Moto E, Moto G and Moto X gets Android KitKat 4.4.4 update in India
Motorola, which was previously owned by Google and now by Lenovo, who bought Motorola Mobility is relatively way too forward in providing latest updates for its devices as compared to other competitors. Motorola has released KitKat 4.4.4 update for Moto E, Moto G and Moto X in India.
Motorola has also confirmed the update on its official Twitter account. Motorola has also stated in its another tweet that KitKat 4.4.4 update will provide all the features of KitKat 4.4.3 with extra layer of security for web browsing. In addition, you will get a improved dialer with new interface, stability, framework and security fixes and enhanced profile capabilities. The OpenSSL vulnerability that was recently discovered has also been fixed apart from security.
However, please note that everyone might not have received the update since the updates are rolled out in batch, as stated by Motorola. Keep checking for the update by heading to Settings>About Phone>System Update. If you have received the update, your Motorola device will ask confirmation for downloading files. Download the files and select “Install”. After installation, your device will reboot. Ensure that you have minimum of 75% charge so that the update process doesn’t get interrupted. It is expected that all the devices will receive the update by this week.
One might be tempted to think whether Motorola will provide future updates. The answer is definitely yes. Motorola has promised of next major Android update which is Android L. According to reports, Moto X and Moto G will be getting Android L update while the decision for Moto E is still under review and there’s no information available yet.
Since Motorola offers almost pure Android, unlike Samsung, Sony etc, it is extremely fast in providing updates as there’s nothing to modify. As of now, Android L is still in developer preview phase and its hard to specify the time frame in which Android L update will follow.
