Unlike many of the recent Motorola smartphones, which have received the Android Pie update, the Moto G4 Plus is not among them. The latest event surrounding it is that it has started receiving the Android 8.1 Oreo update. The apprise is going to automatically come to the smartphone so you don’t need to do anything manually.
To recall, Motorola initially did not include the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus in the update schedule, back in September 2017. A few days later, the company clarified that it might launch the Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Moto G4 Plus, but did not give a confirmation in this regard. It seems that it took a long time for Motorola to launch this update for its smartphone.
