Moto X owners, your Lollipop update has finally arrived!
David Schuster, Motorolaâ€™s software product manager, saysÂ that Android 5.1 is now rolling out to the unlocked versions of the Moto X (1st Gen.) in the US and Brazil. Moto X units on Rogers in Canada are getting their taste of Lollipop as well.
This update is a biggie for the Moto X (1st Gen.), bringing it from Android 4.4 to Android 5.1. That means that itâ€™s going to be getting a material design makeover, an updated Recent Apps feature, the ability to select Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections from Quick Settings, notifications improvements, and more. If youâ€™d like to look over Motorolaâ€™s full changelog, it can be found right here.
To check for the Moto Xâ€™s update, you can head into Settings > About phone > System updates. As with most Android updates, this one is probably going to take a little time to hit all Moto Xs, so be patient if youâ€™re the owner of Motorolaâ€™s first generation X. Itâ€™s also worth noting that folks that own a Moto X with some US carrier branding will have to wait a bit longer for their update. Now that the unlocked model is being updated, hopefully the carrier variants wonâ€™t be far behind.
