If users want to access the new upgrade on their device then the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 Tablet are currently available in the market and have Android Lollipop 5.1 Those with devices supporting Android KitKat 4.4.4 will have to wait for a while. Their devices will automatically upgrade to the latest update, but the different manufacturers customise the update for their respective devices, and this takes some time.
