The LG G3 is finally getting the latest version of Android, starting with AT&T’s variant of the flagship phone. The company confirmed the news to Android Central, and you should be able to upgrade your device right now.

LG and AT&T are skipping straight to Android 5.0.1. The Lollipop update introduces a colorful new look, enhanced notifications, a redesigned quick settings pull-down menu and support for multiple user accounts. It should also mean longer battery life and better security against any potential malware.

To grab the update you’ll need to connect to Wi-Fi and make sure at least 689.53MB of space is cleared up. Then go to Settings>General>About phone>Software Update to get started.

Hopefully it’s not too long before the rest of the U.S.  carriers push out their own update for the LG G3. A recent leak from Sprint suggests it could be ready to ship Lollipop by Feb. 16, while Verizon and T-Mobile may not be far behind either.
