The soak test of Android 5.1 for the Moto X (2nd gen) on Verizon must have gone well, because Verizon approved the update (version 23.16.3) for all this afternoon. They posted release notes for the update to their support site, which is almost always a sign that they are about to press “Go!” on the rollout.
As a recap, in Android 5.1, you get easier controls over WiFi networks and Bluetooth connections through quick toggles, new Interruption controls, tweaked volume control access, and factory reset protection.
If you were hoping for VoLTE, HD Voice, and simultaneous voice and data, you will be disappointed. None of that made it into this update for some reason.
To check for the update, head into Settings>About phone. If it’s not there, expect it within the next day or so.
Let us know if you get it!
