If you are a subscriber to the Republic Wireless phone carrier network and own the Motorola Moto G you should look out for a new software update coming your way. The new version updates the operating system to Android 4.4.4 KitKat over the old Android 4.4.2 KitKat. While the downside with subscribing to one the lesser known networks in the United States is that you don’t get updates as quickly, the upside is the amount of customer care that comes along with the same. Just check out this official change-log issued by the team. You wouldn’t find that much love in one post from any other company including the Big Red.
As you can see from the official community page, the RW team are rolling out the same update to all three of the devices in the Motorola name including the Moto X and the baby Moto E. While the company is stating all three are getting the new software update, it’s mentioned the Moto X variant isn’t finding the software coming until February.
According to the official support page, the Android 4.4.4 KitKat comes with immersive mode, a redesigned phone application with your contacts in mind, activation process, new functionality and performance improvements. No doubt there are loads of bug fixes inside also, even though it’s not listed on the official support page. Furthermore, we know 4.4.4 KitKat to come with a revamped phone dialer with a different font and a different shade of blue. However, that doesn’t come for all devices and it looks like it isn’t coming inside this build.
The “product guy” also goes on to say that even though we are skipping the 4.4.3 update, the same features will still be available, plus the other features that are coming with the 4.4.4. Therefore, it isn’t really skipping anything, but rather including everything in a bundle.
The main gist of Android Kitkat lies with the earlier 4.4.2 build which comes with a bevy of features including new location menu, wireless and cloud printing, new emoji icons, full screen album at from the lock screen, white status bar, white navigation bar and movie art from the lock screen. There’s no installment that comes close to satisfying like that one we mentioned before.
The next major update is coming with Android 5.0 Lollipop. Since everybody is witnessing Lollipop rolling out to many devices and creating a great deal of buzz, the product guy touches base on where they are at with the Lollipop for the three devices under their network. You can read up on his official words by looking at the changelog above.
