Moto Z Play users on Android 8.0 Oreo Soak test are now getting another Software update: Here's What's New

Still waiting for the Android Oreo update for your Moto Smartphone? All we know at this point is that, yes, Motorola is testing Oreo on few Moto Z and Moto G phones. The company isn’t providing a timetable like it did earlier this year, though. That’s likely because it doesn’t want to give false hope and disappointment to their customers.

Back in January, Motorola started rolling out Soak test of Android 8.0 Oreo for the Moto Z Play with December 1, 2017 Android security patch, Stability improvements and other interesting features along with Android 8.0 Oreo goodies.

Then again, there's another update for the Moto Z Play users running Android 8.0 Oreo Soak test. This latest software update features build no. of OPN27.76-12-2 and weighs in at around 450MB.


The update brings latest February 1, 2018 Security patch, Stability Improvements, Camera enhancements, New icons, App dots, Pixel Dialer, and new Moto Launcher, Note that the device still runs Android 8.0 Oreo after the update.
With this new update, Motorola has removed the old Google now launcher and replaced it with brand new Moto Launcher which supports App dots. Additionally, there's new icons for Camera, Settings, Dialer, and Contacts. No, you won't get new Moto Actions with this update.

The company is most likely to start Android 8.0 Oreo official rollout for the Moto Z Play by the end of this month or early March. We will let you know once the update is live. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter page to get the first News.

February Security Update Release Notes are live for the Moto Z, and Moto Z2 Family

Motorola seems to be gearing up to unleash a wave of February Security updates onto its devices. We first saw February 2018 release notes show up for the Moto X4, and Moto G4/Plus, but we are now seeing it for the Moto Z and Moto Z2 Phones.

Motorola mentions that the February update for the Moto Z 2016 includes WPA2 WiFi vulnerability "KRACK" Fix. The Key Reinstallation Attacks (A.K.A KRACKs) was first discovered by Mathy Vanhoef of imec-DistriNet, KU Leuven. It’s a WiFi vulnerability that breaks WPA2 by forcing nonce reuse. Apart from the February 2018 update, there's no mention of any improvements or features for the Moto Z Force, Moto Z Play, and Moto Z2 Play.

The most severe issue patched by Google in the february security bulletin could enable a remote attacker to use a specially crafted file to execute unauthorized code within the context of a privileged process in the Media framework.

There's no information when the company will release February 2018 Security Update. We’ll update you as soon as the February 2018 security patch starts rolling out. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter page to get the first News.

Yesterday, we saw many websites reporting the news that Motorola is rolling out Oreo to a large number of devices including the Moto X4, Moto Z and Z2 Series, Moto G5, Moto G5s Plus, and Moto G4 Plus. Well, the news is quite misleading as the Official Press Release from Motorola only says that the Moto X4 is getting the Oreo update in Australia starting today and the eligible devices for Oreo includes Moto Z and Z2 Series, Moto G5, Moto G5s Plus, and Moto G4 Plus. That said, Don't get spun by Internet rumors.

If you own a Moto Z Play in Brazil, India or HongKong you should have received the over-the-air update notification for September Security Patch, and it's crucial that you download it, as it brings along the fix for the critical BlueBorne Bluetooth attack.

The Blueborne vulnerability was discovered only recently. It’s a Bluetooth vulnerability that leaves Android devices open to a potential takeover by hackers. The vulnerability is also present in Windows, Linux and some iterations of iOS. Note that the device still runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat after the update.


Armis Reported that the BlueBorne spread through the air (airborne) and attacks devices via Bluetooth. Armis has also disclosed eight related zero-day vulnerabilities, four of which are classified as critical. BlueBorne allows attackers to take control of devices, access corporate data and networks, penetrate secure “air-gapped” networks, and spread malware laterally to adjacent devices. Armis reported these vulnerabilities to the responsible actors, and is working with them as patches are being identified and released.

September Android security update also resolves 30 issues dated 2017-09-01, and 51 issues in the one dated 2017-09-05. Vulnerabilities range from moderate to critical, and Google particularly notes that it provides "Android partners with the flexibility to more quickly fix a subset of vulnerabilities that are similar across all Android devices."

The September Android security update for the Moto Z Play comes with build no. NPN26.118-22-2. 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. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter page to get the first News.
