Android 5.1 was officially announced earlier this month, with rollouts gradually occurring for Nexus devices since then. Today, T-Mobile has joined in and started rolling out Android 5.1 to its Nexus 6 variant. The update carries the build number LMY47M and is unique to devices with T-Mobile SIM cards inside.

The update packs all of the features Google unveiled with Android 5.1 earlier this month. This includes Device Protection, which is a feature that ensures a lost or stolen device will remain locked until the original owner signs into it with his or her Google account. T-Mobile’s Nexus 6 also gains support for Voice over LTE and HD Voice call support A unlocks the 700MHz frequency bands on the device.

The update comes in at 409MB and has started rolling out today. It may take a while for it to hit every T-Mobile Nexus 6, but more information is available on the carrier’s software versions page.
