After all major U.S. carriers released Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Moto X (2nd Generation) late last year, AT&T has finally pushed the update out. AT&T Moto X users can now download and install Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.

While smartphone makers like Samsung, HTC, and LG all lay an additional skin on top of Android to make the OS easier to use, Motorola decided to move forward by abandoning its MotoBlur UI and ship its devices with a near-stock version of Android. The change in removing this extra software layer made it easier for Motorola to release Android updates in a timelier fashion.

When Google released Android 5.0 Lollipop in October 2014, Motorola created a dedicated support page to provide customers with information on which Motorola smartphones would receive Lollipop.

Motorola began rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop as an OTA software update to its current flagship Moto X (2nd Generation) in November and the update hit Verizon's variant in November. AT&T customers will be glad to know that the carrier has finally released the highly anticipated update.

Motorola has provided instructions on how to manually download and install the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop software update on the AT&T Moto X (2nd Generation).

"For a successful installation, we recommend installing this update when the battery in your phone is at least 50 percent charged and you are connected to a Wi-Fi network."
