Android Oreo 8.1 Now Available for The Moto X4 on Project Fi

Good news this morning for Moto X4 owners who are on Project Fi.  Your Android Oreo 8.1 update is now ready to download.  The update follows up the Oreo update back in December for the device which is the first non-Google branded phone to work with Google’s MVNO service.

If you have a X4 on Fi, you should have the update available by checking for it in the device’s settings under the About phone section.  It is a small update given that it is incrementing the Oreo build on the device but it is always a good ideal to download these types of updates via WiFi.

In addition to all the goodies that come with Oreo 8.1, the Moto X4 will also be getting the April Android Security Update patch when you update as well as a new dark theme and power menu.  All of these are pretty small updates in the grand scheme of things but it is always good to have the latest security patches indeed.

The X4 has been the budget entry into Project Fi and remains the only non-Google phone that will work on the service.  Price at $249, or just over $10 a month on a payment plan, the X4 gives you a lot of bang for the buck with dual rear cameras at 12MP and 8MP, a front facing 16MP camera and 32GB of storage.  If you are curious about the Moto X4 and Project Fi, you can head over to the site to check out the details.
