The official Android blog announces a new update for their latest Android Lollipop OS. The Android 5.1, apart from the usual improvement in stability and performance, also offers new features to look forward to for compatible devices.
New features that users should expect include:
- Support for multiple SIM cards – the new update now lets you use more than one SIM card on a device with multiple SIM slots.
- Device Protection – your lost or stolen device will remain locked until you sign in with your Google account – even if someone resets your device to factory settings. According to the page it will be available on most Android devices that run Android 5.1 in addition to Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.
- High-definition voice calling – as the name suggests, voice calls should be clearer when two phones running Android 5.1 call each other.
In addition, the update also rolls out enhancements that let you join Wi-Fi networks and control your paired Bluetooth devices straight from Quick Settings.
