Motorola Rolls out the Android 5.0 Update for the First Gen Moto G

After rolling out a firmware update last week which promised to bring the impending Android 5.0 Lollipop update to the first generation of Motorola Moto G, the device is now receiving an OTA for the lollipop sweetness. Motorola has generally been bang on time when it comes to rolling out the latest Android updates for its device post its return to the personal technology game, largely due to the fact that it runs Vanilla Android out of the box, with very little customizations.


The second generation of Motorola Moto G to has received the Lollipop update in parts of the world and it comes as no surprise that perhaps the hottest selling Motorola device is globally receiving the update now. Motorola updated its blog stating that the update is essential and “Android 5.0  Lollipop is one of the most significant in recent Android history. It improves your experience in many areas including visual style and how you interact with your device.”

The update brings the much spoken of material design as well as performance enhancements. Motorola has listed all the changes on their blog right here, though most of these are in convergence with everything that the other devices receiving the update have got. No major update is expected in any of the Motorola based service post the Android 5.0 OTA. We urge all our readers to make it a point that they have at least 50% battery backup on their smartphones before they attempt the update.
