HTC One (M8) Lollipop Update

HTC One M8 people, GOOD NEWS!!!

Last summer HTC promised that the HTC One M8 would be updated to Android L within 90 days of the release of the L source code to HTC. The 90 days period expires on February 3 and HTC Communications  Executive Jeff Gordon teased about the update hitting the European variant, so it looks like HTC will hold it's promise.

Users on Reddit and Twitter have been confirming the arrival of the OTA update in Europe and Middle East. The updated software version is 4.16.401.10 and is 780MB big (My Moto G had only 350MB :D )

There aren't many visual changes, but the core features like lockscreen notifications, floating notifications, redesigned drop down menu etc are all there.

The update is rolling out in phases so it may take some time before the update hits your M8. But you can check for the update manually by going to
Settings->About Phone->System Update

So happy Lollipoping. Enjoy !
