Motorola says Lollipop for the original Moto X is being test driven, official rollout in a few weeks

It looks like Motorola is finally getting ready to update the first-generation Motorola Moto X to Android 5.1 Lollipop. David Schuster, Motorola’s Senior Director of Product Management, says that the Android 5.1 update for the Moto X (1st Gen.) is now in “TestDrive” in both the U.S. and Latin America.

At this point, however, it’s still unclear which variants of the 2013 Moto X will get the update first. We’d expect the unlocked versions to be updated first, though, with carrier models to follow, as that’s the common trend.

The list of new features includes

a refreshed and Material Design-ified user interface
Screen Pinning
a new Recent Apps menu
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection options in Quick Settings
and more.
