    So how does PIP compare to split screen? Better, worse, different?

    Thanks for the update Pere. I'm still waiting to see who gets Oreo first, my Z Force, my daughter's Z Play or the wife's Z2 Play. All are supposedly "on the way soon".

    Different. You can't really run whatever app is there.

    Folks are starting to report issues on the Moto Forum, with the Z Play and Oreo. Let's hope that these issues can be cleared with a Factory Reset since this will almost certainly be the last Android OS update we receive. Let's hope that some of these are over blown and caused by rogue apps. I hate when I see reports of twist to open camera crashes and other basic Moto functions not working correctly, and major issues with the new Notification panel. Fingers crossed.....

    There was one minor issue with 8.0 on the Z2. Some apps, but not all, stopped sending info to headunits and other devices over BT. So everything says unknown. Seems to mostly affect apps that play locally stored music like Rocket Player and Power Amp. Spotify and Play work fine. This was actually caused by Google removing support for an older BT standard. They put it back in 8.1 and I'm not optimistic we'll see that. Probably see 9 first. So if you're a big local music player, keep that in mind.

    Thanks Pere, and that's my concern. The Z2 series will see Android 9 but we will not. So we will be stuck with any lingering Google bugs in Oreo 8.0.

    I've got.a Moto Z Play. I don't listen to music, but news and talk radio like sports on Tune In and Sirius satellite radio app on blue tooth thru ear buds and on different vehicles with a Gogroove flex smart 2.
    Would I need to beware about updating?
    Thank you

    Went on a road trip for work today, tested a few different apps. TineIn worked fine. Stitcher did not. So there a streaming ng app that doesn't work. Forgot to mention it's also dependent on your Head unit. Mazdas have this issue because it doesn't support the newer BT standard.
