Second generation Motorola Moto X Soak Test invitations go out to Verizon customers (UPDATE: AT&T, too)

If you own a Motorola handset, you haven't lived until you have participated in a Soak Test. This is a process that Motorola employs to test a software update by sending it out at first to a small number of handsets. If things go as planned, Motorola then disseminates it to all owners of a particular model. By keeping the Soak Test small, Motorola is able to keep a better handle on things; the Soak Test also limits the manufacturer's exposure in case the update bricks some phones.

To be eligible to participate in a Soak Test, you must register with the Motorola Feedback Network. You also need to promise that you won't leak information about the test to anyone.

Motorola is in the process of sending Soak Test invites to Verizon customers rockin' the second generation Motorola Moto X. The build being tested is no doubt Android 5.0. Last week Motorola sent out similar invites for the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition and the second-generation Motorola Moto G.

Motorola recently announced that because of the older style Snapdragon chip employed in the first-generation Motorola Moto X, that model faces a delay before it receives the Lollipop update.

UPDATE: AT&T customers with the second generation Motorola Moto X are also receiving invitations to join a Soak Test, no doubt for Android 5.0.

Alan F. is not doing a very good job at all. Considering the source article is from November 2014. Last time I checked we are in 2015 and its February. At&t is a different story of course.

The Verizon Moto X has had 5.0 for months now. It's probably 5.1 or a small update with new/revised features.

Verizon Moto X 2014 here. You had gotten my hopes up for 5.1; I'm signed up for soak tests. Too bad your source article is three months old. We've had 5.0 since November.

Android is too much for him. He'd be better off sticking to Apple related articles that bash on the competition..

It was like opening a time capsule. What did we see in 2014? Htc has the "one M8" Samsung put out the "galaxy s5". We see the nexus 6 and the nexus 9. Oh and android 5.0 roll out for some devices including the 2014 Moto x. That was fun, but now lets start looking to the future again.
