Google has recently started to release month update to fix the security issue/loopholes on its mobile operating system. And this update can be told, is part of it. Motorola, who is always an early adopter of the fixes released by Mountain View, has done it again.

Though, the OTA update rolling out to users brings more than just as a security patch, it introduces some tweaks as well. After this update, you can launch the camera app by double-pressing the power button. Also, the company has brought back the camera shutter tone switch. Thus, you will be able to turn off the shutter sound from the camera app anytime you want, or switch back ON.

Apart from the security patch and changes to camera app functions, there are some general bug fixes done to improve the overall stability of the device. It is recommended that the battery life should be above 50% before you start downloading and installing the update. The size of the update is somewhere around 370MB, which might be a large size considering India still has the slowest internet speed penetration in Asia-Pacific.

After seeing the update window, you’d have to follow the procedure mentioned above.
