Verizon this evening has revealed that it is starting to rollout Android 5.0 Lollipop to its HTC One M8 variant. The update packs all of the features we’ve come to know and love with Android 5.0, as well as a few new tweaks and enhancements exclusive to the M8 on Verizon.

Changes with Lollipop include a revamped notification drawer, a new card-based multitasking interface, and support for lock screen notifications. Of course, there are also many Material Design interface tweaks throughout the operating system.

In addition to the standard Lollipop enhancements, this update also brings band 4 roaming and 3-way calling enhancements to the One M8.

The update has just started rolling out this evening, so it may take a while to hit your device. You can check for the update by heading into the Settings app and manually hitting the update servers. You can read the full update PDF here.
