Motorola has released the latest KitKat software with Android version 4.4.4 for its affordable Moto G smartphone for users in the UK.

Motorola, earlier this month, confirmed the Android 4.4.4 global roll out for its smartphones. The update includes all the Android 4.4.3 goodies, as Motorola had skipped the previous KitKat firmware for some of its devices. It brings a new dialer app, the ability to pause during video recording, enhanced camera image quality and enhanced security for OpenSSL.

Android Central, after receiving reports from users, confirms that Android 4.4.4 is now seeding for Moto G in the UK.

The update has been released for Vodafone subscribers, which means Moto G owners having other wireless carriers will have to wait for some time for the OTA update.
