Moto Z and Moto Z Force become the next officially Daydream-ready phones


Motorola announced that its Moto Z ($699) and Moto Z Force ($720) phones will be getting Android 7.0 Nougat this week.  With Android 7.0, Moto Z and Moto Z Force will become Google Daydream ready.


Notably, Moto Z and Moto Z Force run on Snapdragon 820, which is already being used in several other phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S7.  In that regard, a beta version of Nougat has enabled the S7 Edge to run Daydream even though Google has previously said that then-existing phones would not be compatible with Daydream.

Here is the official announcement.
