Google’s latest Android 5.0.1 release is now reaching Nexus devices over the air
Android 5.0.1 has been available for over a week for a number Nexus devices — but only if you were willing to download the factory images and flash them manually. Now Google’s rolling out its latest Lollipop update — which brings improved stability and performance — over the air.
The Nexus 4, Nexus 6, and Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi only models) — along with the original Moto G Google Play Edition — are first in line for the Android 5.0.1 update, Phandroid reports, while those with a Nexus 5, Nexus 7 LTE, Nexus 9, or Nexus 10 are being forced to wait.
Don’t be too disappointed if your device isn’t in that list, though; this particular Lollipop update brings bug fixes and improvements to performance and stability only, so unless your device is particularly slow or unstable, you’re not really missing out on much at this point.
If your device hasn’t already received an Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade, there’s a good chance it will jump straight to Android 5.0.1 now instead — just like the Google Play Editions of the HTC One M7 and One M8 did.
