Google has reportedly started seeding Android 5.1 Lollipop OTA (Over-The-Air) to its device Nexus 5. However, the upgraded version of the software is yet to come to Nexus 5 users in India.

The search-engine giant has started rolling out Android 5.1 Lollipop OTA update measuring about 220.7MB to LG Nexus 5 devices and it would be done in phases across the world, according to a report by GSM Arena.

The report went on to say that it comes with Device Protection that "keeps your device locked even after factory reset. Only after the owner signs in, the device can be unlocked." 

The upgraded version of Android 5.0.1 Lollipop is also said to have fixed bugs like Wi-Fi connectivity issue, duplicate SMS sending glitch, enhancements to sending MMS messages, and improved HD voice-calling. The Nexus 5 currently runs on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop.

The report of Android 5.1 Lollipop OTA Update came a few days after Google released the factory image (manual downloadable file) of the firmware for developers and enthusiasts.

However, Android 5.1 Lollipop OTA Update is yet to come to India, and it could be the case in several other countries too. Nexus 5 users can expect the software update anytime and could take even days as it is being reportedly rolled out in phases.

How to Install Android 5.1 Lollipop OTA Update on Nexus 5:

Google Nexus 5 users should ideally get software update notification if Android 5.1 Lollipop is being rolled out in their region. Download begins once users tap 'I'm in' option and then select 'Install now.' The device will restart automatically once installation is complete and the 5.1 Lollipop will start running.

One can also manually check the availability of new software by going to – 'Settings' >> 'About phone' >> 'System update' >> 'Check For Update.
