Android 4.4.4 Kitkat Installation on Moto G, E and Moto X
Motorola has finally released its list of OS updates to the 4.4.4 KitKat version of Google’s operating system, Android. Devices like Moto E, Moto G and Moto X are mentioned on the list, and the roll out will be first released in India. The Motorola India Twitter account has send a tweet that confirmed the company releasing the Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS to various devices among which are the three previously mentioned devices: the Motorola Moto G, Motorola Moto E and Motorola Moto X.
The company states that they can download the operating system via over-the-air release or a manual installation. What the update will bring is some OpenSSL fixes, a brand new dialer, other bug fixes as well as some framework improvements. Motorola seems to keep a schedule to their updates, since last year, they released the Android 4.4.3 KitKat around the same timeline.
It was actually in June, and at that time we read a statement released for NDTV from the SVP of Motorola’s Software Engineering, Steve Horowitz: “We are excited to announce some icing on top of the, well, KitKat. Starting today (June 3rd), we are rolling out Android 4.4.3, KitKat, which was just released by Google.”
Comparing with the Android 4.4.3 KitKat that was released for the same list of devices, we can expect with the new update a new, better, phone dialer as well as some graphical changes and new color schemes. Exclusively for Moto E owners, you can also expect a brand new range of function and consistency.
What the Motorola Moto E will also have is the Motorola Alert system which is meant to send periodic updates of where the user is located and other vital details, so if you find yourself traveling alone a lot or any similar situation, the Motorola Alert is a safe thing to have. The Motorola Moto G is receiving a new pause button when it comes to video recording, as well as an update for its viewfinder. What the Moto X will be improved in is the camera department: the camera will have new features like higher image quality and consistent exposure.
