Motorola started sending out Android 4.4.4 through a soak test to the Verizon Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini smartphones a few days ago. And starting yesterday, the update is now being sent out to all devices with the complete changelog available as well. The update will be rolled out through an OTA over the coming days, although customers can manually navigate to the settings and download it as well.
The three handsets are updating directly from Android 4.4.2, so things will be noticeably different with Android 4.4.4. Since Motorola decided to skip Android 4.4.3, users will finally be able to see the all new dialer which was introduced by Google with the update. Other crucial changes can be found in the changelog below:
- Camera: Improved camera image quality including better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash coloring, improved photos in low light conditions using front camera.
- Camera: Added the ability to pause video recording with a convenient pause/resume button on the viewfinder.
- Updated Verizon applications: VZ Cloud and Visual Voicemail application (VVM3.)
- Added Isis mobile wallet application for contactless payment for Droid Ultra users on Verizon.
- Fixed Bluetooth connectivity issue
- Enables Motorola Alert Application download
Surprisingly, the update has made its way to the trio of Droid smartphones first while the Moto X is yet to get the update. But Verizon promises to rollout the update for its variant of the Moto X relatively soon, so the wait shouldn’t be too long.
