Android 5.0 Lollipop update begins landing on Moto G (2014)

Google Android 5.0 LollipopIt looks like the LG G3 is not the only device receiving an Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade this week. Somewhat suprisingly, not only is this second device not a Google Nexus device but it’s not even a flagship device. Instead, the honour goes to the second generation Moto G which Motorola announced back in September. Ars Technica reports that the update, weighing in at 386.7MB, has landed on their unlocked Moto G (2014) unit.

With its devices running a near-stock version of Android, Motorola has in the past been among the first manufacturers to roll out Android updates to its devices. As expected from an update that is nearly identical to that of the vanilla version of Android, the change log calls out very similar changes: Material Design user interface, “Project Volta” battery life improvements and the introduction of multi-user support on smartphones (a feature available on tablets since Android 4.2).

There is no official word from Motorola that the rollout has begun so it may well be that Motorola is running a small-scale rollout to ensure that there are no issues before it begins a larger one. There is also no word yet on when the update will begin rolling out to other Motorola devices, including the very similar first-generation Moto G.

Has anyone else with a Moto G (2014) received the update? Let us know below.
