Now that Lollipop has graced the world with its Material design beauty, manufacturers are updating their devices one by one to the latest version of Android. We’ve seen Samsung, LG, HTC, and Motorola start updating new devices already. But what about older devices?

Motorola proves itself once again to be the king of updates by rolling out the Lollipop update for the first generation Moto G, at least in one country. Moto G owners in India should be receiving the update now. Considering that the Moto G is over a year old and a “mid range” device, it’s a bit surprising to see it being updated so quick. But we’ve come to expect this from Motorola by now.

The company does warn that there is no going back from this update. Once you’re on Lollipop, you cannot downgrade to KitKat (though we can’t imagine why you’d want to). So download the update and let us know how you like it!
