Motorola updated the Moto Z to Nougat back in November, and now the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus receive the Android 7.0 update as well. All Moto X and Moto Z variants should get the new firmware soon as well.
Codrut Nistor,

Back in November, Android Nougat became available for the Moto Z handset. A few months ago, Motorola promised to deliver the new firmware to all Moto G, Moto X, and Moto Z handsets by early 2017. The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are now the next ones to get updated.

Android 7.0 Nougat for the Moto G4 handsets comes with the usual goodies - quick switch between apps, multi-window view, improved data saving, enhanced Doze mode, direct reply to notifications, new and updated emojis, new Moto action (Swipe to shrink the screen), fingerprint sensor for screen lock (Moto G4 Plus only), as well as the usual security patches, minor tweaks and improvements.

The update comes via OTA, as usual. Once it has been applied, it is no longer possible to downgrade to the previous version. Moto X and Moto Z owners should get ready for the update as well since we expect their devices to get the new software as previously announced.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
