Motorola is on a roll! The company was one of the first phone makers to get Android 4.4 KitKat out to owners of the Moto X, and now it’s already pushing the absolute latest version of Android out to its budget-friendly Moto G handset. It’s ahead of schedule, since Motorola originally promised it in January.
You can expect to see a few new features, including the ability to print an email or photo directly from your phone, new status and notification bars, and other improvements that come with Android 4.4 KitKat, like an improved dialer, Google’s Photos application, camera enhancements, SMS/Hangouts integration and more. The Moto G will also now support the Square credit card reader.
Motorola says the update will apply to global GSM and U.S. GSM devices that were purchased from Amazon or Motorola’s site in the United States starting today. The update will also hit Moto G devices in other countries and tied to carriers in the near future, though an exact date was not provided. The company will continue to provide update information through a new blog called “The Download.” We’ll be sure to keep you in the know when Motorola dishes out new details on its blog in the future.
