New Delhi: Motorola has started rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the first-generation Moto G - aka Moto G (2013), Moto G (XT1033), and Moto G (Gen 1) - in India.
The Android 5.0 Lollipop for the XT1033 (dual SIM variant) is now available OTA (over-the-air) and comes as build number 220.21.16.en.03.
The updates are rolled out in a phased manner and users will either receive a notification for the update or can check manually by going to Settings>About Phone>System updates, and will have to authorize the download. With either method, users will have to then select 'Yes, I'm in', to authorise the download of the update, and then click 'Install now'.
Given the large file size it is advisable that users plug their phone to the charger for the process. Also doing so over Wi-Fi is best.
An XDA Developers' forum member also posted a screenshot of the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Moto G (Gen 1), showing the build number and changelog.
Last month, the company officially announced the OTA rollout of the latest Android update for the Moto G (Gen 2) and Moto X (Gen 2) smartphones.
