Here’s yet another serving of positive news as pertains to Motorola, with the US manufacturer very much under-promising and over-delivering on its home turf.
Firstly, the wallet-friendly Moto G touched down ahead of its scheduled January release, and now US users are being served KitKat Android 4.4.2 as an early Christmas present.
The Moto G KitKat Android 4.4.2 update was originally penciled in for early 2014, but it’s available RIGHT NOW. Er, for some.
We’re told that Moto G handsets bought from Amazon.com or directly from Motorola.com in the US will see the update first, with “other Moto G carriers and regions” following “soon”.
Perusing the Moto G KitKat release notes, users can expect restyled status and navigation bars, enhanced security, and smarter power management.
Other Moto G KitKat features include new editing options for photos, including the ability to scribble all over them, while you can also now print documents and pictures directly from the phone.
The US manufacturer recommends installing the Moto G KitKat update over Wi-Fi and with at least 50% battery.
For users receiving an update notification, it’s simply a case of selecting “Download”, and subsequently “Install now”. Moto G users can also check manually for KitKat, by going to Settings > About phone > System updates > Download > Install.
