Sony has announced some great news today, they will be releasing the Android Lollipop update for both the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact from today.

The news comes from a post on their blog which reveals that the Android Lollipop update will first be rolled out in the Nordic and Baltic regions, and then rolled out to other countries and regions shortly after.

This means that you get an entirely new looking phone from one update, bringing with a number of new features that most users are sure to enjoy.

Here’s a breakdown of the new features from Sony:

Fresh, streamlined looks – based on Google’s material design, but retaining our minimalistic approach to interface and application design

New look notifications and lock screen – with fully customizable settings, so you only get the information you really need

Multi user profiles and guest mode – making it easy for family and friends to use your device, or the creation of dual environments for work and play…

Android for Work – not only are business-ready Xperia smartphones and tablets unique devices for work – with waterproof form factors, great battery life and productivity features – they will now also be part of the Android for Work ecosystem

Better storage control and customisation – with the option to easily move applications from internal memory to SD card – giving you more control over your content, particularly useful for devices with slightly less space

You can check if the update has rolled out to you by heading over to your phone’s settings, from there you should be able to download the Android Lollipop update if it has been made available where you reside.
