When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides information on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 09/05/2017. If no information is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices and once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, for example the manufacturers might make the update available for a small number of users (i.e. 5%) initially; then if no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll gradually be made available to more and more users over the following weeks.

Is there any point to this blog area? Do Optus ever look at them and answer questions? The reason I ask, is that I was told by Yes Optus to come to this area for help, as my Optus Galaxy J1 is stuck on android 4.4.4, yet the same phone from Optus now has Lollipop 5.1. I was told that someone from Optus would tell me why mine hasn't updated, yet my last post in the previous thread has been closed off without any attention from Optus. Are Optus helping their customers here, or is this a complete waste of time, and a way to shift focus from the problem? Thanks.

Hi @viewer,  thanks for letting us know. Yes Crowd is a community help forum but yes we moderate the pages here and answer where we can. Happy to help. I've just referred your Galaxy J1 issue to the team that handles the updates. I'll get back to you with some clarification.

Now that the Sony is finally on the list, lets hope it includes the VoLTE function and even better if it has WiFi calling when it arrives.

When will the Google security update for the Mate 9 actually be rolled out?  Also, what firmware version is it?

What's the hold-up for the P9? If it takes much longer I might have to try unbranding the phone.

Will the S6/S6 Edge updates finally bring VoLTE?
