The AT&T Moto X is now getting the Android 4.4 update in the U.S., just as the T-Mobile and Verizon variants got the update earlier this week. The update will bring a completely new UI and all new icons. Since the Moto X runs a relatively stock version of Android, it features most of the changes which we saw on the Nexus 5, barring the Google Experience launcher of course.
It’s not a surprise that the Moto X is getting the Android 4.4 update this soon, given the company’s association with Google. The smartphone runs on its custom X8 chipset, which comes bundled with some neat software features like the Always-on Mic and Active Notifications. These features have gotten even better with the Android 4.4 update.
Motorola has announced the update for other smartphones as well, so it’s not only the Moto X which is getting KitKat love this early. The recently announced Moto G smartphone will actually launch with Android 4.4 in some regions.
