Google Android 5.1 Update Release: Nexus 5 Launch, WiFi And Bluetooth Changes Plus More Interesting Features

Android 5.0 Lollipop has not reached all intended devices but Google's appears busy working on a new update to release soon. According to tips and leaks, the Android 5.1 will be coming soon with the Nexus 5 as possibly the first device in line.

The first hint about Google's upcoming Android 5.1 update came from an Android Police tipster. According to the tipster, people can expect obvious tweaks to the Android interface. These include changes in the Bluetooh and WiFi settings toggles/widgets. The Lollipop offers a Quick Settings menu allowing people to connect to devices or networks without accessing the entire list of settings.
For those who got confused with Google's Lollipop approach, the Android 5.1 will lower the notification shade to the device's Quick Settings menu. This means users can choose to turn off or on the Bluetooth or WiFi by tapping on the specified icons. They can also do so by tapping the labels "Bluetooth" or "WiFi" over accessing the menu.

The tipster also said that under Android 5.1, the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth text features an arrow down for additional functionality. Tapping on the arrow will show a series of Bluetooth devices or WiFi networks nearby. The new expandable functionality features allow people to switch or access connections without closing their apps or other tasks. To fee the full settings menu, they have to top on the "more settings" option.

The latest Geekbench test, on other hand, offers more support to the release of the Android 5.1. The firmware was spotted running on the LG Nexus 5 strengthening claims. Google always releases its Android updates first to flagship devices: the Nexus line. According to the results, the device scored 2997. This is a little higher but similar to the results of the Nexus 5 when tested against the Lollipop.
Google has not released the official details of the Android 5.1 update.
