Moto X 2014

The wait is over for owners of the AT&T Moto X 2nd gen. as the network giant is now rolling out Android 5.1 to devices over the air. Users should be seeing the notification for the available update either today or very soon.

Android 5.1 is the small but impactful update to 5.0 Lollipop that should solve a number of problems, as well as increasing system performance and battery life. The Quick Settings menu is improved too with new animations for toggling certain actions as well as opening a quick menu when switching WiFi networks and Bluetooth connections.

The system update also improves volume controls on the phone, bringing better interruption controls when playing media. Also, exclusive to Moto X owners, comes the “chop” gesture, allowing the user to perform a chopping motion with the phone to activate the flashlight, similar to the wrist-twisting gesture that launches the camera.
