If you live in the US, Canada, or Brazil, you may have woke up this morning seeing the on-screen install option.

1st Gen Motorola Moto X Gets Android 5.1 in US, Canada, and Brazil

Earlier in month we reported the 2nd Gen Moto X is getting 5.1 from Android 4.4.4. Motorola is one of the manufacturers to skip Android 5.0 and move straight to 5.1 due to many glitches and bugs reported with the initial Lollipop update.

Of course, it’s recommended to update to 5.1 over a Wi-Fi connection for the best outcome and significantly less time, and it’s also best to update your handset prior to updating. The update brings Google’s Material Design, Quick Setting improvements, improved battery efficiency, flashlight option, Recent Apps screen, option to create more than one user account, and much more.
