(Update: now live!) Verizon to begin pushing out Android 5.1 update to the Droid Turbo on July 1st

Droid Turbo owners - your wait is almost over! Verizon has just announced that it will begin pushing out the update to Android 5.1 Lollipop on Wednesday, July 1st.

Published onJuly 1, 2015

Update #1 (7/1): Finally, the long-overdue Android 5.1 Lollipop update is now rolling out to Droid Turbo devices. Many users have been reporting that they've gotten the update already, but it still might take a day or two to make its way to all devices.

Start mashing those "Check now" buttons, people! Oh, and be sure to let us know how you're enjoying your first taste of Lollipop.

Update #2 (7/1): We've gotten word from many Droid Turbo owners that for some reason, Motorola didn't include two of the more sought after features normally found in Lollipop -- Guest Mode and Multi-User Support. While Motorola left out this feature from the changelog, Verizon, oddly enough, says these features are present in the update.

We're not sure if these features have been removed from the Droid Turbo for good, or if they'll arrive in a future update. We'll be sure to let you know if we hear anything from Motorola or Verizon regarding this omission.

Original post (6/30): If you’re the proud owner of a Motorola Droid Turbo, your wait is finally almost over. Verizon has just announced that it will begin pushing out the Droid Turbo’s Android 5.1 Lollipop update beginning in the afternoon of Wednesday, July 1st. The update, which Verizon says will bring the device’s software version to 23.11.38, will roll out to devices in stages.

So, what does Android 5.1 bring to the table? Aside from a few new Moto Actions on the Motorola side of things, Android 5.1 will bring performance improvements, a ton of user interface enhancements, factory reset protection and much more. Remember, you’re moving up to Android 5.1 from Android 4.4 KitKat (not 5.0 Lollipop), so this is a pretty huge update. To get the full list of changes, feel free to check out Motorola’s full changelog, as well as a complete Android 5.1 walkthrough from our very own Joe Hindy.
