It has merely been a month since Google released Android 5.0 Lollipop for its Nexus devices. Later the update found its way to Google Play Edition units. A few OEMs have also released the update for their smartphones but so far majority are still going through the various processes involved in getting a software update ready before it can be released. Now it is being reported that Android 5.1 release will take place in February.
Google could release its first update to Android 5.0 Lollipop even before many smartphones and tablets receive the new OS. According to AndroidPit, Android 5.1 is due in the early months of 2015. In addition to numerous bug fixes and minor tweaks, are improvements for notifications, connections and overall stability. Perhaps the most noteworthy detail outed in the alleged change log is the return of silent mode. Absent in Android 5.0, this may be among the only feature addition most users notice. It’s not uncommon for Google to issue maintenance tweaks and minor updates in the months following a major Android release. With so many different Android handsets configured in different ways, a few kinks are expected and unavoidable.
