Owners of the original Moto G are now receiving their much-anticipated Lollipop upgrade. The release makes Motorola’s most popular smartphone one of just a small few handsets released in 2013 that are already running Google’s latest Android software.

Rolling out to users in India first, Lollipop for the 2013 Moto G is essentially the same software that started reaching the newer 2014 Moto G last month. Users get a Material Design makeover the way Google intended it; without any third-party tweaks; as well as lock screen notifications, improved multitasking, and Smart Lock, which automatically disables lock screen security when your Android Wear device is nearby.

User can also look forward to Ambient Display, a flashlight toggle in the Quick Settings menu, Motorola Assist, and significant performance and battery life improvements. All of these things make Lollipop the Moto G’s biggest update yet. It also means this is a big download, so you’ll want to get it over Wi-Fi rather than a cellular connection.

Although this update hasn’t been spotted in other markets yet, it won’t be long before Motorola pushes it out elsewhere; providing no issues are found.
