Moto G5 Plus Reportedly Receiving Software Update to Fix Audio Quality During Video Recording


  • The update is currently being rolled out in Brazil
  • The update improves audio quality during video recording
  • The Moto G5 Plus was launched in India last week

The Moto G5 Plus was launched in India last week following its announcement at MWC 2017 last month alongside the Moto G5. Fresh reports say that the Moto G5 Plus is receiving a software update in Brazil that fixes audio issues while video recording.

According to TechDroider, the new software update for Moto G5 Plus fixes an issue that improves the audio quality of the device while recording videos along with stability improvements and bug fixes. The update has a build number NPN25.137-33 and is around 280.7MB in size.

What is unclear as of now is whether the audio issue is being faced across all Moto G5 Plus smartphones or is restricted to a few devices. The OTA update can be expected to roll out in India as well in the coming days so Moto G5 Plus users can check whether the update is available by going to Settings > About Phone > Software Updates if they haven't received any notification.
