Second-generation Moto X and G owners rejoice: Android Lollipop is on its way to your phone. Motorola is proclaiming the Pure Edition will be first out of the gate, with other models getting Lollipop once it gets the go-ahead from the carriers. The Moto G already has a release notes page, so that could be hitting your device anytime.

These updates are starting now, but the phased rollout can take time, so it may be a day or two before it hits your device. Either way, you’re still way ahead of your Nexus-using friends, who have yet to get such news even though they probably bought the phone directly from Google.

It also trumps LG, which claimed to be first with Lollipop for the G3, but it hasn’t quite started the rollout yet. It's coming this week, and to be fair, a few days' difference doesn't really matter. Both companies deserve kudos for moving so quickly on the latest Android OS.

Why this matters: Motorola is sticking to its promise to rapidly deliver Android updates. Hopefully these moves are the trickle before a deluge of Lollipop updates, as nearly all major phone manufacturers have promised rapid Android Lollipop updates for their most recent phones.
