Moto X 2nd Gen on AT&T Getting Android 5.1 Update Today

 
AT&T started pushing out an Android 5.1 update for the Moto X 2nd Gen. The update is pushing out to devices right now, carriers version number 23.16.2.en.US and weighs in at 507.7MB’s. 


 

 

The changelog lists the following:
Software Update Includes
  • Upgrade to Android 5.1 Lollipop OS (additional details available from Motorola)
  • Factory Reset Protection
  • Added Ready to Go
  • Updated NameID
  • Updated Moto Connect
  • Updated Moto Migrate
  • Updated Gestures
  • Updated Active Display
  • Updated Voice Defined Triggers and Commands
  • Updated Highlight Reel
  • Updated Authentication
  • Other planned fixes, updates, and enhancements
That is the short list provided by AT&T, and as Droid-Life points out, it is updated on the 1st gen Moto X, not the 2nd Gen. If you look at the wrong device update info, you will see they copy and pasted in the details for the update to the wrong page. It is pretty funny really. However, I can confirm that the update is indeed for the 2nd Gen variance. Motorola lists out a number of other things like bug fixes such as the clock not updating in the status bar, no ringer audio while making an outgoing call, Chrome crashes and more.
If you are sporting a Moto X 2nd Gen on AT&T, be sure to head into your devices settings and check for the software update. Be sure you have well over 50% battery life, a solid Wi-Fi connection and some time to kill for the OTA to download and update. As you can see in the screens above, it will take about 20 minutes to install after it is downloaded. Plus or minus depending on the number of apps you have installed.
