Google has once again delayed the approval of the Android 5.0 Lollipop builds that HTC has submitted for the HTC One and HTC One M8 Google Play Editions.

This follows an earlier delay when HTC One and HTC M8 Google Play Edition owners were expecting to receive the Lollipop update at the beginning of November.

The reason for the first delay was pretty vague, with Google simply stating that it would "need to re-spin SW". If we were to Google Translate that confusing statement into plain English, we'd guess that it meant Google needed time to tweak and update the Android 5.0 Lollipop software.

Why the delay?

That delay pushed back the expected Lollipop update to December 1. However that date came and went with no sign of the update.

It soon emerged that the Lollipop Update has been delayed once again, with Mo Versi, HTC's VP of Product Management, reporting that the delay this time is due to Google being too busy at the moment, but that we should expect the update soon.

Let's hope Google finds the time to update the flagship stock Android handsets as quickly as possible.
