Android 5.1 Lollipop Now Rolling out for Android One Users in India
Three months after announcing the Lollipop release, Google pushed out the first Lollipop update all Android One users in India. Now, the company has just officially confirmed that the next Android 5.1 Lollipop update is being rolled out to all Android One users.
Google India has released a cute video confirming this news. The video’s background score is the groovy ’Koi yaha naache naache’ with the signature Android caricatures having a party announcing that ‘things have just got better’ and that ‘Android One (smartphones) upgrade to Lollipop 5.1′.
It is a gradual roll out, so it might take some time before it shows up on your device. You can manually check for an update by visiting the ‘System Upgrades’ section in the Settings Menu. It is recommended to upgrade your device in a strong Wi-Fi connection, with a fully charged battery to prevent inconvenience.
The 5.1 Lollipop update will bring greater system stability, improved RAM management, and fixes for frequent app crashes, Wi-Fi connectivity issues, and issues with Okay Google function among others.
Google’s Android One initiative was launched in India in September with the aim to tap the rural segment and convert them into smartphone users. Google has roped in local vendors like Micromax, Karbonn and Spice with a vision to bring the “pure” Android experience to affordable smartphones.
