Moto X on Republic Wireless getting KitKat update

Prepaid carrier Republic Wireless launched the Moto X in November last year, and now, more than five months later, it is starting to roll out the Android 4.4 KitKat update to users. The update has come rather late, especially when you look at how quick Motorola has been rolling out updates recently, but like they say, better is late than never.

The update is 349 MB in size and brings the usual Android 4.4 goodies, includes faster performance and reduced RAM usage, a redesigned status bar with white icons, full-screen immersive mode, a new phone dialer with automatic caller ID, wireless printing support, options to set the default launcher and SMS apps, and general stability improvements, along with a new version of Google Hangouts (not the one that rolled out yesterday, however.)

You should be seeing the notification for the update right away if you’re on a Wi-Fi connection. If not, you can check manually in the Settings » About phone » System update » Update Motorola software menu, though you should keep in mind that it could take a day or two before anything shows up on your device.
