Earlier part of the month December 2014, many sites had reported that Moto G first generation phones in India have started receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop update. Later, on further exploring, we realized that it was a mere soak test where some active Moto G owners, from the official Motorola forum, were chosen to get the update. Now, it is confirmed that finally Moto G users, both 1st gen and 2nd gen, have started obtaining the Android 5.0 Lollipop update via OTA(Over-The-Air).
It was speculated that mass roll out of android lollipop for Moto G India will begin by last month end (December 2014). Anyways, Moto G Indian users are finally happy to receive the Android Lollipop for Moto G. It is always “Better late than never”. But, there are still a bunch of cautious people who are not readily willing to go for the update as some of the users are reported to be unhappy over the Android Lollipop experience.

According to Motorola’s tweet regarding ‘Android Lollipop for Moto G’, it is not a pure mass roll out. Instead, it will happen in phases. So, it is likely that, some Moto G users will have to wait still for the Android Lollipop 5.0.2 update. And, as of now, it seems that Moto E users will have to still wait for the Lollipop update. However, if you still haven’t received the update notification, you can manually check whether the Lollipop update is available for you phone. For the same, you can go to Settings menu, followed by About Phone and then System Updates.
It seems that update roll out depends on your firmware version (eg. XT1064). So some firmwares to yet to be pushed with Android Lollipop 5.0.2 updates. As aforementioned, it is rolling out in stages. So, be sure to have patience and be happy that Motorola keeps up the promise of providing Android updates.
