Customers who have signed up for Motorola’s soak testing of the Moto X on AT&T will start seeing the update to Android 4.4.4 hitting today. Going by this, regular users of the smartphone should get the update in the coming days. A soak test is usually issued to users ahead of time to rectify any issues with the update before the mass rollout.
Although the update isn’t all that different from Android 4.4.3, AT&T is bringing the ability to hide the carrier name from the status bar, which could be a better look for some users. This is a feature implemented by Motorola with Android 4.4.3, after users complained that notifications weren’t visible at the top with the carrier name interfering.
However, with this update, the carrier name automatically disappears whenever there’s a notification waiting for the user. But AT&T is also offering the option to remove it completely, which is a good touch. At 151MB, this isn’t not your conventional bug fixing update, so make a note of that before downloading it.
