Motorola has announced that it has begun rolling out the Stagefright patch for its smartphones across the globe. The Moto X Pure Edition and Moto X Play come preloaded with the security patch, however, the Moto G (2015) does not.

Per Fone Arena, here’s the full list of devices getting the patch:

  • Moto G 1st Gen – EMEA/India Retail
  • Moto G LTE 1st Gen – Brazil Retail
  • Moto G 1st Gen – Brazil Retail
  • Moto X 1st Gen – Brazil Retail/Telcel Mexico
  • Moto X 2nd Gen – Brazil Retail
  • Moto E 4G 2nd Gen – Asia Retail
  • Moto G 2nd Gen – US Retail
  • Moto G 2nd Gen – Brazil Retail
  • Moto G 3rd Gen – Retail Brazil
  • Moto G 2nd Gen – India
  • Moto E 1st Gen – Brazil/India/US Retail

Fone Arena pictured the Moto G (3rd Gen) receiving the update as version 23.46.4 and is 174MB in size. The update also includes the addition of Night Mode in some markets that didn’t have it enabled during the initial production run. There’s also the usual bevy of bug fixes and performance updates.

Some have already seen this update getting pushed to their devices. If you haven’t already, just head into Settings and check for an update manually.

Motorola announced its plans in August to update all of its devices from 2013 onward to fix the vulnerability, but we haven’t heard anything since then. And oddly, aside from Fone Arena spotting the update in the wild, we haven’t heard anything official from Motorola yet.

Anyone else getting the Stagefright fix?
