Motorola Introduces Official Face Unlock App

Face unlock, which was only available on only selected high-end smartphones, has now become a common feature on budget smartphones. And the latest company to do so is the Motorola.  Motorola is no different, as some of Moto devices now come with the authentication feature onboard. Motorola
has released companion face unlock feature on the play store, but there is a catch the app only supports a handful of the Moto devices. The app is only for those devices which already comes with face unlock feature.
Called “Moto Face Unlock“, the app is compatible with supported Motorola smartphones which run Android 8.0 Oreo or a higher build.
According to a report from various sources, the Moto Face Unlock app is currently compatible with only the following smartphones:
  • Moto X4
  • Moto Z3
  • Moto Z3 Play
  • Moto G6
  • Moto G6 Play
  • Moto G6 Plus
You might be wondering if the face unlocks functionality is already present on the Moto smartphones, why is their need for releasing a standalone face unlock feature for smartphones which already have the functionality, well, it has a lot to do with Google’s vision of a modular Android ecosystem. Instead of waiting for months to roll out a major software update which upgrades existing apps and also brings new features, smartphone makers can now release standalone apps for different features and update them individually

It is the same case with Motorola, as Motorola can now update the face unlock feature on its smartphones by simply updating the app on a major scale, rather than rolling out a software update which is often dependent on carriers.

As far as the first build of the Moto Face Unlock app is concerned, it doesn’t bring any new features, however, its Play Store listing mentions that it introduces ‘performance improvements and minor bug fixes‘. If you own a compatible Motorola smartphone, you can download the Moto Face Unlock app from the Play Store.
