Android 5.1 Lollipop starts seeding to Moto G LTE
Users of the 2014-released Motorola Moto G LTE smartphone have started receiving an upgrade to Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, a forum post at XDA Developers suggests.
Android Police confirms that the update is seeding for unlocked Moto G LTE models in the United States via over-the-air (OTA) connection. As a side note, the software arrives with a build number of 21.11.56.peregrine_retus.retus.en.US so you can head over you phone’s Settings menu and Check For Updates if you don’t have your Automatic Updates set to On.
Here’s the official changelog for the Moto 360 LTE Android 5.1.1 update:
The latest Android 5.1 OS update fixes known issues and brings along features present in the older Android 5.0. They are as follows
- Notifications and improvements: Blocks interruptions until the next alarm. You can choose to enter a scheduled downtime early. Add icons to the volume settings panel that match those that will show on the status bar. You can also alter notification volume controls while media is playing. With the volume controls showing, a tap on the bell icon will bring up notification volume controls.
- Heads-up notifications: In addition to dismissing a heads-up notification, you can now swipe it up to remove it from your screen. It will remain in your notifications tray and you can dismiss it later.
- Quick notifications: You can quickly select different Wi-Fi access points or different paired Bluetooth devices with a new pull-down menu on each tile. Conditional settings tiles that only show if you use the feature – like Invert Colors or Hotspot – can now be hidden via a long-press on the tile.
- Device protection feature: You can quickly select different Wi-Fi access points or different paired Bluetooth devices with a new pull-down menu on each tile. Conditional settings tiles that only show if you use the feature – like Invert Colors or Hotspot – can now be hidden.
- New lockscreen: If you have enabled Ambient Display, the minimum swipe distance has increased to reduce accidental interactions.
