Motorola is still slowly but surely delivering the Android 8.0 Oreo update to its lineup of smartphones. And while most owners are looking ahead to Android Pie, some are only just now getting Oreo. Here we’ll go over everything Moto owners need to know. This is the latest info about updates to the Moto Z, Moto Z2 Force, Moto G4, X4, G5, and more.
Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo update arrived in August of 2017, followed by another update to Android 8.1 in December. Motorola quickly updated most of its devices, but now Android 9 Pie is over 2 months old and some phones don’t even have Oreo. Most notably older devices or carrier models.
In total, Motorola confirmed Android O for 10 of its most popular smartphones last year. Additionally, that announcement also explained what devices won’t get new software. That said, here are all the details we have thus far, recent updates, and the latest Moto Oreo news.

There are more than 10 listed, but in total 10 Motorola phone families have Android Oreo here in 2018, or will soon. Essentially we see Motorola’s most recent smartphones and last years flagship Moto Z. That’s about it though. The entire Moto G4 family didn’t make this list. Furthermore, the Moto G4 Play received Android 7.1.1 Nougat in January 2018. Yes, that’s over 13 months late. It will not get an update to Oreo, unfortunately.
