We already praised Motorola for pushing out Android 4.4 KitKat to the Moto X faster than any other phone maker, and now it’s moving through its line of products and updating additional devices. Verizon Wireless confirmed Thursday that Android 4.4 KitKat is now rolling out to the Motorola DROID Ultra, DROID Maxx and DROID Mini.

The latest version of Android adds several new features, including full-screen mode, emoji, performance enhancements, improved power management functions and more. Meanwhile, the update should also improve the camera quality, and will also update Motorola’s DROID ZAP application to version 2.0, with a new interface and quicker access to the photo sharing app. Other features include support for the Fitbit (though we’re shocked to learn it wasn’t supported earlier), and updates to Google Photos, Motorola Assist and a host of Verizon’s pre-installed applications.

You should receive the update over-the-air though you can also check for it manually by going into the settings of your DROID Maxx, DROID Mini or DROID Ultra and checking for a software update.
