Moto GMotorola, which said last month it would update all of its devices to Lollipop “really soon,” appears to have started taking initial steps to upgrade the first-generation Moto G. Users of the device are reporting that they have received a pop-up message on their device regarding a future update (via MobileSyrup).

In the message, Motorola tells Moto G users that they must ensure that they have the latest version of the Motorola Update Services app. Users who do not have the latest version will never receive the Lollipop update, according to the company. Motorola notes that the update will begin in the “upcoming weeks.” Although, receiving this pop-up warning does not mean that you are slated to get the Lollipop Moto G update before other users.

The message reads as follows:

We are preparing the Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade for your device. In order to receive it in the upcoming coming weeks, please ensure that you have the latest version of Motorola Update Services by selecting “More Information” below. You will not receive the Lollipop upgrade notice if this step is incomplete.

While Motorola continues to only offer the vague “upcoming weeks” timetable for the Moto G Lollipop update, many other Motorola devices have already started receiving their respective Lollipop updates. Ideally, this means that the update is only a short while away and will hit users sooner rather than later.
