Motorola has released Android 4.4.2 for the Moto G ahead of schedule, despite previously promising to begin its roll-out of the new software in early 2014.
The manufacturer said that it’s “thrilled to start delivering on that promise early” and the Android KitKat update is now available to Moto G handsets purchased on Motorola’s website and Amazon in the US. Motorola added that those who bought the device through carriers and other regions will receive the update “soon”.
A wealth of improvements
Once the software is ready a notification will appear on screen to install. Simply click the update button and the download will commence, as long as your device is charged above 50%.
Users will notice several enhancements and changes with Android KitKat, including restyled status and navigation bars and an improved phone dialer. It also brings an enhanced ‘touch to focus’ camera and better photo editing within the picture gallery.
Up to date
Google’s Android operating system has been broadly criticised in the past for the sporadic nature of its software updates, with some users being left behind. But Motorola has shown huge commitment to keeping its smartphones up to date and it’s great to see this being carried through to the Moto G, one of the cheapest and best value for money smartphones currently in the market.
In a blog post Motorola said: “This update continues our effort to get our users the latest Android software as fast as humanly possible.”
