Android 5.1 for Moto X (2014) comes with something special

Motorola recently announced that it is beginning to push out Android 5.1 Lollipop to the Moto X (2014). Android 5.1 Lollipop fixes a lot of the performance and bug issues in earlier versions of Android 5.0 Lollipop and offers new security features, too.

Motorola is spicing the update up with a bit with another unique feature, however. The company is adding a “chop twice for flashlight” function that allows you to make a chopping motion with the Moto X to turn on the flashlight. Another two-chop motion will turn the flashlight off. Sounds like a pretty convenient tool for when you can’t find your car keys in the dark, though we wonder how many false positives it might create while the Moto X is riding along in your pocket.

It sounds like Motorola is initially starting with a soak test in Brazil before spreading the update to other regions and to carrier devices, but the company usually moves pretty quick with these things.
