Moto G6 Plus update news: Android Pie released; February 2019 patches now available in the US

Latest news

April 20, 2019: A new software update is being rolled out as an OTA now for the Moto G6 Plus users in the US. The update comes with latest security patches for the month of February 2019 but Motorola hasn’t shared any details other than that.

With Pie already available to G6 Plus sets in the US, we didn’t expect much from the updates that will be rolling out now, so there’s that. Motorola doesn’t share software version of its update on the support page, so we are still waiting on the version of the February update.

January 23, 2019: Motorola is outing a new update to the Moto G6 Plus that improves the security patch level to the latest in town – January 2019. Besides security, the update also improves support for Android Messages app, fixes bugs and performs general system optimizations.

The update is airborne meaning it will take some time to reach all units, so be patient. You can also try forcing the update via Settings menu.
