Owners of the LG G3 who have tied themselves to Sprint, your Android 5.0 “Lollipop” update is on the way. Announced this morning through Sprint’s Devices, Apps, and Services blog, the update is rolling out today with “fluid” Material Design animations, Android TV support, more efficient battery usage, notifications on the lock screen, and more.
Sprint didn’t say, but I would imagine the update file is quite large. If you plan to update right away, be sure you have plenty of battery and are on WiFi.
To check for the update, head into Settings>System updates>Update LG software>Check now.
Here is the list of changes, according to Sprint:
- Material Design for fluid animation, multicolored themes and 3D views
- More efficient battery use
- Android™ TV support
- Notifications on the lock screen and customizable options with prioritized notifications for events, reminders, messages and calls
