Moto G (1st Gen) will start receiving Android 5.0.2 Lollipop

Moto G 1st Gen Android Lollipop

It has been a long time coming for Motorola’s Moto G (1st Gen). After Motorola has promised prompt updates and nearly a half a year after Android Lollipop was released to the masses, the original Moto G will start to receive the latest (sort of) version of Android. That means it will get all that comes along with Material Design.

The update has officially started hitting the airwaves, so it will hit devices in stages. If you haven’t received it yet, it will come, it just takes time. If you are curious as to what it will bring to your device, the main things are Material Design, updated notifications, re-designed recent apps, and many other features. If you would like to take a look at the full changelog, you can do so here.

It’s good to see they are completely skipping Android 5.0/5.0.1, but it would have been nice to see them jump to Android 5.1.
