As far as the situation is concerned, Motorola has begun distributing the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for its Moto X Play devices. The US-based smartphone manufacturer announced in June they would prepare the Android Nougat update for their mid-range smartphone, but did not disclose any information about the update’s release date.

We do not know at the moment when the update will start to reach devices in different countries, but at least some of the Moto X Play users have been able to download the update to their devices. These users are reported to be from Brazil mostly.
The update includes one of the security packages Google regularly publishes for Android operating system every month. Although it is not clear which one, it is estimated that August or September security patches are included.
The Moto X Play is a two years old smartphone. For this reason alone, Motorola is no longer expected to release another major Android update for this device from this year.
