    Google did officially announce it would be released today. I read it on Android Authority, a Google Android developer made the official statement. Browsing around different Android sites and forums, I saw a few people who said they got it. Idk what's going on.

    Golly gee, that sure sounds official...

    This is from their official Android blog posted yesterday. So it should have started to roll out yesterday.
    “Design is a major focus for Lollipop—the latest version of Android—which begins to roll out today.”

    This is just bull****. I always wondered why Google never did updates like Apple. Surely the user pool of Apple devices is much larger than Nexus devices, and yet Apple is the one to launch the OTA update for all devices at the same time. I remember when I had an iPhone, getting iOS 7 right on the release day was nearly impossible, but this year I had 2 iPads and an iPhone successfuly updated to iOS 8 the hour it launched. If they're having problems with carriers, then why don't release the OTA update for Wi-Fi only and carrier free devices?

    They promised OTA updates to start Nov 3, but I haven't seen anyone to actually get one and the factory images for flashing aren't in their webpage either.

    well it was technically released today on the n9. It usually takes a week or two for older phones to get it. Last year the moto x got kitkat before the nexus 4.

    Maybe Google gets giggles tweaking the anal-retentive folks on the forum? My Nexus 5 worked great yesterday, works great today, and I'll get Lollipop when it comes around.

    Not really. The image for the 2012 nexus 7 wifi is on XDA and google +. Having a 2012 3g nexus 7 im just going to wait for the OTA of the finalized version. Really curious about android auto.

    Dan Morril:

    "Rollouts are conducted in phases. Typically they start at 1% of devices for around 24 - 48 hours; we watch the return rates and resulting device checkins and error reports (if any), and make sure nothing looks wrong before sending it to more. Then typically it goes to 25%, 50%, 100% over the course of a week or two."

    Nothing on my N7 2013 wifi 16GB, Estonia.

    Well, a few people allegedly received the update, so I'm guessing they might be the lucky 1%, by tomorrow it should be reaching 25%. If all goes well, I'm assuming the update will reach most of us by the end of the week. Fingers crossed that I'll be and to get the update on my phone tomorrow.

    Any idea when factory images will be available for Android 5?

    I'd like not to wait for update OTA ... I would like to flash my nexus 4 as soon as possible.

    People have a right to be annoyed if something is promised but not delivered. I don't know why Google can't do it the way Apple does. Announce a time and then let everyone have it as soon as they want to do the upgrade. Surely Google has just as much server capacity as Apple, if not more.

    You're probably onto something here. My phone works fantastic without the latest software. I'll be ready when it gets here, but I'm not going to stress out over a few new items.

    from KitKat to Lollipop there has been the biggest UI change in Android history and 128,680 commits. Yeah, just a few.

    According to several replies on Twitter from their Nexus account, @googlenexus, the OTA rollout will be "in the coming weeks."

    Actually what would help most would be for the factory image files to get posted somewhere so that those who want Lollipop can just go and snag it rather than waiting for the OTA update process. I updated to Kit Kat that way.

    I think when we heard "released on November 3rd" we all assumed "OTA's INBOUND!"

    I'm sure that Google meant "released" as in, the Nexus 9 will be available and Lollipop will be available to the public. Everything on Google's Nexus twitter page suggest that the N5 will "get lollipop in the coming weeks", not "it's available now and rollout will take weeks"

    Most people consider "released" to mean "I can get it now". When Apple releases an OS on a specific date you can download it on that date. No "rollout" crap. There's no reason that Google can't do the same thing, and since only a few devices are involved it's nowhere near the volume that Apple has to deal with when they release an OS. So Google surely has the server capacity to do it.

    When it will be available, it will be there. It is already for the Nexus 9

    0:30 UK time - still nothing on Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (the older one). Google, stop taking the ****! Just give us a date and time and don't play games.

    It'll takes days, if not weeks, for all Nexus devices to update. Its just the way it is.

    The images will probably be up tomorrow or Thursday then people can update their own devices.
