Nougat update, Moto Z family (Amazon / Lazada) users will be able to make their devices more personal, more convenient and more customisable. Read on for a quick summary of what the Nougat update will offer.

Multi-Window View

Moto Z and Z Play (Amazon / Lazada) users will now enjoy the ultimate multitasking experience. With just a tap to the overview button, Nougat brings the ability to display two apps on the Moto Z and Z Play’s 5.5-inch Full HD screen at the same time. Now you can watch a movie while reading movie trivia on your browser, or keep an eye on where your car-sharing ride is, while texting your friends letting them know you’re on the way.

*Not all apps support multi-window view. The developer of the app needs to enable multi-window view.

Bundled Notifications and Direct Reply

Stay up to date with everything that’s going on with just a glance. Notifications are now grouped together when coming from the same app. This gives the user a more streamlined and visually pleasing experience when pulling down the notifications bar. On top of that, say goodbye to having to leave an app, just to reply to a text message. With Direct Reply, you can respond to messages within the notifications bar, letting you get back to what you were doing, without having to ever leave the app.

Enhanced Doze Mode

When you are not using your Moto Z or Z Play (Amazon / Lazada), Doze Mode will automatically kick in saving battery so that you’ll have enough to last later in the day. Doze Mode will now also work when you’re on the go, so don’t worry if your device is in your pocket or handbag – it’s still working to save battery.

Data Saver

Battery is not the only thing the Nougat update will save. With Data Saver turned on, the apps running in the background will not be able to use mobile data. Saving data that is unnecessarily being spent means more data for your photo uploads to social media, and much more music and video streaming.

Custom Quick Settings

Added customisability means putting what you want, where you want them. With Nougat, you can rearrange the quick settings however you like. This allows you to change your desired setting quickly and conveniently with just a few taps.

Daydream Virtual Reality

Daydream by Google takes you on incredible adventures in virtual reality with your Moto Z (Amazon / Lazada). Moto Z is the perfect device for virtual reality, with its high resolution Quad HD display, high-powered processor and precise sensors. Nougat brings Daydream compatibility to the Moto Z (Amazon / Lazada). Daydream, Google’s VR platform, allows users to immerse themselves into all the experiences you love and aspire to do.
