According to a new report, Google is believed to have taken internal testing of Android 4.4.3 outside the core Android team, which is a process known as “Dogfooding”. This usually indicates that a release is imminent, although there’s no confirmation of a timeline from Google yet.
Android 4.4.3 is expected to bring a few bug fixing patches on board, particularly for the Nexus 5 which is suffering from the battery drain bug at the moment. Android 4.4.3 will be known as KitKat MR2 while Android 4.4.1 and 4.4.2 were tagged as KitKat MR1.
It is said that only Nexus devices within the Google campus are included in the dogfooding at the moment with Moto X and other GPe devices in its vicinity slated to get the update a few days from now. The OTA for us normal users could be weeks away though, so it’s not really exciting news at the moment. However, we can expect Google to roll out the update quickly, at least to users of the Nexus 5 as that’s the only device affected by the battery drain issue.
It is said that the update only contains fixes and enhancements with no word on any new features yet.
