Android 5.0 Lollipop Now Rolling Out to Nexus Devices (Updated)

The wait is finally over, while it appears that Motorola beat Google to the punch on Tuesday by rolling out Lollipop to the Moto X (2014) and Moto G (2014) first, Google has since confirmed that it, too, is now pushing out the update. The firm took to Twitter to make the announcement, where it said “dessert is served,” and that the rollout has started and will soon be available for “most Nexus devices.”

Google’s developer page still has the factory images for Android 4.4 KitKat for most of the devices at the time this article was published, but we suspect that will be updated shortly. Otherwise, you should find the update available over-the-air by manually checking inside of the settings menu.

Lollipop brings a ton of enhancements and should improve your device from all angles. It was built to extend battery life, even though early versions apparently struggled with that on the Nexus 5, and features support for multiple users, a Material Design makeover with a cleaner UI and more settings options, improved notifications, enhanced security and much more. If you own a Nexus 4, Nexus 5 or one of the Nexus 7 models, you should see the update soon.

Update: Factory images are live now, too.
