Verizon Moto Z2 Force now getting Android 8.0 Oreo

by John_A

Verizon’s Moto Z2 Force is the first one to get the Oreo update.

The Moto Z2 Force shipped this past August with Android Nougat out of the box, and as per usual with Motorola phones, the software experience was one of the Z2 Force’s best attributes. If you purchased the phone through Verizon Wireless, the user experience is about to get even better thanks to the Android 8.0 Oreo update.


Users started receiving 8.0 on the Verizon Z2 Force in the wee hours of the morning on December 22, making this the first version of the phone to get Oreo in the United States. Verizon’s not typically known for fast software updates, so this is a very pleasant surprise.

As per usual with the Oreo update, this upgrades the Z2 Force with adaptive notification dots, picture-in-picture, a new look for emojis, and overall faster performance. Also, as noted in the changelog, the update adds a new call screen to the Z2 Force.

Oreo is starting to roll out now, and we’ve still yet to hear when other carriers in the U.S. will follow suit.
