Motorola releases Android 4.4 KitKat update for Verizon Moto X

New, 233 comments

Motorola announced today that the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Verizon version of the Moto X would begin its rollout. This deploy comes a mere three weeks since KitKat was officially launched with the Nexus 5, an impressive turnaround to say the least (it also beats Google to releasing the update for Google Play Experience smartphones and some Nexus devices). Motorola says the update includes many of the KitKat enhancements, such as the interface refresh and smart dialer. But Motorola doesn't mention the Google Experience launcher in its release notes, and it seems that is still an exclusive to the Nexus 5. Verizon users should get notifications on their Moto X devices starting today, and the company says that it will announce other carrier rollouts "very soon."
