Moto Z Play Android 7.1.1 Nougat soak test begins in India, coming to Moto X Play soon


Almost four months after rolling out Android 7.0 (Nougat) update for the Moto Z Play smartphone in India, the company has started Android 7.1.1 update for select users who are in the Moto Z Play soak test program in India and Brazil. The latest update also includes June 2017 security update for the smartphone. The update comes a month after a minor 51.9MB April security update with build number NPNS25.137-24-1-9.

This update does’t bring fingerprint gestures like the Moto G5 series smartphones. Changelog for the Moto Z Play’s Android 7.1.1 update is now live on Motorola support site, so the smartphone is expected to get the update soon.

This update introduces changes including the following:

  • Android 7.1.1 Nougat – Many enhancements including new multitasking features, more efficient notification controls and improved data saver and battery features.
  • Video calling: Duo is a one-to-one video calling app for everyone – designed to be simple, reliable and fun so you never miss a moment.
  • Stability improvements: Includes changes that fix bugs and improve the stability of your phone.
  • Android security: Includes the updates of Android security patches until May 1st 2017.

The Android 7.1.1 Nougat OTA update has the Build number NPN26.107 and is 981MB in size. The soak test currently rolling out in India and several other regions so the final update for all the users should be available soon. If you can’t wait, you can flash the soak test ZIP file manually.
