To everyone’s surprise, Motorola was among the first non-Google brands to bring the Android 7.0 Nougat update to its budget-ranged devices. Apart from the goodness of enhanced Doze Mode and fluidic user interface, you can now also use one-handed mode on Moto G4 and G4 Plus.

Apart from the user-friendly one-hand mode, the latest update also brings a slew of Moto Actions. This feature essentially brings a bunch of gestures to the devices, which we will be sure to discuss in another post. For now, here is the easiest way to activate the cool new one-handed mode feature right now.

How to Use One-Handed Mode on Moto G4 and G4 Plus

From the home screen of your Moto G4 and G4 Plus device, head over to the app drawer and tap on the Moto app icon as seen below. In this app designed especially for the Moto devices, you will find the Actions tab, so go ahead and open it.
