Motorola Device Manager is used to install drivers for devices running Motorola OS, Android and Windows Mobile. The Windows version of the program also allows users to update Android devices to the latest OS version. Access this feature by clicking Check for Device Update in the Motorola Device manager icon on the system tray.

To ensure the phone properly connects to Motorola Device Manager, the device must have USB Debugging disabled and the USB connection must be set to Media Device (MTP). Change these settings under Developer Options in the phone's settings.

If Motorola Device Manager fails to find drivers for a phone, specific drivers are also available on the official Motorola website. Look up a phone by model number to find its drivers. Additionally, software updates are available directly from a phone's settings.
