It's been quite some time since Google officially launched its massively-anticipated and highly-prioritized Android Lollipop update as the successor to Android KitKat.
However, there are many smartphones awaiting the official rollout of the update from its respective makers. But it seems the wait for the same for Moto X (2014) users is almost over.
According to reports, owners of the 2014 Moto X are beginning to receive soak test invites. Several users of the handset have reported that the invites are starting to roll out. Though there is no talk about what the soak test is intended for, it is highly possible that a Lollipop update for the smartphone is in the pipeline.
Available currently to the owners of the second generation Moto X, who have subscribed to popular US-based carriers AT&T and Verizon, the newest rollout also comes in tandem with 2014 Moto X Pure Edition and 2014 Moto G users receiving a similar soak test invites last week.
Android 5.0 for AT&T Moto X, for example, should be equal to the one that's reaching out to Moto X handsets on other carriers. Accordingly, users can expect to see features like Smart Lock and lock screen notifications, apart from other significant performance and battery life improvements.
In case you haven't got any idea about what a soak test is, it is a process that Motorola employs to test a software update by sending it out at first to a small, select group of handset owners. And if things go as planned, Motorola then distributes it to all owners of a particular model.
"We are excited to announce a new software update for Moto X (2nd Generation) by Motorola. This update brings Android 5.0 Lollipop to your phone along with other improvements," says the official page.
It adds: "Android 5.0 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."
To be eligible to participate in a Soak Test, you must register with the Motorola Feedback Network. You will also be needed to promise that you won't leak information about the test to anyone.
Motorola is currently in the process of sending Soak Test invites to Verizon customers with the second generation Motorola Moto X.
