Not too long ago, when Motorola unveiled the extremely affordable Moto G in the U.S., it promised that the smartphone would get the taste of Android 4.4 KitKat by January 2014. It seems Moto G users may not need to wait that long, because the Google-owned company is already rolling out the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Moto G in the U.S.
Motorola is doing a commendable job in releasing timely updates for its handsets. A few weeks back, Moto X received the Android 4.4 KitKat update on all major U.S. carriers, followed by the Verizon Droid line up (Droid Maxx, Droid Mini and Droid Ultra) earlier this week. Now it’s time for Moto G to taste the sweetness.
The update brings a bunch of improvements and enhancements, including restyled status and navigation bars, a new full-screen mode, color emoji support, improved closed captioning support, stronger security and more. You can check the complete list of features and enhancements via Motorola’s change log.
The update is rolling out over-the-air now. If you don’t get the notification, or if you’re simply impatient to try the latest operating system, you can manually check for the update by navigating to Settings > About Phone > System Updates.
If you’re one of those lucky ones who’s already received the update, please share your experience using the comments below.
