A few weeks ago all the Nexus family updated to Android 5.1 Lollipop, being the Nexus 9 the latest one. Then it was the turn to Moto X users of first generation who were in Brazil with another soak test, and now, a few days later, it comes to Moto X second generation owners, through the official website of Motorola in the United States. The improvements and changes that the new version will bring the Moto X of both generations are published now. It is likely coming to all terminals of Moto X.
Brazil is again the country chosen for the soak test of Moto X 2nd generation that began to plunge yesterday afternoon. This update will target a small number of terminals that Motorola can easily monitor as a test group. On Motorola’s blog you can see the changelog of the new version for the Moto X 2014. The update to Android 5.1 Lollipop continues to expand this way.
In this version a soak test protection of the device is introduced by entering your Google account, even if the device has been reset into factory image, something we thought would only be available at the Nexus range. The camera software is also improved, which was again improved in the final version to further reduce the image noise in low light conditions. Finally, there are also improvements in reporting and connections via WiFi and Bluetooth.
For Moto X devices for both generations, the update will be available via OTA, ie, over the phone automatically. It will alert you with a notification, then you will have the opportunity to (if you want to) update. It is possible that this notification does not come, but you can check the status manually. To do this you must go to Settings > Phone Info > System updates. With this simple steps, your Moto X 2014 will have an OTA of Android 5.1 Lollipop.
