Testing is underway for the Moto X 2nd gen Android 5.1 Lollipop update, and a changelog has already been issued.
User of the Moto X started to receive the Android 5.0 update only a short time after Google Nexus devices, and it appears that Motorola is intending to keep up the good work. It’s reported that soak testing for Android 5.1 on the 2014 Moto X is already underway, and looking at the changelog we can see that this update will be a big deal for owners of the handset.
The update provides improved stability and covers a multitude of areas such as notifications and interruptions, head-up notifications, quick settings, the camera, device protection, the lockscreen, and performance. It also offers a multitude of bug fixes, just a few of them being for WiFi connection issues, the clock in the status bar, problems with SMS messages, Bluetooth, SIM issues and many more.
