Motorola officially announces Lollipop updates for Moto X and Moto G

Motorola android-l-update
After releasing the soak test for Lollipop on the Moto X and Moto G on the weekend to selected users. Motorola has today officially announced their Lollipop update will begin rolling out for selected versions of the Moto X and Moto G.

Motorola has selected the Moto X (2nd Gen.) “Pure Edition”, Moto G (2nd Gen.) US GSM and Moto G (2nd Gen.) Global GSM retail versions sold in the US to receive the update first, but are sure to roll it out to other handsets quite soon. The update to devices has already begun but will be rolling out in stages. The update includes :

A new look and feel. Google brings its all-new Material Design to life with a bold, new visual style. The new user interface is designed to enable better, more natural touch screen interactions and introduces vivid new colors, typography, and edge-to-edge imagery to make using your phone more fluid.

Your device, your rules. Catch up with notifications on your lock screen and even dismiss them without unlocking. New “Downtime” and “Interruption” settings also allow you to decide what people and what notifications get through at times that you choose.

Share your device. You know that moment when your kid plays with your phone or a friend needs to borrow it? Use “Guest” mode or another account you’ve set up to share your device. You can also pin a view to limit the user to a particular application.

Let there be light. Shine a light by using the new flashlight in Quick Settings. Just swipe down with two fingers from the status bar to see it.

Battery saver. The Battery settings panel now shows an estimated projection for how much time you have left even while you’re charging. You can also enable a new battery saver mode that will save power by reducing performance and most background data operations to extend your battery life.

Motorola has more information on Lollipop on their support page, if you want any more information. You can also check out our Lollipop Tour for the highlights of what you can expect.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

On the US Motorola website, and with ShopMate from Australia post. You’ll have to Google the web addresses as I can’t link.
