Just last week, reports of Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Moto 360 began surfacing on various devices. While a lucky few are currently rocking the update, some of us have been left holding our limp Moto 360’s in our sweaty palms incessantly checking for the update. The wait will conclude tonight, according to Motorola. Motorola says that the update will make its way to all Moto 360 units by the end of the day, December 15th.
Let’s hope Motorola is right about this one, Lollipop on the Moto 360 looks awesome. Check out the changelog below for more details about the update.
This Moto 360 software update is for all users. Changes include:
|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.|
