Motorola Brings Android Pie to Moto Z3 Play Smartphone

You might remember when the Moto Z3 Play first launched, since it was only back in June 2018.

If you live within the United States, you will notice that the Android Pie update for the Moto Z3 Play is already rolling out. We know that many other countries and regions will also soon see the Android Pie update. One important reminder is that you need to make sure your phone is charged up before you begin the Android Pie download and installation.
