The Moto Z and Moto Z Force will be running on Android Nougat beginning this week. The two smartphones will follow the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL which were earlier updated to Nougat.

When these phones run on Android Nougat, they will be made compatible with the Daydream VR giving users a better virtual reality gaming and watching experience. Only the Pixel phones and now Motorola's two handsets were given the green light by Google to be compatible with its VR headset.

What updates to expect

This update will start to roll out on Moto Z and Moto Z Force handsets all over the world within the week. Owners of the smartphones will soon enjoy the newly released and improved operating system to do things faster and have a better experience of their phones.

How to download

Those who want to know if they can already download the update they can simply check their phone Settings, head to About Phone then see System Updates. Fans have long waited for the Android Nougat since Motorola earlier promised that it would come to their devices.

Despite the upcoming update, Motorola has not yet reportedly released the official changelog for users. But they have made a more exciting announcement about the compatibility of the device for the Daydream VR headset.

New settings

Other updates rolling out on Motorola phones include the Swipe action which shrinks the screen of the handset. The company even introduced high-tech settings for some of their devices like the lockscreen enable and disable and the fingerprint sensor for the Moto G4 Plus.

When it came out last month, the Moto Z was praised for its great performance, good screen and its light design. Experts, however, claimed that Motorola can still lower the price of the device and improve battery performance since it can get hot when used heavily.
