AT&T LG G3 getting the Android 5.0.1 update

LG G3 Android 5.0

Last week, we reported about LG’s plans to roll out the Android 5.0 update to the American variants of the LG G3 very soon. The AT&T version of the handset is now receiving the update, making it the first variant in the U.S. to get the coveted update.

We’ve seen Android 5.0 leaking out for the LG G3 before and users can expect to see most of those changes here. Clearly, LG is not too fond of stock Android and has implemented a ton of software features while improving some older functionality with the new update.

The update is rolling out over the air and might take a while before arriving on all devices. So if you’re yet to find it on your AT&T LG G3, you might have to wait a while. You can alternatively try hitting the settings to pull an update manually.

Android 5.0 includes some very nifty changes such as lock screen notifications, faster performance and some much needed security related fixes. Although LG is not maintaining a stock build of Android, the Material Design elements can be seen in many areas here.

Here’s what AT&T had to say about the update:

Today AT&T launched the Android 5.0 “Lollipop” operating system for AT&T customers with an LG G3. The Lollipop update offers you a new bold and colorful interface, with new notification options, longer battery life, increased security against malware and automatic device encryption, settings for multiple device users, a new quick settings drop-down menu, better internet and blue-tooth connectivity, and voice activation even when your screen is off.
