Moto G6 Play Android Q update release date and eligibility

  • Is Moto G6 Play eligible for Android Q? Nope.
  • Motorola promises only one Android OS update for its G6 devices now a days

Motorola isn’t among one of the best OEMs to update their devices anymore. Back in the day when the G series was still in its infancy, Motorola did surprise us with timely updates for its G handsets but it seems those days are fine behind us.

Launched with Android 8.0 Oreo, the G6 Play is not eligible Android Q update. Many G6 Play users, in fact, are yet to receive Android Pie, which is the last eligible update for the S6 Play.

So, even though Android Q packs in some cool features that you will definitely want on your Moto G6, you won’t get an Android Q OTA on G6 Play.

But, there is a chance some good Android Q based custom ROMs will be available, which you can install on your G6 Play (will require TWRP) to get a taste of Android 10 on your G6 Play.

Moto G6 Play Android Pie update

  • Released on Feb 16 in Brazil; Feb 18 in India
  • Released in the U.S. via U.S. Cellular

As of May 17, 2019, Motorola Moto G6 Play users in Brazil, India and on U.S. Cellular can download and install Android 9 Pie on their devices. The rest of the globe, including other U.S. carriers, Europe, and other markets in Asia should begin receiving Pie before the end of Q2 2019.

PSA: No monthly security updates

According to Motorola, those using the Moto G6 will not receive monthly security updates, rather, the company will only be sending out these updates after a period of between 60 and 90 days.
