Google Nexus devices may not be the very first to get latest Android 5.0 Lollipop but the upgrade is not late either. Just hours after Motorola and LG rolled out Android 5.0 Lollipop update to top devices Google joined the club to roll out the Android L upgrade for Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (first and second generation), Nexus 4 and Nexus 10. The sweet Lollipop upgrade is now available for Nexus users over the air OTA.

As the tweet suggests Nexus users may soon see the software update in their settings options but if you can’t wait until then you can also download the factory Images starting today. However, make sure you backup all your mobile data before you flash the factory images as the process will completely wipe out your device while installing the new software.
Last week Google accidentally leaked the factory image for Nexus 7 2012 Wi-Fi version but now the same is available for all Nexus devices like Nexus 5, Nexus 10, Nexus 7 2013 Wi-Fi version, Nexus 7 2013 Mobile version and Nexus 4 smartphone. Before you download and start flashing the factory image for latest Android L you need to download the latest version of Android SDK Platform tools.
Also, Android L is the biggest change in Google operating system since its existence, so clear the clutter and make some room for the update if you haven’t already. With the new Android L upgrade lots of design changes and new technologies are heading your way. The unique material design in Android L became the talk of the tech town ever since its first appearance in Google I/O early this year and it’s expected to be the game changer for latest OS. Here you can read more about the unique features of new Android 5.0 Lollipop.
