On top of the new security patch level, the updates also bring bug fixes and improved system-wide stability to the device. Although the Moto G7 Play is eligible for Android Q, the current software is still based on Pie.
It will take a few days before all G7 Play units receive the download notification, so be patient. FYI, it could take much longer for carrier variants.

Devices in the Moto G series get at least one major Android OS upgrade. With the Motorola Moto G7 Play equipped with Android 9 Pie out of the box, it’s safe to assume that Android Q will be pushed to the device when the time comes.
On matters time, the wait could go all the way to Q1 or Q2 2020 before Android Q arrives.
