Moto G 3rd Generation - Release Notes

Moto G 3rd Generation - Release Notes


We are excited to announce a new software update for Moto G (3rd Gen.) by Motorola.

This update brings important security and stability improvements to your phone.

For more information on Motorola updates and repairs, visit us at www.motorola.com/mymotog.


This update includes changes including the following:

Stagefright Security Vulnerability

Closes a potential security vulnerability that involves the mechanisms used to retrieve a message sent via the Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS).

Night Mode (Camera) Adds the night mode option to the Motorola Camera application where necessary (some phones in some regions did not have it enabled in the initial production software). This mode allows you to take a picture in very low light with less risk of motion-induced blur (at a reduced 5MP image size).
Stability Improvements Includes changes that fix bugs and improve the stability of your phone.



For a successful installation, we recommend installing this update when the battery in your phone is at least 50% charged and you are connected to a Wi-Fi network.
