Lollipop, lollipop, lollipop. That’s what everyone is talking about this week, and for good reason. The Android 5.0 update finally began reaching Nexus devices, while the latest Nexus handset finally started shipping to preorder participants. That and more in this week’s look at the best from Android Forums.
If you own a recent Nexus device (or the Moto X Pure Edition) you got an extra special treat this week: Android 5.0 Lollipop. Nexus 7 and Nexus 5 owners are among the lucky ones, but others like those with the Nexus 10 and Nexus 4 are still awaiting the OTA update. Share your thoughts on Google’s last platform upgrade or commiserate with others left out of the initial round of updates.
Nexus 6 shipping status
Speaking of Lollipop, one of the first devices to ship with the latest Android version is the Nexus 6, and its on its way to those that took part in the initial preorder. Some have already received their tracking numbers while others might be the victims of some serious supply constraints (that may or may not have to do a current labor crisis at the Port of Los Angeles). What’s the status on yours?
Google Hangouts or Messenger?
Google can’t seem to make up its mind when it comes to its preferred messaging service, so we don’t blame you if you haven’t either. For a while, it seemed as though Hangouts was destined to take over as the default app for SMS and other messaging services in Android, but then Google dropped their new Messenger app on Google Play. Choose your side, but don’t be surprised if Google flips the script yet again a few months down the road.
