Motorola releases Android 4.4 KitKat update for Verizon Moto X

 

Motorola announced today that the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Verizon version of the Moto X would begin its rollout. This deploy comes a mere three weeks since KitKat was officially launched with the Nexus 5, an impressive turnaround to say the least (it's also beats Google to releasing the update for Google Play Experience smartphones and some Nexus devices). Motorola says the update includes many of the KitKat enhancements, such as the interface refresh and smart dialer. But Motorola doesn't mention the Google Experience launcher in its release notes, and it seems that is still an exclusive to the Nexus 5. Verizon users should get notifications on their Moto X devices starting today, and the company says that it will announce other carrier rollouts "very soon."

A non-Nexus device gets KitKat before the Nexus 4? That's a first.

Way to go Motorola! This must be a first for Verizon to be on the bleeding edge of Android updates (poor Galaxy Nexus). This is how Android updates should be handled (hint hint Samsung/HTC/LG/all other Android manufacturers). If only everyone stuck as close to stock Android as possible rather than include Touchwiz/Sense/<manufacturer customizations>...

Been saying that Google will upgrade the Moto X quickly all along.  Now lets see how long it takes for the new Moto Droids to get updated.

Well, this is just Verizon.  Let's see if AT&T drags their feet.

Seems like Motorola was the one who pushed for the KK update.  So dont see why ATT should take to much longer.

Yeah, I hope not (my son's phone is a Moto X) but they sure did wait on the Amber update to my Nokia...

And yet my Nexus 4 hasn't heard a peep in terms of an update. Thanks Google.
