The Android Wear 5.1.1 update is currently being pushed out to supported Android smartwatches, and those that have Wi-Fi support built in will see the biggest enhancement. The Motorola Moto 360 is one of the four smartwatches that will have full Wi-Fi capabilities which allow users to send and receive messages without having to be tethered to a smartphone.
The long-waited Motorola Moto 360 Android 5.1.1 update is coming, but it’s just been confirmed that it won’t be here anytime soon. The Android 5.1.1 update for the Moto 360 will be delayed due to some software issues that is causing performance problems.
Motorola made the delay official via a tweet, with no official release date given. Motorola and Google are said to be working hard on resolving the current issues, and we’re hoping the update will be pushed out to the 360 by the end of the month. It was earlier reported that 5.1.1 by now would have been pushed out and those waiting for it are starting to grow impatient.
Smartwatches that don’t have Wi-Fi support built in will get the update, but will still be unable to connect other than through Bluetooth. They will still see improvements with material design, performance, and settings options that will still enhance the user experience.
