First-gen Moto G snags Android Lollipop update
If you own a first-gen Moto G, you’ve probably been waiting patiently for the Lollipop update to arrive for your phone ever since the second-gen G received the update way back in January. Your time has finally come today, as Motorola continues onward updating its lineup of smartphones, releasing today the first-gen Moto G Lollipop update for download.
Now that Lollipop is basically a year old (“Android L” was announced at Google I/O last year, and this year’s conference is less than a week away), you’ve had quite a while to familiarize yourself with all of its features. You’ll get all of that with this update – though unfortunately, this update is to Android 5.0.2, not Android 5.1 (with all of its additional bugfixes)
The first-gen Moto G Lollipop update brings changes to the following:
Notifications UI & Priorities
New Interruptions & Downtime Settings
Recent apps (Multi-tasking)
Motorola Assist and Downtime
Share your Device
Pin a view/app
Smarter Internet Connections
Smart Lock (Trusted Devices)
The update should now be rolling out to eligible devices; check your own phone for the update, and let us know how it goes down in the comments section below!
Update: As reader Eli Cather pointed out, this update rolled out to certain Moto G devices months ago. This update is likely only for specifically the XT1034 model.
