Moto G 2014 receives Android 5.0 Lollipop update

There has been a lot of rumors and speculations these last days about which manufacturer would be the first to update their flagship device. A few days ago, LG announced that the G3 will receive Android 5.0 Lollipop this week, and Motorola had already started the soaked tests for the Moto X.

Finally, Motorola has won the race, although not with the device everybody expected. Even befor the Nexus family received Android 5.0, the first device to receive the Lollipop update is the Moto G (2014 Edition).

The update is currently available to the unlocked US version of the device, and it will reach the others models soon after. The new version brings all the features that you can expect from Android 5.0 Lollipop, such as the Material Design, the lock screen notifications, the multi-user support and the improvements on the battery life.

Motorola has detailed in their website the full list of the changes that we can expect to get with the new software version.


If you are among the lucky ones to have this device, make sure to have the battery at least 50% charged and use a Wi-Fi network before starting the download. If you have already received the notification, just follow the usual steps to download the file. If not, you can check the availability of the update from the “About phone” menu, under the Settings icon. Once there, select “System update” and tap on “Yes, I’m in” if the updated is available.

In any case, once the software has been downloaded, select “Install now” and wait until the phone re-start. Now you should be enjoying the new Android 5.0 Lollipop.
