HTC may already be working on bringing Android 5.0 Lollipop to the flagship One M8, but those on AT&T are just receiving the latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat update. In addition to performance and battery life improvements, the release brings HD Voice and other new features.
The main focus of this update is on security enhancements and some welcome improvements to Bluetooth performance, AT&T says. But the carrier has baked a number of new features in, too — the most exciting of which is HD Voice, which lets you call friends on compatible devices over the data network for better call quality.
This build also updates AT&T’s Ready2Go and Visual Voicemail apps, and adds a Usage Manager app, which helps you keep a closer eye on your data usage. Users will also find the “Copy and Paste” camera feature is also present.
AT&T’s complete change log is as follows:
- Enables HD Voice
- UpdatesAndroid OS to Android 4.4.4
- Security enhancement
- Bluetooth enhancement
- Adds AMBS Cloud Messaging Integration
- Adds Copy and Paste camera feature
- Adds Usage Manager App
- Improves battery performance
- Updates AT&T Ready2Go
- Updates Visual Voicemail
This update is rolling out now over-the-air, so if you haven’t already received an update notification, you should do soon. You can also search for it manually within the Software Update section of the Settings app.
Update: Apparently this update isn’t happening and AT&T has since pulled the materials from its site.
