Android 7.1.1 rolling out to Moto Z Play

Over the weekend, Motorola released Android 7.1.1, along with May's Android security patch for the 2015's Moto X. Now the company is rolling out Android 7.1.1 to last year's budget semi-modular Moto Z Play as well starting with the US. Moreover, select users who are in the soak test program in India and Brazil are also getting the update.
