Moto G Google Play edition is next to get Android 5.1


If you’re rocking a Moto G Google Play edition, you’ll soon be rocking Android 5.1 too.

The Moto G GPe is next in line to get its over the air update to Android 5.1, build LMY47M. The update is 171MB in size, and it’ll likely continue to roll out to devices over the coming days. The good news is that if you don’t feel like waiting for the OTA update, the folks at Android Police have uploaded the file that you can sideload right this second.

Before today, we’d only seen Android 5.1 hit a handful of Nexus devices, but now that the Moto G GPe is getting the update, here’s to hoping that we start to see 5.1 hit some other GPe hardware soon too. The update to 5.1 may not be quite as huge as the jump from 4.4 to 5.0 was, but hey, being on the latest version of Android is what having a Nexus or GPe product is all about.
