After at the end of last week a couple of devices started to receive the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, it seems that starting today, the new version of the operating system arrives on the Nexus 7 (2013) tablet too, as our reader Toni Vasile let us know.


As you can see, the update in case will occupy 500 Mb on the Nexus 7 (2013) tablet. Among the new software features brought by this update we have a new notification system that allows users to quickly see them from the lock screen or to reject them.

Also, this new version of Android brings now a big update on the user interface, the icons adopting the Material Design style. It remains to see which one will be the next device that will get Android 5.0 Lollipop, and how fast will arrive on our phones.


    Is there any easy way to revert this update if you don’t like it? I have read that it breaks video playback on the Nexus 7 2013, with no news than anybody has fixed such an issue or figured out how to fix such an issue. I like Kitkat and don’t see any compelling new features or reason to upgrade.

    How on earth did they fit the whole thing into 62.5 megabytes? You say “500Mb”, five hundred megabits. “Mb” is megabits; “MB” is megabytes. Ask any electrical engineer. Divide 500 megabits by 8 bits per byte to get 62.5.
