The Android Pie update for Moto X4 in India is rolling out over-the-air and can take at least a week or two to reach all the units. And, if you don’t get an update notification on your Moto X4 within that time frame, then you can check for the update manually by heading over to the Settings > System > System updates menu.

As this is an Android version update, it weighs more than 1 GB in size, hence, we advise you to download it over a Wi-Fi network. Besides, you are also advised to have at least 50% battery charge left on your Moto X4 before installing this Android Pie update.
