Motorola recently began roll out of Android Oreo update for Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus owners in India. Now, the company is extending the software to owners of Moto G5S Plus as well. Earlier this month, Moto G5S Plus users in Brazil received Android 8.1 Oreo update and now, the company is bringing the long overdue update to Indian customers.

According to XDA Developers, multiple users of the Moto G5S Plus have reported receiving a notification for the new software update. The update seems to be rolling out only for the Indian models, but it suggests the update will be expanded to other regions as well in the coming weeks. The Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Moto G5S Plus carries the build number OPS28.65-36, and the download is about 1.2GB in size. So it is advisable that you update over a reliable Wi-Fi network.

The good part is that the update is based on Android 8.1 Oreo, and users will be able to experience features like Notifications Dots, autofill password manager, picture-in-picture mode, and faster boot times. It also offers stricter restrictions on background apps and enhances the user experience with a number of under-the-hood improvements.

The Android Oreo update for Moto G5S Plus also brings security updates for the month of August, and the changelog suggests other stability improvements and bug fixes. The update is, of course, being pushed in a staged manner and it may take time for the update to reach all devices. If you have a Moto G5S Plus and cannot see an update then head to over to Settings -> System Update, and tap for Check for update.

Motorola was among the fastest to release software update for its smartphones, but the company has lost out in the past few years. With Google having released Android 9 Pie for its Pixel devices last month, it is certainly not acceptable to see Android Oreo update on just a year old device. Now that Oreo is being pushed to Moto G5S Plus, it needs to be seen whether the smartphone will even get Android 9 Pie.
