The Sony Xperia M2 smartphone is getting the Android 4.4 update starting today. This comes a week after Sony started sending out the update for the Xperia E1 and the E1 Dual
Since the smartphone was launched with Android 4.3, the update is quite significant as it introduces a multitude of new features. The handset was launched during the MWC earlier this year, so it’s still quite fresh in our memory.
You can check the complete change log for the update below:
- Google’s Android 4.4; KitKat as standard – bringing performance & UI optimisation…
- We’ve added our tweaked Status Bar and Quick Settings… now more intuitive and customisable (and pretty easy on the eye)… cleaned up to ensure you only get the notifications you really need
- If you’ve got a Sony PlayStation 4, you might recognize our new user interface – we’ve added the same sleek launch animation and live wallpaper across the lock and home screens
- Better storage choice – you now have the option to easily move applications from internal memory to SD card – we recognised the need to have more control over your content… as something particularly useful for devices with slightly less space
- We’re also uplifting Sony’s entire native app portfolio to the latest versions – bringing tweaked / improved / current experiences for (to name but a few): Messaging, Smart Connect, TrackID, What’s New, and Battery STAMINA Mode, Sony’s Media apps: WALKMAN, Album and Movies
- And proving pretty popular, now totalling over 2 million downloads (!) – our unique custom interface experience: “Xperia Themes”, with downloadable UI packs from Sony Select – skin up to 280 assets across your Xperia smartphone with a variety of styles…
- Compatibility with our SmartWear Experience; SmartBand SWR10 and Lifelog app – enabling you to record social, physical and entertainment activities and have them all visualised in a beautiful interface… reminisce at that past, make the best of the present and plan for the future
The update should be rolling out over the week, so remain patient if you don’t see the update yet. Alternatively, you can also try hitting the settings to check for an update manually.
As usual, people who own the device through a carrier might have to wait a bit longer, but you’re in luck if you have an unlocked Xperia M2. Make sure you drop a line below if you’ve already received the update on your Xperia M2.
