Motorola begins rolling out Lollipop to Moto G in India and the US

Motorola has announced on Google+ today that the company has started rolling out Lollipop for the Moto G in the US and India. The company notes that this is a phased rollout, but should you own the affected Android smartphones in the mentioned regions, at least you'll be aware of the imminent update hitting your device.

The second generation Moto G is the device grabbing Lollipop in the US, while both generations of the handset are being updated in India. The company recently teased the update, which would be hitting 2013 and 2014 devices soon enough. If you happen to own the mid-range device, be sure to be on the lookout for the update notification.

  • Lol tell me about it! Posted via the Android Central App
  • My 2014 Moto G was updated to Lollipop 5.0.2 on 01/22/15. My Nexus 5 is still at 5.0.1 so the Moto is one step ahead of the Nexus.
  • My Moto G 2014 (XT1068) still don't get update to Lollipop and i have 4.4.4 ;/
  • Alrighty then.
  • Its definitely ahead of Nexus 7 LTE..
    grumble grumble ;)
  • Can I say, this is just an awesome device. Can't believe I paid $179 for it.. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Agreed. I just picked one up a week or so ago (Moto G LTE version) from my carrier as a points reward . I didn't really need another phone but it was free so I got it and set it up with most of the apps I use regularly. Still have half of my available space left on the 8 GB device. I have no pictures or music on it but I can get up to a 32GB card for it if I want to do that. Excellent phone for the $$. Posted via the Android Central App
  • MOTO X 2013 is last? Nice.... Happy for the moto G people though! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yeah what the deuce. I bought the developer edition motox for a reason. Haha. Oh well. I'm guessing this means it's not far behind. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have the Moto X 2014 with 5.0 and you should be happy they're waiting to push the update to you. It's been full of bugs unfortunately. You'll be getting 5.0.2 most likely. Posted via the Android Central App
  • What bugs have you seen? I'm on the Pure Edition Moto X with 5.0 and haven't really noticed any. Interested in what I should be looking for.
  • Two reasons the Moto X is last. 1) The 2013 and 2014 Moto G have similar hardware to each other, making a 2013 port easier. 2) The Moto G grossly outsold the Moto X, even when you add in the similar in hardware Droid phones on Verizon. That makes the Moto G a higher priority. When a phone is new, it gets all of the updates, even the buggy ones (2014 Moto X). When it's older, it waits for the stable updates. I'm OK with this arrangement.
  • So did I. I bought the same dev edition GSM as my first Android device about a month back. I got so tired of Apple. Loving this phone Posted via the Android Central App
  • Now I got lollipop 5.0 update, but I didn't installed it.will I get 5.0.2 update to my mobile..plzz reply,becoz should I install 5.0 r I should w8 for 5.0.2.

  • You are very impatient. So I would recommend to wait for the 5.0.3 update.
  • Or 5.0.4 Posted via Android Central App on The Nexus 5
  • I would hold out for 6.0!
  • install it.. you will only get 5.0.2 after you install 5.0
  • 7.0 N is gonna be pretty nice, you should wait for that Posted via the Android Central App

  • Got the update on my moto g 2014 in Kolkata India Posted via the Android Central App
  • My poor neglected turbo :(
  • I feel your pain. I bought the Turbo thinking it would get faster updates than the other Verizon phones. I wanted the Nexus, but it's been out of stock
  • There are 2 Photos icon after the update Posted via the Android Central App
  • I had the same problem...what I did was first I unistalled google+ update from play store after that updated it back to the latest update then restart your moto g. hope it works for you.
  • Getting the update right now and can't wait for it to install! =D Posted via the Android Central App
  • The 5.0.2 update for moto g2 is pretty... It was weird at first, I reset my phone and it restored after the reset... Now the phone is nice... It took the whole morning but it was worth it... It is smoother then kit kat... Not faster... The update is more a ui change than anything else. But the best thing for the moto g is the free ram... On 5.0.2 you always have over 450mb free ram... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Since the article mentioned "India and US", I presume this concerns the GSM version.
  • Meanwhile nexus 5 users are still running 5.0.1, and having too many issues. Think its time for Cyanogenmod. Posted via Android Central App
  • If you don't want issues and instability, stay away from CM12 for now. You can't even change the lock screen wallpaper without editing system files! Posted via the Android Central App
  • CM12 is nowhere near ready for prime time. If you just want to get out of buggy Lollipop then get CM11. Posted via Android Central App
  • More beta testers! Yay.
  • Indonesia got the lollipop love by moto too!! Yeahh
  • I just updated my moto g to 5.0.2 it looks nice but I am used to of ' no pass code ' in lock screen which is not an option in this update(little annoying personally). I am accidently opening everything except what I want to open I guess I need to spend sometime with it.
  • My wife moto g received the update 5.0.2 last night. Posted via AC app from my amazing Moto X
  • My wife has a 2013 Moto G, and I'm still standing by for the update for hers.
  • Any of you guys getting the update in the US on Boost?
  • Received system update notice to 502 from 444 this morning. Moto g xt1063 ;-) Posted via the Android Central App
  • what about android l from moto g 1st gen in ireland and uk really sick of waiting now
  • I got the update on the 22 and I am very happy with it
    I live in Israel so that good that I got the update :) Posted via the Android Central App
  • In India I guess not everyone is getting 5.0.2.. Some are getting only 5.0... Buy stilll congrats to all who has got the update finally and so cheers to our new Android life...
  • I have a 2nd gen Moto G I use for my AT&T Gophone. I upgraded to 5.0.2 today, and now I have no connection for calls. It says "Emergency Calls Only". I have plenty of money in my GoPhone account and it was working before the update. I have only had it a few weeks - how do I fix this?
  • Nevermind. My husband went to the AT&T store this morning to get a new SIM card for his phone, and instead the AT&T guy deactivated my old SIM and put the SIM for my number in my husband's phone. I just figured it was the update. Grrrrr......
  • Did anyone receive Lollipop on HTC One M8? Mine is not a GPe edition but I got 5.0 2 days ago, I wonder why AC didn't cover this as news. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Other sites say this is just for the 2nd Gen Moto G in the U.S., 1st and 2nd Gen in India. I am more than happy to wait with 4.4.4 until they get the bugs out of Lollipop. I am hopeful that 5.0.2 does that.
  • Why not an update for 2013 Moto G in the US? That ticks me off! Moto G Posted via Android Central App
  • Got the update last night on my Moto G 2014(2nd gen) via Net10(AT&T tower) and the only bug so far where my APN settings in hangouts for SMS/MMS got changed but was an easy fix sense I have done it before and the official SoundCloud app does not close out correctly. I will report back if I come across anything else. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'm from Indonesia and i got the update yesterday evening. I gotta say the lollipop update makes my moto g 2013 a lot and i mean a lot faster. But i did notice a little lag on some animation like closing the app drawer and sometimes when opening an app it lags on the slide up animation.
    It's a little hiccup but doesn't bother me that much since the speed it offers is totally worth it. Also another bug on auto brightness. It blinks on me and when i slide the bar to reduce it, it dims it so much you can barely see the screen.
    Week that's all the bug i can find right now. Ouw almost forgot, i also notice that this morning my battery indicator showed that it's charging but i already unplugged it but it's fine now.
    Well that's all i see for the bugs. Tell me what you guys see. Posted via the Android Central App
