Motorola and Verizon remained mostly silent on the rollout or whether or not it was supposed to be happening so widely, but this morning Motorola confirmed the good news.
We’ll begin rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat globally to Moto Z and Moto Z Force this week. You can visit the Moto software upgrades page here for more details, including specific information on country and carrier.
But that’s not all. With the upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat, Moto Z and Moto Z Force will be compatible with Daydream, Google’s platform for high-quality, mobile VR.
These are the first smartphones from another manufacturer to be recognized by Google as Daydream-ready devices – a distinction given to phones that have been certified for the Daydream platform and are built for VR with high-resolution displays, ultra-smooth graphics and high-fidelity sensors for precise head tracking.
Daydream offers an unprecedented opportunity to dive into a kaleidoscope of experiences. With Daydream, you can explore new worlds, attend a sporting event or concert, enjoy your own personal cinema and so much more.
To get started, you’ll need Google’s VR headset and controller – Daydream View – available at Verizon, Best Buy and the Google Store in the U.S. Check your local stores in other markets.
