Last week, Google started rolling out the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the Nexus 7 in order to replace the two older Android Lollipop 5.0.2 and 5.0.1 updates. For the latest line of Nexus smartphones and tablets, the Android 5.1 is quite the worthy upgrade. However, there are certain things that you need to know about the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the Google Nexus 7. During the end of last year, Google released the Android 5.0 Lollipop update which brought new enhancements, features and fixes to Nexus smartphone and tablet users. Sadly, Android 5.0 Lollipop also had a lot of problems and bugs.
Google is starting to fix all the problems and bugs with the earlier version. At first, the company released the Android 5.0.1 update for select Nexus devices. After that, it released the 5.0.2 update for certain Nexus devices including the Nexus 7. Both Google slates were updated to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop in order to fix the persistent problems. Until last week, both these devices remained on the same Lollipop 5.0.2 version.
However, officially, Google’s latest Android Lollipop 5.1 Update is here to replace the older versions. The updates were posted last Monday, and presently the update has started rolling out for select Nexus 7 users. Android 5.1 Lollipop update could finally bridge the gap between the 5.0 version and whatever follows next.
The Android 5.1 update for the Nexus 7 is releasing rather slowly, similar to the updates for Nexus 10 and the Nexus 5. The latest OTA hasn’t been released for the Nexus 7 2012 variants yet. However, it’s an indication that Google is taking its time with this massive bug fixer update. Currently, Google is observing the update closely in order to root out any issues or problems. If everything goes well, the update will start picking up the pace in the future.
