In late December 2020, Motorola released the list of eligible smartphones for the Android 11 update. However, the company did not reveal when these phones will be getting the update. Now, a month later, one of those handsets, the Moto G Pro, has started receiving the Android 11 update.
According to PiunikaWeb, Lenovo-owned Motorola has begun to roll out Android 11 update for Moto G Pro. The update is currently live in the UK, as per the company’s official update tracker page and multiple users on forums.
The latest system update for the handset comes with January 2021 security patch and weighs 1103.8MB in size. The changelog does not mention anything but users can expect features like chat bubbles, one-time permissions, smart device controls, and screen recorder to name a few.
Anyway, it seems like the update is being pushed in batches. Hence, it may take time to reach every unit. However, users can check if their device has got the update from Settings > System > Advanced > System update
That said, at first glance, it seems weird for Motorola to release the Android 11 update first for Moto G Pro, a budget smartphone. But then, we realized that this handset is part of the Android One program. Therefore, this phone is also eligible for the Android 12 update as it debuted with Android 10
Also, it is worth noting that this very same phone is sold as Moto G Stylus in the US. But that model is not part of the Android One program and there’s no telling when it will be getting the Android 11 update.
