A new report suggests that Android 4.4.1 is being tested already and could be rolled out to compatible devices in the coming weeks. As the version number probably indicates, it’s nothing major and will mostly introduce bug fixes and some other nagging issues. The Nexus 5 is known to have some issues according to voices concerned on various forums, so we’re hoping those issues are addressed with this update. It’s still not known as to when the update will officially start rolling out, but the Nexus 5 and the rest of the Nexus lineup which got the Android 4.4 update will be eligible.
Some devices in the Santa Clara region in California already seem to have Android 4.4.1 running on their Nexus devices, who could well be Google employees as Santa Clara is close to Mountain View. This information was revealed by the folks at 9 t0 5 Google who checked their traffic data and found Android 4.4.1 running on the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7 tablet. Since this is not a major update, we don’t expect Google to announce this update formally, so we’ll have to wait till the update notification starts popping up on Nexus devices to get a glimpse of the changelog.
