In November Google announced that it was releasing Android 5.0 Lollipop. The software was first unveiled earlier this year as Android L and later its moniker was confirmed as Lollipop. LG was one of the first OEMs to roll out this update for its flagship device and now it’s rolling out Lollipop across a major market. The LG G3 is receiving Lollipop update across Europe today.

The first market to receive this update from LG was Poland, where Lollipop was pushed out a few weeks back. LG’s home country of South Korea was also given priority for obvious reasons.

This is the first wide roll out of Android 5.0 Lollipop by a OEM for its flagship device. The update is heading to many countries in Europe, including but not limited to France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, Portugal and more. Markets beyond Europe will receive the update as well, such as Russia, Kazakhstan and Taiwan.

As far as North America is concerned there is still considerable wait involved. Carriers will have to test the update before it can be released for end users, so that delay is inevitable.

LG is rolling out Lollipop over-the-air in these markets, so Lollipop will automatically land on the G3 in Europe, all users will then have to do is tap to install the latest iteration of Google’s mobile platform.
