T-Mobile to update Nexus 6 for Wi-Fi Calling starting today; Android 5.1.1 also on the way
Starting today, a small number of Nexus 6 owners on T-Mobile should see their stock Android phablet receive Wi-Fi Calling via an OTA update. A tweet from "Product Evangelist" Des revealed T-Mobile's intentions. The update will be pushed out over the three-day holiday weekend, and will eventually allow the carrier's Nexus 6 users to make/take calls over a Wi-Fi network.

Additionally, T-Mobile has started pushing out Android 5.1.1 for the phablet. The software version is LYZ28E and besides the usual bug fixes and stability improvements, it includes a new device Anti-Theft feature. Android 5.1.1 for the Nexus 6 weighs in at 125.8MB, and can be downloaded and installed for now only through a Wi-Fi connection. T-Mobile says that it will offer the update later for those sticking to a cellular hook-up.

T-Mobile also suggests that you have your phone charged to at least 50% before beginning the updating process. Since the update is sent out on a staggered basis, if it doesn't come in the next few days, don't threaten John Legere by offering him a free weekend at the Trump hotel of his choice. Be patient and your Nexus 6 will soon be rolling with Android 5.1.1.
