Android Wear 5.1.1 update coming around for Moto 360, finally

moto 360 cradleMotorola appears to be bringing up the rear, finally releasing the Android Wear 5.1.1 update for the Moto 360. The news has come out just this morning, a couple of hours ago, via the Android Wear Developers group on Google+.

The roll-out has started today, and as with all such things, it’ll be a staged affair. This means that your watch may not receive the update today, tomorrow, or even this weekend, but usually within a week or so you should see the system update notification arriving on your Moto 360.

If you’ve forgotten what Android Wear 5.1.1 will bring to the Moto 360, take a look at our platform announcement from back in April. Access to WiFi networks, a better system UI and more await you.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
