Just a few days ago, we got word that Motorola was planning on rolling out the update to Android 5.1 Lollipop for a number of its devices sometime soon, and it looks like we’re now one step closer to that coming into fruition. Motorola has just announced that the Android 5.1 Lollipop soak test is now beginning to roll out to the Moto X (2nd Gen.) for users in Brazil. Soak tests usually don’t last too long, so we’ll likely see a wider rollout sometime in the near future. The company also states that it’s working on bringing the update to multiple other devices, so we’ll need to stay tuned for more information.

Alongside the many notable improvements you’ll find in the update to Android 5.1, Motorola has decided to throw in a new Moto Action that should prove quite useful. In addition to being able to launch the camera by twisting your wrist twice, you’ll now be able to chop twice to activate the flashlight, and chop twice again to turn it off. Motorola says it’s the same motion as chopping an onion with a knife. If you need a clearer picture, check out the .gif below.
