Verizon LG G Vista VS880 starts receiving Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update

The LG G Vista VS880 for Verizon should start getting the update to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop today. This is according to the latest update information posted by the carrier itself, so it’s pretty much as official as it can be.

The update introduces the phone to Android 5.1.1 and software version VS88023A. This is a rather hefty update, you should make sure that you are hooked up to a Wi-Fi network when downloading and installing it. Furthermore, your battery should be charged to at least 50% before you begin the updating process.

To check for the update, open the Settings app, scroll down to and tap on System Updates, tap on Update LG Software, and then on “Check now” to query for the latest and greatest. If you do get the update, let us know by dropping your comments in the box below. Good Luck!

LG G Watch R update brings Wi-Fi capabilities

LG now add support for WiFi communication to it’s G Watch R Android Wear in a new software upgrade going out today. You can see the “Wi-Fi settings” option and a listing of Wi-Fi hotspots in action on the LG G Watch R in the image below. This new update brings Wi-Fi support that means the watch will be able to carry on getting notifications, even if it is not connected to your phone via Bluetooth.

The software upgrade is being sent out OTA, aside from the aforementioned addition of WiFi communication we aren’t treated to much. We’re sure there are many under-the-hood changes that users won’t really notice, but whatever they are the company didn’t feel it necessary to list them. 

If you have yet to see the update, be patient. Interested users can check for the latest OTA update notification on their LG G Watch R via Settings > Software Update.
