Moto G6 Play update details

The update rolling out is just over 600MB in size. Hence it is advisable to use a steady Wi-Fi connection before initiating the update process. As mentioned, the update brings in the slightly dated June 2019 Android security patch. For perspective, companies have begun rolling out August 2019 security patch for their smartphones.

In addition to the patch, the update brings in the Digital Wellbeing feature to the Moto G6 Play. This default Android Pie feature helps users track their screen on time, and in the process reduce it. Another noteworthy feature rolling out with this update is Motorola’s own One-Button Nav.

Here you essentially get a pill shaped button at the bottom of the screen, which is used for all gestures. One can tap to go home, a short swipe up for multitasking window, a right swipe to switch to the most recent app, and a left swipe to go back.
