June 26, 2019: A bad news for Moto Z2 Force users at T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint. Motorola revealed that they won’t be preparing the Android Pie update for the Z2 Force sets at these three carriers and that software update for these devices ends now.
So, only the Verizon Z2 Force will be receiving the Android 9 Pie update, and that’s because it was needed to bring support for the 5G Moto Mod at the carrier.
June 22, 2019: The Moto Z2 Force will soon receive the update to Android 9 Pie. For those on Verizon Wireless, this update will also bring 5G Moto Mod support alongside the latest June 2019 security patch.
The rollout is expected to begin in the coming days.
June 08, 2019: Motorola has switched on the update to Android 9 Pie for the Moto Z2 Force beginning with Brazil, the usual suspects. The update is arriving as version PPX29.159-10 and includes May 2019 security patches.
Usually, Motorola rolls out such updates gradually, meaning it may take several weeks before Moto Z2 Force users in the U.S. and other regions receive the update.

For the latest Motorola Moto Z2 Force and Moto Z2 Play software updates, you are in the right place. On this page, you’ll find all that you need to know with respect to minor and major software updates for the Moto Z2 duo, including all carrier variants – be it their timelines, the changes they bring to the devices, the software version, and whatnot.
Moto Z2 Android Pie update
- Released for Moto Z2 Force in Brazil
- Only Verizon Z2 Force will get Pie in the US
The Motorola Moto Z2 Force was among the first devices to receive Android Oreo, but given that there’s a new kid on the block, the Moto Z3, the 2017 flagship has now become the company’s second priority. This is why the device had to wait until June 2019 to receive the update to Pie, months after the OS rolled out to the Z3.
On June 26, Motorola confirmed that they won’t be rolling out Android Pie for Z2 Force users at AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, which is sad news. Thus, Motorola plans to release Android Pie only for the Verizon Z2 Force handset, in order to bring the 5G Moto Mod support to the device.
