AT&T Galaxy S4 Active Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Update Rolling Out Now

AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, the somewhat water-resistant version of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S4, is now receiving an update to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. According to Android Central, the update measures 772MB in size, so you’ll probably want to make sure you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network before you get started.

The phone runs Android 4.2 out of the box, but Android 4.3 adds some useful features including dial pad autocomplete, Bluetooth Smart support for low-power Bluetooth devices, better Wi-Fi location detection and more. AT&T didn’t say what else is included in the update, though carriers typically use any software update to make sure that performance tweaks and bugs are fixed, too.

You can manually check for your update in the settings menu. Hopefully Android 4.4 KitKat is on its way, too, though we wouldn’t be entirely surprised if this is the last major build for the Galaxy S4 Active.
