When it comes to software, our priority is bringing the best experiences possible to our consumers, and our relationship with Google speaks to that commitment. We continue to build on a tight integration with Google services. As with all Motorola devices, Google Photos remains our native gallery app. With it you will have a new way to store, search, and share all your photos and videos. Automatically organized and searchable by the people, places, and things in them, your photos and memories are always easy to find and share. This means unlimited storage for all of your photos which are automatically backed up and can be accessed, edited and shared from anywhere.
Instead of duplicating the great things Google does with Android, we choose to build upon it to enhance customers’ mobile experience. That’s why moto g 5G plus also includes My UX, which brings all Moto Experiences customers have come to know and love as well as a variety of new customizable features. My UX gives users custom settings and advanced controls to music, videos and games. Users can even create their own device themes by choosing from unique fonts, colors, and icon shapes, so their phone is one in a million.
