Reports indicate Motorola is gearing up to release the Android 5.0 Lollipop
update for the first-generation Moto G
in India. Additionally, Motorola
on Monday updated its 'Motorola Update Services' app in Google Play ahead of a impending Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the first-generation Moto G.
Android OS reports that the company has started sending Android 5.0 Lollipop 'soak test' invites to members of the Moto Feedback Network using a first-generation Moto G.

The invite mail reads, "Thanks for joining the Motorola Feedback Network. We are inviting owners of the Moto G in India to participate in an early preview of a new software release and provide feedback."
It's worth noting that ahead of the official release of Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Moto X (Gen 2), the company was last month testing the update with members of its Moto Feedback Network in a soak test.
Further pointing to the imminent release of the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the first-generation Moto G, the Lenovo-owned company has updated its OTA update service app. The app update to the over-the-air (OTA) installer will enable a future upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The app listing notes, "It updates the installer on: Moto G (1st Gen.)," and "All users with these devices should accept this update."
Motorola had in October promised the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Moto G alongside other devices including Moto X, Moto G 4G LTE, Moto E, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini smartphones without giving much details on timing.
Last month, the company officially announced the OTA rollout of the latest Android update for the Moto G (Gen 2) and Moto X (Gen 2) smartphones.
