Lollipop OTA update for the Nexus family

It’s finally here. If you have waiting for the new Android 5.0 Lollipop, your waiting is over. Google has started to roll out the OTA update for most of the Nexus family. As usual, the update is rolling out gradually, so it might take some time before it reaches your device.

Google’s product forums has detailed the list of devices that are going to get the update in the next days (including a minor update for the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9):

Nexus 6: Minor update to address bugs.
Nexus 9: Minor update to address bugs.
Nexus 5: Update from KitKat to Lollipop.
Nexus 7 WiFi (2012 & 2013): Update from KitKat to Lollipop.
Nexus 10: Update from KitKat to Lollipop.


Google also reminds that the updates for the 3G/LTE versions of the Nexus 7 2012 and 2013 are going to take a little longer, and the same goes for the Nexus 4.

The factory images and the binary files has also been published, so if you don’t want to wait for the official notification before installing the new software, you can always flash Android 5.0 Lollipop directly from those files.

All the manufacturers have been working hard to release the update as soon as possible, with LG announcing the OTA for the G3 this week and Motorola releasing the OTA update for the Moto G Second Edition even before than Google announced the offial update for the Nexus devices.

This new Android version has raised a lot of expectations, so if you are a lucky owner of a Nexus device, you can finally have a taste of the new sweet software.
