Motorola has announced that the Android 4.4.4 update for its Moto X, Moto G and Moto E smartphones is being rolled out. The announcement on Twitter says the update will be initially rolled out in the Indian market.
The over-the-air (OTA) update is being released in phases, so not everyone will get it right away. But it should reach your phone in the coming days. Users will be notified when the update is available for their phone. Upon being notified, users will have to follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update process.
This development means Motorola is keeping its promise to roll out Android updates faster than the competition. This is possible because the company doesn't add many apps, custom UIs or layers of skins onto the core Android OS. Instead, it uses an almost stock Android OS, which only features minor tweaks.
Not only does this result in quick updates, it also appeals to users since there are many Android fans who prefer stock Android to the custom UI used by companies such as Samsung, Sony and others.
According to AndroidOS.In, since Motorola did not roll out Android 4.4.3 for any phones in India, the latest update will update the Moto X, E and G phones straight to Android 4.4.4.
The update's size is speculated to be between 50-75 MB, depending on the smartphone model.
Motorola has said that the update will include several stability, framework and security fixes as well as new phone dialer and OpenSSL-related fixes.
