If you’re the owner of a Motorola Moto E (2nd Gen.) on the Verizon network, you should be in for a sweet treat sometime soon. Big Red has just begun pushing out an update to Android 5.1 Lollipop, carrying build number 23.11.17. This new version of Android brings some user interface improvements including a tweaked quick settings menu and new interruption controls that will help prevent missed alarms. The update also brings notification volume control access and factory reset protection to help stop hackers from stealing your information. It should be noted that the Verizon document doesn’t specify how big the update is, so you’ll probably want to be connected to a Wi-Fi network before downloading.
