Android 4.4.3 reportedly in dogfooding stages right now


 Share

Recommended Posts

We could be close to a launch of Android 4.4.3 soon, with reports suggesting Google has started the dogfooding process internally (which means their engineers and employees are using it internally to help find and crush those last annoying bugs keeping them from unleashing the update onto the masses).

 

Of course, this update might not be huge in terms of new features, but it will be important. For starters, we?re waiting on an answer to the battery drain bug triggered by background initialization of device cameras. Skype was an app that caused this bug to flare more often than not, though the company has already developed a workaround while we await Google?s official fix.

Dogfooding? Never heard that expression before. Personally I prefer cat food.

 

Rolling out to few developers... developers usually have keen eyes to look for changes and bugs...

 

Maybe they will fix the bluetooth bug.

 

Its actually from KitKat 4.4 to 4.4.3, find in this list: https://gist.github.com/archon810/1b7c6faa2e2eab831017

I work in a SDC (as a senior test analyst) for a large multi-national, and I've never heard of dogfooding.

Never heard of it. 

 

The Facebook development process is called Dogfeeding. Where everyone has access to everything (Pretty much anyway) and they can throw code in left right and center. There is no standard development process.

The term, Dogfooding. has been around for at least several years....

was gonna say the same thing, heard the expression a long while ago, i think the first place i heard it was Microsoft, they often state they dogfood the windows server etc.. especially when they took over from Hotmail and started migrating the servers from Linux/BSD to Windows machines.

Actually, common users are better at bug finding than developers are.

Agree with that. Devs aren't critical of their own work.

My Samsung Galaxy 10 came with android 4.3 (oops) ... my bluetooth headphones worked, then.

 

When it updates itself to 4.4.2 my headphones stopped connecting.

 

My Win 7 laptop will still connect via Bluetooth, but my Samsung will not find my headphones. :/

 

I had a long LiveChat with Samsung today -- they are trying to tell me my headphones are suddenly not compatible with version 4.4.2 -- which makes absolutely no sense to me.

It could go both way.. Common users are good in finding User experience or UI related bugs but programming level bugs are different scenarios. Although I am not totally disagree with you. So both ways is correct.  :)

Hum, do you tried opening that link and then use Ctrl+Find and search for "bluetooth", it highlighted 17 matches for me... Try to see if they mention some relevant fix you are looking at...

^ Thanks -- but I already solved the problem.

 

There was no bug in android.

 

The headphones can not connect to 2 devices at once -- DUH on me.
