New features on Android Lollipop 5.1


The Lollipop 5.1 update fixes bugs and also improves the performance and stability of Lollipop 5.0.  It adds a few new interface elements, but mainly the changes and improvements are to the general performance and bug-fixes of older versions of Lollipop.

New features include:

  • Better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth controls which means you can choose your wireless network or your Bluetooth profile by means of the new drop-down panel inside the Notification window.


  • You can also change Sound Profiles to Silent, or a new setting called None, until your next alarm is due to go off.


  • Improved protection for your device that permits your device being factory-reset without the password for your Google profile previously used on the device.  This feature is only offered on Nexus 6 and 9 and new Android 5.1 devices.
  • Notifications can be flicked away back up to the Notification window and it won’t get dismissed entirely.  This can make managing your Notifications much easier than on the older versions of Lollipop.
  • If you use your device over Wi-Fi Networks and it has a poor internet connection, it will never connect to that Wi-Fi Network again. 

The first devices that will get this new update are the T-Mobile and Verizon Nexus 6, as well as T-Mobile Nexus 4, 5, and 7 also getting the update in the near future.
