T-Mobile Moto Z2 Force begins receiving its Android 8.0 Oreo update


It looks like another T-Mobile device is starting to receive its Oreo treat.

Some T-Mobile Moto Z2 Force owners have started receiving an Android 8.0 Oreo update. TmoNews reader Rick as well as users on both T-Mobile’s forums and the XDA Developers forums say that they’ve gotten the update over the air as build OCX27.


This update includes Oreo goodies like picture-in-picture as well as the December 1, 2017 Android security patches. T-Mobile hasn’t updated its official Moto Z2 Force support page with info on this update, so it’s unclear what other improvements or changes may be included.

If you’ve got a Moto Z2 Force and haven’t yet gotten your helping of Oreo, you should see it in the coming days.

Thanks, Rick!

    The biggest news about this update is that it FINALLY fixes the texting issues. The double text with MMS are gone. The no notifications while using third party texting apps is also gone. I’m finally able to switch back to Android Messages and quit using the awful Motorola Messages. I’ve also noticed the battery life seems to have improved a bit.

      I can’t wait!! These darn messages are soooooo annoying!

        I never got a notification and checked manually and there it was. I’m sure you’ve checked, but if not, see if it’s waiting.

    Interesting given the T-Mobile site still states ‘T-Mobile Testing’ https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-37058. I heard this rumor a week ago and have been checking for updates with no result. There are not that many devices out there that i would have to wait so long on a slow roll out.

    Mine hasn’t get it yet I wonder why is not like they sold thousands

  • Nicholas Smith

    Checked mine, no updates

    My phone received the update. I wish it didn’t. Once the update completed, my microphone was disabled and the Bluetooth feature would not connect to any wireless devices. OS 7.1.1 is the better option until the bug is fixed. Luckly under warranty, Motorola provides paid shipping to have fixed no cost or a $400 deposit with a $25 shipment payment to receive a replacement first before sending out the defective device. Always a good thing to keep your previous devices to use as a personal loaner phone.

      That sucks. I did not have any of the issues you mentioned but many never had the texting issues I did. It’s a crap shoot with Motorola devices anymore I swear.

    TMobile software updates page is now showing that the Moto z2 force Oreo update is now complete but mine hasn’t get it yet
