Android 5.1 Lollipop Update Starts Rolling Out to Moto E (Gen 1).

Motorola has started rolling out the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the first-generation Moto E.
The Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the dual-SIM enabled Moto E is now available OTA (over-the-air) and comes with build number 23.21.15. Android 5.1  Lollipop is one of the most significant in recent Android history. It improves your experience in many areas including visual style and how you interact with your device.

The Moto E (Gen 1) users will either receive a notification for the OTA update to Android 5.1 Lollipop, or they can also check manually for the update by visiting Settings>About phone>System updates. With either method, users will have to then select ‘Yes, I’m in’, to authorise the download of the update, and then click ‘Install now’. An XDA Developers’ forum member also posted a screenshot of the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the Moto E (Gen 1), showing the build number and changelog.

You can tailor how interruptions behave, choosing to allow all, none, or only priority interruptions. You can personalize what counts as a priority interruption (reminders, events, calls, messages) and even tailor them to be from only contacts you specify. The Downtime setting will allow only priority interruptions during the times and days that you specify. e.g. allow only priority interruptions on the weekend.

Android Lollipop adds native support for allowing trusted devices to keep your phone unlocked (such as your Moto 360, a Bluetooth car kit or headset, etc.). Smart Lock replaces the prior trusted device capability in your Motorola phone. Note that you will need to add your trusted devices back after the transition to Lollipop in the Security settings menu under Smart Lock.


For a successful installation, we recommend installing this update when the battery in your phone is at least 50% charged and you are connected to a Wi-Fi network.

If you have received a notification message for this update:

  1. Select “Yes, I’m in”.
  2. After the software is downloaded, select “Install now”.
  3. After the software is installed, your phone will re-start automatically.
  4. Your phone is now updated with 23.21.15
