Following the announcements earlier this year on the rollout of Android 8.0.0 Oreo OS update in New Zealand on the moto x4, Motorola continues to support the latest Android operating system to include the suite of products in the moto z family. These updates promise to further accentuate the consumer experience and amplify noteworthy features making the device smarter, faster and more powerful.


The latest Android 8.0.0 Oreo does not disappoint, packed with many enhancements, including new multitasking features, security capabilities, improved notifications and performance.


Some of the changes included in this 1.1GB update are:


  • The ability to autofill your logins to favourite apps
  • Faster speeds, longer battery life and smart text selection
  • Picture-in-picture gives you a floating window letting you do more at the same time
  • Notification dots on your apps to alert you of something new
  • Google Play protect to keep you safe from malicious apps
  • Further improved battery life
  • New Emojis - one can express themselves in very many new ways through a fully redesigned Emoji set which includes over 60 new Emojis

Not stopping there, the update is not limited to the above, the Android 8.0.0 Oreo will additionally update your moto z handset with the following:


  • Camera improvements: improved performance and capture speed for photos with depth information
  • System storage: reduction of storage used by system files by up to 2GB
  • Stability improvements: includes changes that fix bugs and improve the stability of your phone.

The Motorola handsets now supporting the Android 8.0.0 Oreo update include:


  • moto x4
  • moto z
  • moto z Play
  • moto z2 Play

Waiting for Oreo for the G4.  Phone came from, looked like it was sourced from Spain based on the messages it shows sometimes.
