Motorola Moto 360 finally beginning to receive update to Android 5.1.1
The newest version of Google’s wearable OS has already rolled out to most Android Wear devices over the past few weeks, but the Moto 360’s update was unfortunately delayed due to certain performance issues. [related_videos title=”Related Videos” align=”right” type=”custom” videos=”575301,526866,524522,608623″] It’s been a long time coming, but the update to Android 5.1.1 is finally beginning to roll out to the Motorola Moto 360, according to a recent Google+ post from Developer Advocate for Google, Wayne Piekarski. The Google employee states that since OTA updates roll out to users sporadically over a few days’ time, it may take a little while for all users to receive the update.
As a reminder, the update to Android 5.1.1 brings a ton of new features, including the option to set always-on applications, new gestures for scrolling through cards, and a much more refined contacts/app menu. The update also brings Wi-Fi support, allowing compatible devices to receive notifications, as long as your watch and your phone are both connected to a Wi-Fi network.
If you own a Moto 360 and would like to check for the update manually, head to Settings>About>System updates. Once you receive the update, be sure to let us know how you like it!
