Motorola has confirmed that the Motorola Edge+ will receive two major software upgrades. The phone was initially promised only one update, much to the annoyance of everyone. Since the device launched with Android 10, it is guaranteed to receive Android 12.

Android OEMs and Google have been at the receiving end of a bucketload of criticism due to their abysmal software upgrade policies. Even Apple makes it a point to take digs at Android every year, reminding everyone that it offers five major software upgrades, while the best Android can do is two (three in some cases.)

OEMs such as Motorola do little towards furthering Android's march towards regular software updates. On the contrary, they do the diametric opposite, as demonstrated by the recent Motorola Edge+, where the company promised just one software update for its ~$1,000 flagship offering.

Unsurprisingly, this caused quite a stir among the community, and users took to social media platforms far and wide to express their dismay. It appears that Motorola has awakened from its slumber and actually listened to its users for once. The company told DroidLife in a statement that it would deliver two major software updates to the Motorola Edge+, meaning that the device is guaranteed to get Android 12.

It'll be interesting to see if this backlash drives Motorola to focus a bit more on delivering timely updates to its devices. The Lenovo-owned company is one of the slowest in the market and often leaves budget and mid-range devices in the lurch.
