In today’s episode of “The Internet Never Forgets,” Motorola is trying to erase the Android Oreo promise from the Moto G4 lineup. Let’s see how that’s going for them:
This is really fucked up. I still remember when Motorola launched the Moto G4 promising to update to Android O. Wonder why they don’t. https://t.co/xWXgNxLohZ

When the Moto G4 was launched, Motorola specifically mentioned that it would receive Android N and Android O. It was clearly listed on the website, but now, the mention of Android O has mysteriously vanished. You can see the before and after screenshots below.
Motorola and Lenovo made the Android O claim in a number of places at launch, but now they’re all gone. Customers are rightly upset about this. Not only did Motorola make a promise and not keep it, but they’re trying to weasel out of it in a sneaky way. That’s not cool. Motorola has been pretty bad with updates since Lenovo was put in charge.
