Motorola posted the Android 5.1 changelog for the second gen Moto E earlier this month (along with the 1st and 2nd gen Moto X). A week later, we saw over-the-air updates go out. What about the older Moto E released a year before? As it turns out, Motorola isn't leaving the phone behind. The company is currently soak testing Android 5.1 on the device in India.
Motorola has posted a changelog aimed at Indian users. A reader sent us these screens of the update coming to his Moto E on Tata Docomo.
At 209.5MB, this update is even smaller than the 250MB one that 2nd gen owners received. It bumps devices up to software version 23.21.15. If all goes well, hopefully an OTA will roll out to a broader audience soon enough.
