    so moto allows more than one check a day? the note only allows one update check every 24 hours. I would do an online search for addition updates.

    I can check without any issues... That's kinda weird. Why can't they let you be neurotic like me???

    We can click the button a thousand times a day, but I believe the actual process to check in with their servers only happens once a day automatically. Or on a reboot, I believe; not 100% sure.

    when I click it, it tells me how many hours and minutes before I can check again though to be fair, not sure if it is still that way with oreo. Not expecting any updates at this time :)

    Soooooo, maybe I'll start tossing in a couple of reboots a day lol.
    Thanks for adding to my neuroses, @Sajo

    3 favorite things:
    PIP: Picture-in-picture. Not all apps support this feature AND I never thought I'd ever care about using it. But it's 'cool'. If you are using Maps for directions and you press home or recent and you go somewhere else, Maps drops to a small PIP window on your screen. If you touch it, it gets a little larger. You can move it anywhere on your screen. If you drag it off the bottom, it closes it PIP but the app still runs. YouTube Red supports this.
    Notification shade: it's PRETTY. lol Apps can now show more info in there AND they can use color.
    New calling screen when people call.
    Fun but not functional changes.
    Functional changes that I like include: huge overhaul on Notifications.
    Notification Control. Now when you get a notification, you can swipe left and disable them right there. Instead of having to go into Settings > apps > blablabla. Huge improvement.
    You can also 'Snooze' notifications now, too.
    Notifications have priorities now, too. Some will fill your shade but not pop at you and others will. This is customizable too.
    Android now communicates better to you about background tasks. For instance I never knew Pandora was running in the background every time my phone connects to my car.
    Settings have been rearranged quite a bit. Everything is in more of a "that makes more sense" kind of place. BUT Battery Stats have been a little TOO simplified.
    And finally, BT audio quality has been GREATLY improved by supporting some newer standard that I don't know all the details of.

    Oh, that sounds great! I can't wait!! I didn't really understand the importance of PIP, but that makes sense now. How cool!
    Thanks for making the time to fill us in. I appreciate it!
