AT&T's Nexus 6 starts receiving Android 5.1.1 update
The AT&T version of the Nexus 6 is in the midst of being updated to Android 5.1.1. That happens to match the Android build employed by the U.S. Cellular and Sprint versions of the phone. While not as hefty as the Android 5.0 update, at 81MB the update requires that you have a Wi-Fi connection to process it. The file will be arriving OTA.

The Nexus 6 Android 5.1.1 update for AT&T brings firmware version LMY47Z and will offer stability improvements. It also "disables the Smart Lock feature when EAS password policy is enforced."

Since the update is being sent out on a staggered basis, you might not receive it for a few days. Your best bet is to go into settings and check for a software update. If that is too much work for you, just wait for the notification to hit your phone, make sure your battery is charged to at least 50%, and connect to a Wi-Fi network.

Having Android 5.1.1 on your Nexus 6 isn't going to change your life, but it does bring your phone one update closer to Android M, and that is an update that will change in many ways how you use your Android phone.

Lol the majority who have this phone have already updated. The majority of nexus owners probably stick their middle finger up to carrier updates.
