As usual it’s taking an annoyingly long time for the latest version of Android to make its way to older devices but it looks like Motorola may finally be gearing up to bring Android 5.0 to the first-generation Moto G. The company ha started sending out messages to users of the smartphone that alludes to a future Android 5.0 update.
Motorola is busy preparing Android 5.0 Lollipop updates for a number of its devices. Users of the first-generation Moto G may have received a message on their device with a message pertaining to “Future updates,” warning that Lollipop may never arrive if a certain step is not taken. A bit of background on this: Motorola recently untethered much of its core software framework to Google Play, allowing the company to push updates to certain important system components without upgrading the entire operating system. But in order for the Moto G and other devices to eventually receive the Lollipop upgrade, an app, Motorola Updates Services must be, yes, updated through the Google Play Store. It sounds meta, and a little confusing, but in the end it’s all in preparation for the next important step: receiving the actual update.
