Android 7 Nougat Update Coming to Moto G4/ Moto G4 Plus

Motorola and Lenovo recently have testing the new Android N update for their Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus devices in Brasil. Motorola has started a soak test Brasil to check any bugs and glitches in the Android N update so that all the users must have a bug free experience.

Just a few hours back the company has officially announced that the Android 7.0 Nougat update has been released for both Moto G4 and G4 Plus smartphones.

The announcement page also contains details of all the changes/features that the update brings along. So here is the information mentioned on the website for the Android N update.





  • Quick switch between apps: Double tap the overview/recent apps button to switch between your two most recently used apps.
  • Multi-window view: Android Nougat supports multi-window view, so you can run two apps side by side in your screen. Important: the developer of the app needs to enable multi-window view.
  • Work mode:  Android Nougat comes with a new work mode toggle, which allows you to conveniently turn on and off your device’s work apps and related notifications for a better work-life balance.


  • Data saver: Data saver helps reduce cellular data usage. When Data saver is on, apps running in the background won’t be able to access cellular data. An app you’re currently using can access data, but may do so less frequently.
  • Doze on the Go: Android Nougat comes with an improved Doze mode. Now your device goes into lower power usage when you are not using it and the screen is off, even if you’re on the move.
  • JIT compiler: The new JIT compiler improves runtime device performance, helps reduce the amount of storage space required for apps, and helps make app and system updates much faster.
  • Stability improvements: Includes changes that address bugs and help improve the stability of your phone.




  • Notification direct reply: Android Nougat lets you quickly reply to messages right from the notifications. When you receive a message, swipe the status bar down and tap “Reply” on the message notification.
  • Bundled notifications: Get more information at a glance! In Android Nougat, multiple notifications from the same app are bundled together into a single notification group.
  • Notification controls: You now have more control over notifications. Just press and hold on a notification to toggle the settings.


  • Custom quick settings: Android Nougat lets you rearrange the quick setting tiles, so you can find your commonly used settings faster. Just swipe the status bar down with two fingers, then tap “Edit” at the bottom of the quick settings panel.
  • Quick settings bar: A new settings bar was added at the top of the notification shade, so you can conveniently access your quick settings when reading your alerts.
  • Improved settings navigation: Find the right setting faster with an updated navigation menu in Settings.
  • Settings suggestions: Android Nougat gives you meaningful suggestions for how to get more out of your device. Find them at the top of the Settings menu.
  • Lock screen wallpaper: You can now have different wallpapers on your phone’s homescreen and lockscreen. To set the wallpapers, long-press on an empty space in your home screen, then tap “Wallpapers”. Once you select an image, tap “Set wallpaper” at the top of the screen, you will be prompt to set the selected wallpaper for the home screen, lock screen or both.
  • Improved system backup coverage: Android backup covers more device settings in Android Nougat, including accessibility settings, run-time permissions for apps, Wi-Fi hotspot settings and Wi-Fi network restrictions.
  • New and updated emoji: Do you speak fluent Emoji? Bring your words to life with all-new emoji, including redesigned human emoji with multiple skin tones.
  • Emergency information: Emergency Information lets you add information such as name, blood type, allergies, and an emergency contact so that emergency responders can view this information through your device’s lock screen.

Moto experiences

  • New Moto action: We added a new Moto action to your phone: Swipe to shrink the screen. To learn more about this action, open the Moto app from the app tray, then go to “Actions” and tap “Swipe to shrink the screen”.
  • Fingerprint sensor for screen lock (Moto G Plus only): We added a new setting to disable and enable locking the screen when the screen is on and you touch the fingerprint sensor. To access this setting, open Settings from the app tray, scroll down to “Security”, then tap on the screen lock gear icon.


While these are the major changes that are going to arrive to your smart phone with the new update of Android N. You can definitely head towards the main Motorola website by the source mentioned below.
