Verizon’s version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has started receiving the Android 4.4.4 update today. The carrier is also bringing some much needed improvements to the device along with the update, so it’s not a minor firmware update.
Verizon claims that apart from fixing Android related bugs, the update also brings a patch for the pertinent Bluetooth bug which restricted audio while the WiFi was toggled on. The LTE data connectivity is also seemingly improved and so is the overall call reception. You can check the complete changelog for the update from Verizon’s support page linked below.
On Samsung’s side, the update introduces Kids Mode, Knox 2.0 and a virtual tour mode for the camera app. The update should change the software version to N900VVRUDNJ6. The smartphone hasn’t seen the Android 4.4.3 update as the last update it received was Android 4.4.2 back in May. So the device is skipping one version to make the jump to Android 4.4.4.
Bear in mind that you might lose root access on your smartphone after installing this update, so make sure you’re aware of that before proceeding. The update is rolling out in stages but should reach the entirety of the U.S. before the end of the day.
