Along with a bump to Android 5.1 and VoLTE support, this update includes Device Protection, which is Google’s new way to keep your device safe if it’s stolen. The feature will keep your phone locked, even if the person that took it is able to wipe it.
If you’ve got a Nexus 6 on T-Mobile, you can check for this update by going into Settings > About phone > System Updates > Check now.
Be sure to let us know when the update hits your device!
