Motorola starting rolling out the Android 11 update to its edge+ flagship phone today. The update includes one surprise feature addition: wired video output including a full windowed mobile desktop experience. Connecting the phone to a TV or monitor automatically launches a new software experience that Motorola calls "Ready For". It focuses on four areas: In addition to Gaming and the Mobile Desktop (which supports a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse), there are also Video Chat and TV modes. The Video Chat mode lets you pick between the main camera or the 16 megapixel wide camera, and works with all major video chat services, including Zoom, Teams, and Meet. The TV mode shows a dashboard of all your favorite video streaming apps. Motorola also launched a new accessory called the Ready For dock, which makes it easy to position the phone at the best angle for video chats, and can be mounted to a tripod.
