Motorola, or rather Lenovo now, are beginning their Nougat push starting this week with the Moto Z and Moto Z Play as well as the Moto G4 Plus.
The update is beginning to push to phones from this week bringing all the goodness of the Android 7.0 update which includes the dual-pane multi-tasking as well as more efficient notification controls and improvements to Doze which should make for better battery life. Also included is new emoji support – you get 72 new emoji! – as well as DayDream compatability for the Moto Z phones.
While the announcement has been made today it does look like Lenovo has been pushing it to some Moto Z owners in Australia already. Adam advised us last month that he had received the Nougat update on his Moto Z purchased from Harvey Norman:

Word on when other devices in the Moto range such as the Moto X Play, Style and Force, all of which went on-sale last year, will receive the Nougat update hasn’t been announced. However they will be getting Nougat according to their software update page
If you own a Moto device in the list, you can start checking under Settings to see if the update is available.
