If you’ve got a Moto 360 and haven’t yet gotten your Android 5.0 update, that should change today.
Motorola says that the Moto 360’s Lollipop update should hit 100 percent of users today, December 15. The update actually began rolling last week, but as is usually the case with software updates, this one has been staggered across several days. The Moto 360’s update will bump it up to build LWX48P, Android 5.0.1, and will include the following tweaks:
- Android L: Updates Android Wear to the latest platform for consistency across Android devices for both consumers and developers.
- 3rd Party Watch Faces: Choose from a variety of public watch faces available through the Google Play Store. Watch faces can be selected and configured through the Android Wear app on your phone or directly on your Moto 360. Developers can leverage application programming interfaces (APIs) to create a watch face and retrieve calendar and notification data.
- Undo button for card dismissal: When a card is swiped away it will remain available to undo for a short time after dismissal.
- Quick Settings: Swiping down from the top brings new settings that include Theatre mode, Sunlight mode (temporarily maximize brightness), managing interruptions, and easier access to deeper Settings. Interruptions choices made on your Moto 360 automatically change the Interruptions setting on your Lollipop-based phone.
- Theater Mode: Screen remains off unless turned on by a press of the side button.
- Battery & Storage Stats: The Android Wear application will now allow you to obtain more information about Moto 360 battery performance including a projection of time left and a breakdown of usage by applications. You can also see how much storage space remains - which is helpful when planning offline music.
Obviously the Lollipop update for Android Wear devices is a big one, and it’s good to see the Moto 360 already getting its update. Once your Moto 360 is updated, you can head to the watch face section of Google Play and find your favorite face!
