Australian Moto G 2013 is now receiving Lollipop update

By Daniel Tyson

Great news for owners of the original Motorola Moto G, your Lollipop is on its way. We’ve received several reports from users advising that their handset is now receiving the prompt to download Lollipop.

The Lollipop update being delivered is in fact the 5.0.2 update, which includes a number of fixes from the original Android 5.0 release. The update brings all the Material Design goodness, new notification system and security updates; there’s also those absolutely sexy new animations but best of all, you’ll keep all the great Motorola software functions which integrate so well with stock Android.

The update is only hitting the original Moto G at this stage, with no word on when the Moto G 4G or Moto G 2014 will receive the update, but hopefully it won’t be too long.

Have your received an update on your phone? Send us a screenshot of the prompt to update and ‘About Phone’ menu, as well as some info on which model and where you purchased it.

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.

  • I was looking forward to getting home and updating my wife's handset. Alas, the 4G model isn't included yet. A lengthy delay, given it's basically vanilla Android anyway.

  • I'm an Android nerd with a Moto G and can't update it to Lollipop as it's the 4G variant. Aren't they practically the exact same phone?

    This has so far been a pretty long wait for a company with a reputation for fast OS updates. It isn't like they have to drastically modify Android or anything.

    • The 4g support does mean changes are made in the software making it different that orignal and you will need to wait a little longer.(the change is about the same from the original moto g to the 2nd gen

  • downloaded and installed for 3 days... all good so far ;) - nice new lock screen notifications is the thing you notice first.
