A couple of weeks ago, a post by Motorola Germany on Facebook seemed to confirm that the Android L update would be arriving on both the Moto X and the Moto G. However it turns out that the information was false. According to Motorola, they claim that the Motorola Germany page was a fake and not an official one.
“Unfortunately, we have found that a Facebook profile under the name “Motorola Germany” with the following URL facebook.com/MotoDACH/ was created. We would like to point out that this is not an official Motorola site and expressly distance ourselves from said content. All relevant information about Motorola can be found only here on this page.”
Interestingly enough despite the “fake” post, it turns out that whoever was behind the post might have been right, even if it did not come from official sources at that time. According to Android Origin, they have obtained screenshots allegedly showing a conversation between a customer and an official Motorola rep.
The rep was asked if the Moto X and Moto G would be eligible for the Android L update in which she replied in the affirmative. However when asked about the more recent Moto E, the rep claims that there was no information about the handset receiving the update at this time. Of course customer reps do get it wrong from time to time, so it’s hardly a sure thing, so until we hear from Motorola in an official statement, we suggest you not get your hopes up just yet.
