For all the latest news regarding the Motorola Moto G7 software, we’ve got you covered. On this page, we keep track of all the developments related to the Moto G7 software, be it official or non-official, minor or major updates, as at and when we get them.

Since there are multiple variants of the Moto G7 sold in different parts of the world, we’ll try to be specific with most of our coverage, but expect to bump into some cases with blanket coverage of G7 updates.

Moto G7 update timeline

The Moto G series isn’t one to receive monthly software updates, so expect the Moto G7 to get security patches after 60-90 days.

Moto G7 Android Q update

  • Eligible for Android Q update
  • Expected in Q4 2019

Motorola has always stated that the Moto G series is entitled to at least one major OS upgrade. We don’t expect anything to change for the Moto G7, so an update to Android Q is on the cards.

Looking at the Moto G6 and the update to Pie, we could say the Moto G7 will make the switch to Q somewhere in Q4 2019. Hopefully, earlier in the quarter.
