Google has chimed in to announce that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition Android 4.4 KitKat update has begun rolling out, right along with the Google Play Edition of the HTC One. Android’s Google+ page confirms that that the update is coming to both phones, and most people should start to see it appear as an over-the-air update. As we saw with the Nexus 7 (2013) update, however, it could take a bit longer to reach some folks.
“Starting today, Samsung GS4 and HTC One Google Play edition devices are getting an update to Android 4.4! “
Anyone with a normal Samsung Galaxy S4, or a Galaxy Note III for that matter, will most likely have to wait until January to see the Android 4.4 KitKat update come rolling in their direction. Owners of other Galaxy devices will have to wait until the spring, if they even receive it at all.
