Google unwraps its Android Lollipop 5.1 update


Lollipop

It turns out the rumors were true – Google has officially taken the wrapper off its Android 5.1 update for Lollipop, with the new software rolling out to devices from today.

The confirmation comes from the Official Android blog, and doesn’t mention the inevitable bug fixes that Lollipop users really want to hear about.

Instead, it focuses on the new features the 5.1 update will deliver to Android users.

A well-featured Lollipop

At the top of the list is support for multiple SIM cards, so phones can be shared between family members of work colleagues.

Security gets a bit of a boost, with Device Protection ensuring your device stays locked down until you enter your Google password, ensuring that a factory reset doesn’t wipe all your important information.

Verizon and T-Mobile customers in the states with a compatible handset like the Nexus 6 will also finally get support for HD Voice.

You’ll also be able to join Wi-Fi networks and control Bluetooth devices from the Quick Settings menu.
