The two phones shipped with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow back in July with Moto's light touch applied to its stock Android veneer. The Nougat update brings the standard fare of features to the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid. According to a photo uploaded to Imgur, the update offers split-screen mode and app quick switching, though it's unclear whether Moto itself plans to offer some additional flair.
Another Redditor who received the update confirms that it enables Daydream support, which would make the Moto Z and Z Force the first devices outside of Google's own Pixels to support the company's new VR platform. A screenshot posted on that same thread confirms that the update has the November 1, 2016 security update installed.
We'll have to see whether this is a wide rollout or just a soak test, but regardless of its status, Moto Z Droid users can likely look forward to a Nougat update sooner than later. No word on whether the Moto Z Play is due for the same treatment.
