  • Fixed an issue which caused temporary cellular network loss for a small number of customers
  • Fixed wallpaper cropping issue
  • Resolved USB OTG support for USB drives
  • Fixed low call volume as experienced by some users

There is no word on when or whether a similar update is going to be released for dual-SIM or CDMA Moto G version.
