According to a report from PiunikaWebo, the Moto G Pro is the first device receiving an Android 11 update. So far, the rollout seems to be limited to devices in the UK. This is being shown by the brand’s official update tracker page. Multiple users in the region also reported that. The update brings the whole set of Android 11 goodies such as one-time permissions, chat bubbles, smart device controls, screen recorder, new media controls in Quick Settings, ‘ and more. The update also brings January 2021 security patch and has 1.13GB in size.
The Moto G Pro is part of the Android One program
The update seems to be rolling out in batches. For that reason, it may take a little time to reach all eligible units. You can try your luck force-checking this update via the Settings > System > Advanced > System Update menu. Although the Moto G Pro isn’t a flagship, it is part of the Android One program. In theory, it ensures at least two major Android updates and regular security patches. Based on this, the device will also get Android 12 as its last major upgrade.
Interestingly, the Moto G Pro is available in the United States as Moto G Stylus. However, this “variant” isn’t part of the Android One program. For that reason, there is no guarantee that it will receive the Android 11 update soon. Honestly, we believe that it will reach the device, after all the Moto G Pro software should run fine on its G Stylus counterpart. With a few adjustments, the brand can bring it to the US version.
