The Moto G6, G6 Plus, and the Moto G6 Play have already received Android 9 Pie OTA update across the globe including the a couple of months ago. The latest Android 9 firmware update brought all the Pie goodies along with May 2019 security patch. Today, all three variants including the Moto G6, G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play, of the United States, are receiving a newer security patch level, Digital Wellbeing, and Motorola’s new gesture navigation system.
The latest update for the Moto G6 phones features June 2019 Security Patch level with firmware build number PPP29.55.35-12 (for Moto G6 Play). It also comes with some of the most awaited features such as Digital Wellbeing support right under settings, and Motorola’s very own navigation gestures called One-Button Nav. The previous update, i.e. the Android 9 Pie for the Moto G6 phones, lacked these features upon release. The latest June 2019 fixes that.
You can find the new Digital Wellbeing option right under settings app. “One-Button Nav”, on the other hand, is Motorola’s very own gesture navigation system. The new gestures are similar to the ones that comes with Moto G7 devices. You will find a single pill in the middle of the navigation bar. You can tap the pill to go home, do a short swipe up to enter multitasking, full swipe right to switch to the most recent app, and full swipe left to go back.
The update is currently live in the United States for the Moto G6 Play. The June 2019 update is currently live in Asian countries particularly in India for the Moto G6 (Plus)
retin variant. It is also rolling out in the regions of Europe and North America in phased manner for variants like
retde, retgb, reteu, and
retus. So go to settings > system updates > and check for OTA updates.
