    Probably just adding support for more devices that support this wireless protocol. Typically used by fitness and cycling performance monitors. I doubt it has anything to do with lollipop, but I'm no expert.

    Yes, I don't know what they are for. I try to uninstall it and can't. I've it on my ATT note 4 also.

    Nothing new. They have been updated a couple of times.

    Ant+ is the standard used for Health and Fitness devices like Heart Rate monitors.

    What is ANT+ - THIS IS ANT

    It has nothing to do with any Lollipop update, like AZwldcats said it is nothing new. Include is an explanation from the web.
    ANT Radio Service is a system service that was pre-installed by your device manufacturer or added as part of an Android update by your carrier and smartphone manufacturer* to allow the built-in ANT communication hardware already present in your mobile device to operate. It is similar to the system components that enable other forms of wireless connectivity on your phone (ie. WiFi, NFC) and will not run or use system resources unless you start an app that requires ANT wireless communication.This system service, along with the ANT+ Plugins, enables other apps of your choice to communicate with ANT+ compatible products (system services cannot be deleted or launched directly). These other apps allow you do things like collect, transfer, and view your sport, health, and fitness data in real time on your mobile device. Please note: the compatible products that may be used with your mobile device will depend on the third party Android app you select.*If this service is not pre-installed on your phone you may still be able to enable ANT+ communication. See ANT+ in Mobile Devices for more info

    I've received several updates on those two in the past few months. Didn't think it was anything to worry about.
