Android 5.1 starts rolling out to HTC One M8 Google Play edition

We've received some tips pointing to an Android 5.1 rollout to the One M8 GPe, and a number of users on both Reddit and XDA Developers have reported receiving the update as well.

The update, which looks to clock in at just over 244MB large, brings Android 5.1 features such as tweaks to the way notifications interruptions are handled, as well as numerous other little bug fixes and animations and cosmetic changes.

It's unclear how wide the rollout is right now, so it may still be a bit before your One M8 GPe to scores some Android 5.1 love. If you have snagged the update, however, be sure to head on over to our HTC One M8 forums and let us know how the update is treating you.
