If you own a Galaxy S5 and live in Austria, the Czech Republic or Italy, you may want to pin your ears back as Samsung has just started pushing out the long-awaited Android 5.0. update to the handset. In terms of added functionality, this upgrade transports the latest build of Lollipop to the handset, in addition to a truckload of bug fixes and stability improvements.
All the changes you’d expect to find are bundled into this upgrade, including support for multiple accounts, improved notifications, a smoother multitasking experience and the recently-announced Material Design guidelines.
As is customary with all manufacturer updates, the upgrade is being rolled out in stages, but if you don’t feel like waiting for a notification confirming that it’s ready for your device, you can search for the update manually. To do so simply follow the four steps below:
Open the Settings app
Scroll to the bottom and tap on “About Device”
Hit “System Updates”
Tap on “Check for update”
