Republic Wireless' hybrid WiFi-cellular calling system requires a number of changes to the firmware of phones, so updates tend to take a little longer. Case in point, The Moto G and Moto E are about to get Android 4.4.4 on Republic, but the Moto X is delayed a bit longer.

The days of KitKat are numbered on the Moto G as Motorola begins pushing updates to devices in both the US and India. It isn't available to everyone yet, but it's on the way. That's better than nothing, right?

Motorola makes it easy to get all your stuff on (or off) a Moto X, Moto G, and other Moto phones with the Migrate app. It's seen a few significant design changes in the wake of Android 5.0, and today it's getting another update. This one is mostly adding new functionality, but the UI has a few minor tweaks too.

Another one bites the dust. The Moto G Google Play Edition is no longer available in the Play Store. You've been able to pick up the low-cost device with immediate shipping since its debut almost a year ago. Now it's "no longer available for sale."

If you're the owner of a Moto G GPE, your Lollipop update is here. Google and Motorola have begun rolling out the latest version of Android to the budget GPE device, but if you don't have it yet, we've got the direct download link for you at the bottom of this post.

Oddly, even though this new firmware is Android 5.0.1, the build is LRX21Z, which would appear to be older than LRX22C, which is the 5.0.1 build heading out to Nexus and other GPE devices.

I hear you like updates. Well, here's an update to your Motorola Update Services app that will eventually enable the Lollipop update, whenever Motorola gets around to finishing it.

The third installment of Motorola's Spotlight stories has arrived in the Spotlight Player, and it's called Duet. Like the last two videos, this is an interactive story that you experience by moving your device around to follow the characters. While the last stories (Windy Day and Buggy Night) were quirky and whimsical, Duet is one of those heartstring-tugging, Disney-esque shorts. If you don't want to see too much, go watch the story now before checking out the screenshots.

The original Moto G is getting Android 4.4.4! Well, at least one of them is. The Moto G actually had at least eight different variants designed for various global markets in 3G and LTE flavors. If you happen to have the XT1032 model, which is the most common international 3G-only version, you might be getting an over-the-air update to Android 4.4.4 right now. Why are you still reading this? Open your Settings menu already.

When a new version of Android is announced, one of the first questions on everyone's mind is "when will my device be getting updated?" Fortunately, Motorola has moved towards complete transparency and providing timely updates over the past couple of years, and with the announcement of Lollipop it is giving details on what Moto owners can expect in the coming weeks.

Once Android 5.0 L is officially released, we intend to bring this latest upgrade to many of our other Motorola devices, as well.

There's a new Moto G, but it's only 3G at the moment. 3G just won't cut it for AT&T, so the carrier will soon be selling the old Moto G with LTE. It's still a very capable phone, though, and the pricing isn't bad at $179.99 sans contract. That's a little cheaper than the Amazon price.
