Google has announced that the Android 5.0 (Lollipop) software update has begun rolling out for its Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 smartphones as well as the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets.

The rollout will begin from today but as usual with Android updates they won't be available to everyone around the globe at the same time. Google announced the beginning of the Android 5.0 update rollout on Twitter:

Updates will be available over the air (OTA) to all compatible devices once Google rolls the Lollipop update out in their particular geographical location.

The Android 5.0 update was launched with the two latest Nexus devices, the Motorola-made Nexus 6 smartphone and the HTC-manufactured Nexus 9 tablet.

The Lollipop update will come to Nexus devices first, but some will get it before others, with the Nexus 4 along with the cellular versions of the Nexus 7 likely to get the update later that the other models.

Unlike iOS updates, which are made available to all compatible devices at once, every other Android device will have to wait, with Motorola's 2014 versions of the Moto G and Moto X likely to be the first devices to get the update.
