Good news, Moto X owners: It looks like Motorola is getting ready to begin pushing Android 5.1 updates to its flagship Android phones.
Motorola has posted changelogs for the Android 5.1 updates for both the AT&T and T-Mobile/unlocked versions of the Moto X (2nd Gen.) as well as the Moto X (1st Gen.). According to Motorola, Moto X (2nd Gen.) owners will get the ability to swipe away heads-up notifications, the ability to change Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections from Quick Settings, Device Protection, and faster app launch times thanks to improvements in ART.
Meanwhile, owners of the original Moto X will gain Screen Pinning, the same Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection options in Quick Settings, lots of Moto app tweaks, Materal Design UI changes, and more. Considering that the Moto X (1st Gen.) never got updated to Android 5.0, itâ€™s no surprise to see its Android 5.1 update have such a large changelog.
Motorola hasnâ€™t made any announcements about when itâ€™ll begin pushing Android 5.1 to its Moto X models, but now that the changelogs are live, weâ€™re willing to bet that the OTAs arenâ€™t far off. After all, Motorola has been pretty on the ball with its Android updates in the past. If youâ€™ve got a Moto X, be sure to let us know if Android 5.1 hits your device!
