  • Stable Oreo update available for G4 Plus
  • Available in the U.S. and India now
  • Should be reaching other markets by March 2019

Motorola wasn’t planning to provide an update to Android Oreo for the Moto G4 Plus, but after facing numerous requests from fans, the company did confirm that an Oreo update would be made available for the Plus variant, but since it wasn’t planned, the company would take its sweet time to make this software update available.

It is, for this reason, the Oreo beta program had to wait until September 2018 to arrive on the Moto G4 Plus, with the stable update arriving on February 09, 2019, in the U.S.
