If youâ€™re rocking a Moto X (1st Gen.), your wait for Lollipop may soon finally be over.
David Schuster, Motorolaâ€™s Senior Director of Product Management, says that the Android 5.1 update for the Moto X (1st Gen.) is now in â€œTestDriveâ€ in both the U.S. and Latin America. If everything goes smoothly, Schuster says, the update will begin rolling out to everyone â€œin a few weeks.â€ As for why itâ€™s taken so long for the first Moto X to get Lollipop, Schuster explains that some partners arenâ€™t showing the device their full support.
When the Moto X (1st Gen.) does get its Android 5.1 update, itâ€™s going to get a ton of goodies since itâ€™s going there from Android 4.4. The list of new features includes a refreshed and Material Design-ified user interface, Screen Pinning, a new Recent Apps menu, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection options in Quick Settings, and more.
