If you were gutsy enough to buy a Moto G late last year and were wondering as to when will the smartphone be blessed with Android 4.4 KitKat, well the time has arrived as users in the UK have started receiving the update starting today.
This makes Moto G the first ever non-Nexus device in the UK to receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update. Users who haven’t still received the update should start seeing Android 4.4.2 update sometime today or in a couple of days from now.
Motorola hasn’t got a slew of devices in the UK and it aims to deliver Android KitKat update to a third of its product line beating HTC and Samsung to the mark. HTC announced earlier that it will be releasing the KitKat update for its device by the end of January and rumours pointed to a possibility of Samsung S5 in January itself rather than updating its Galaxy range of smartphones to KitKat.
Motorola didn’t make a great deal about the update and went about quietly announcing the availability of Android 4.4.2 for Moto G via its UK support page.
Some of the new features that Moto G users will find once their handset is updated including restyled status and navigation bars, full-screen mode, colour emoji support, stronger security, improved phone app, new photo editing features, support for printing documents and photos from Google Drive, new version of Hangouts, and support for Square credit card reader.
