T-Mobile launches update tracker for Android devices

If you're a T-Mobile customer, tracking updates to your Android device just got a whole lot easier. The magenta carrier recently debuted a web portal where customers can easily track the progress of updates coming to their phone.

T-Mobile Update Tracker

The website sorts the updates by specific devices, and provides information on which of the three following stages each device is on:

  • Stage 1: T-Mobile and the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update.
  • Stage 2: During this stage the device will go through T-Mobile certification process testing to make sure you get the best quality software possible.
  • Stage 3: The software has been approved to launch and is now available.

Upon clicking on a specific device, you'll be presented with the current update stage, along with links to view the device's topic page or ask a question about that particular phone.

Overall, the tool looks to be an incredibly handy and transparent way of communicating the update process. If you'd like to check it and see if your device is any closer to scoring some sweet, sweet Android 5.0 Lollipop, you can hit up the source link below.
