Not too long ago Google released the Android 5.1.1 update for the Nexus 9, Nexus 10 and the Nexus Player set-top box. It was only a matter of time before this update was released for the smartphones, and the LTE variant of the new Nexus tablet. Today the company is rolling out this bug fixing update for the Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and the Nexus 9 LTE.

It’s an incremental update for all intents and purposes so don’t expect to see any drastic changes once you’ve downloaded it. Sprint revealed it about a week back that Android 5.1.1 will be rolling out soon for the Nexus 5 and now it’s finally here.

The latest software update for Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and the Nexus 9 LTE brings stability and performance improvements as well as crucial bug fixes for the system.

Since that’s all that it has, the update weighs under 25MB and shouldn’t take long at all to download. Nevertheless, it would be best to download it over a Wi-Fi connection with ample juice left in the battery.

It shouldn’t take long for the over-the-air roll out to complete for all users in all markets, those who simply can’t wait can grab the firmware files from Google’s developer website and flash it manually themselves.
