According to the official Android Twitter account, Android 5.0 “Lollipop” has begun rolling out to “most” Nexus devices. As was previously confirmed, the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), and the Nexus 10 will all see the update to 5.0 (Google Play Edition devices too). 

We have yet to see factory images appear, but they should be here shortly, I would imagine, for those who don’t want to wait for an update to show up.

Let us know if your Nexus device sees the update!

If you do see an over-the-air (OTA) update, be sure to capture the .zip file and share it with the community. Here are instructions on how to capture OTA .zip files.

Update:  Here are some specifics on the updates, thanks to Google’s product forums

The over-the-air update for Lollipop is now starting! The update is starting for these devices:

  • Nexus 6: Minor update to address bugs
  • Nexus 9: Minor update to address bugs
  • Nexus 5: Update from KitKat to Lollipop
  • Nexus 7 WiFi (2012 & 2013): Update from KitKat to Lollipop
  • Nexus 10: Update from KitKat to Lollipop

It will also be put up on Android Open Source Project (AOSP). 

Note: The OTA update for 3G/LTE versions of the Nexus 7 2012 and 2013 have not yet started, nor have they started for the Nexus 4!
