Moto G4 Play Picks Up January 2018 Security Patch


The last time we updated you on the status of Moto G4 Play updates, we told you that Motorola is rolling out Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and now the company is sending another update to the device that introduces the January 2018 security patch.

If you own a Moto G4 Play in Brazil you should have received the over-the-air update notification for January 1st, 2018 Android security update. That’s all that is detailed in the new software version (NPIS26.48-36-2), though there is a mention of "KRACK" Fix. It’s a WiFi vulnerability that breaks WPA2 by forcing nonce reuse.

Motorola’s instructions explain that for a successful installation, the battery in your phone should be at least 50% charged and your device should be connected to a Wi-Fi network or LTE.

If you haven't got the notification of this new software update yet, Just go to Settings - About Phone - Software updates, and It will automatically start downloading the latest update. The update will take around 10-15 minutes to get Installed on your device. We will let you know once the update is out for other countries. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter page to get the first News.
