In order to access the new animation (see video above via Android Central), Moto X owners will simply have to make sure they’re running the latest Android 4.4 software version that’s available for the handset.
Moto G buyers will have to perform an extra step to see the holiday boot animation on their device, and that is to update the Motorola Boot Services app from the Google Play Store (see the Source link below).
This isn’t a major feature for either the Moto X flagship handset or for the newly launched budge-friendly Moto G, but it’s just another way to get into the holiday spirit, especially if you’re a Christmas person.
For what it’s worth, The Droid Guy says that the animation is available starting today until January 6, so start downloading it! Considering that Motorola has created a special boot animation for Christmas we wouldn’t be surprised to see similar special animations for other occasions. After all, Google loves its doodles, and Motorola is a Google company.
