LG G Pad 8.3 GPe next up on the Lollipop train
The devices under the Google umbrella have been having a bit of a rough time with the Android 5.0 Lollipop update so far. The Nexus devices have all been receiving the update on the usual roll out timeline (even though that timeline still annoys some users), but the Google Play edition devices have been seeing delays. It looks like the kinks may have been worked out though, because the LG G Pad 8.3 GPe Lollipop roll out has begun.

There has been no official announcement of the update just yet, but users on Twitter and the XDA forums have been reporting getting the system update notification. There is also no full change log available to let us know about any device specific tweaks, but the update notification mentions the usual Android 5.0 features, like "a bold new visual style", lock screen notifications, battery saving mode, Priority Mode, and Smart Lock. 

Assuming this roll out runs on the same timeline as other Google roll outs, about 1% of LG G Pad 8.3 GPe users should see the update in the first 48 hours, and the stages will progress at about 25% of devices over one or two weeks, until it's all done. So, just because the roll out has started doesn't necessarily mean you'll see it all that soon; but, if you're impatient, you can always flash the update manually (file at the AP source.)
