Motorola Moto G (XT1033) Android 5.0 Lollipop update starts rolling out in India

After much anticipation, Motorola has finally announced that it has started rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop update for its Moto G (XT1033) in India.

Motorola says that the Android Lollipop update will bring an improved experience on the Moto G through an updated interface and a list of new features that Google originally provides through its Material Design language.

With this new language, the update brings several new animation effects, alongside system themes, colors and widgets to give users an enhanced experience.

The Android Lollipop update additionally comes with an updated notification support which allows users to set all their important notifications for the lock screen and to prioritise notifications through setting priority and privacy of each installed app.

Users also have the option to set Downtime settings and Ambient Display settings to get all the important notifications. In addition, Motorola has integrated Motorola Assist into the new Downtime settings to control notifications.

The Android Lollipop update brings a new flashlight option within Quick settings to help users under dark.

The update lets users set up multiple user accounts on their Moto G and also comes with a by default Guest mode to enable users to easily share their smartphone with anyone, without losing their personal data or content. Similarly, there is screen pinning ability which allows users to keep a specific app or screen in view while making other apps disappeared from the phone.

Lastly, Google’s key new features such as an advanced Battery settings panel, Smart Lock for allowing trusted devices and a list of smarter Internet connection features are available right through the new update. Some performance improvements are also being optimised with this new update through the new Android Runtime (ART) which consumes more space on the smartphone.

Motorola recommends that the Moto G should have at least 50 percent charged battery and connected to an active Wi-Fi network before getting the new update.

To install the update, users need to install the latest Motorola Update Services app and then, wait for a notification message which would be available as soon as it will be sent through the servers. Users can also manually check the update availability by going through Settings > About phone > System updates.
