Moto X Play – which was one of the best mid-range budget smartphones of 2015, would continue getting Android updates roughly for 2 years (starting from Sep, 2015). The smartphone offers a complete stock Android experience along with a great battery life.
In the month of January, users received the Android Marshmallow update along with the latest security patch. Well, few of the smartphone manufacturers have managed to push the Android 6.0.1 update. And, Moto X Play users are lucky enough to have received it.
However, the device didn’t support VoLTE for some reason and it was not a good news to most of the users in India. The reason – Reliance JIO (an Indian telecom company) is at the edge of launching 4G LTE with VoLTE. For now, the Reliance JIO SIM cards are available only to Reliance employees and to the ones who would purchase the LYF mobile in order to experience the network. Not to brag, but it’s by far the most powerful network ever to offer 4G LTE with VoLTE in India.
A notification popped recently on my Moto X Play. And, I was surprised to see that Motorola has considered pushing an OTA update to add VoLTE support for Reliance JIO SIM cards. The update is just 19.2 MB in size. Here’s the screenshot:
As you can observe in the image above, the new version tags along the figure as 24.61.70.en.03. Now, that it supports VoLTE for Reliance JIO network, users can enjoy high-speed 4G! It doesn’t end here, though, the update also brings in the latest Android security updates released until May 1, 2016. Various bugs have been addressed and the update log mentions to improve the stability of the system as well.
Did you receive the update? Is there a noticeable bug? Let us know in the comments section below.
