A new report from Ars Technica claims that Motorola has started rolling-out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to some unlocked version of the Moto G (Gen 2), and is 386.7MB in size.

Notably, couple of days back, LG announced the roll-out of Android 5.0 Lollipop update on its LG G3 device, and also claimed that the G3 will be the first device to receive the update.

Now, if we believe the new report, then the Moto G (Gen 2) will become the first smartphone to get the update, and in fact, is ahead of Google’s own Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), and Nexus 10 devices.

Motorola said that users will get a notification for the OTA update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, or they can manually check for the update by going to the Settings>About phone>System updates.

The update will bring lots of new features including the new Material Design UI with fluid animations to new application, along with system themes, colors and widgets, as well.

Post the update, users will be able to access notifications right from the lock screen of their smartphone. Other features Moto G (Gen 2) will receive after the update includes New Interruptions and Downtime Settings, Ambient Display, revamped Motorola Assist, Flashlight option as part of Quick settings, more.
