Android 5.0 Lollipop's first bug-fixing update is now out for a number of Nexus devices, wrote CNET. The outlet reported that Google is behind the good stuff, having factory images currently available for the Nexus 7 (2013 Wi-Fi), Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi) and Nexus 10.

According to Game & Guide, Nexus 7 users who had trouble playing YouTube videos would benefit from the patch, since some users claimed fix regarding the issue. The outlet cited another update fix which intended to prevent accidental factory resets.

International Business Times reported that other Nexus devices (Nexus 4, 5 and 6) have not received the update yet, but they might as well have them soon.

The update follows our earlier cover which cited problems experienced by Nexus users under Android 5.0. These included installation issues, a flashlight bug and information storage stacking. Recall that Lollipop initially rolled-out Nov. 3, but then appeared to delay because of Wi-Fi connectivity and battery-draining bugs discovered among Nexus 5 handsets.

CNET reminded prospects that the current update comes as image files -- the installation of which would apply Lollipop's intended fixes (or features, perhaps) but delete personal information and files as well. Backing up has always been recommended.

Devices slated to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop include the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi and Cellular; 2012 and 2013), Nexus 10, LG G3, Nvidia Shield Tablet and Google Play Edition devices. HTC's Nexus 9 and Motorola's Nexus 6 originally ship with the OS.

On the other hand, Motorola devices expected to get Lollipop include first and second generations of Moto X and Moto G, Droid Turbo, Moto G 4G LTE, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, Droid Mini and Moto E. Users may check out Motorola's official software updates page for more information.

Looking into the future, LG's G4, HTC's One M9 and Samsung's Galaxy S6 are all rumored to pack Lollipop. Another similarity shared by these devices is that they're all expected to launch early next year (although G4 may take on a separate May date).
