T-Mobile Moto X now receiving Android 4.4 KitKat

Moto X KitKat

Great news Moto X users on T-Mobile. Motorola has updated their original blog post announcing the rollout of Android 4.4 KitKat for the Moto X on Verizon to include T-Mobile as well. The update brings all the fun stuff from KitKat — new Dialer app, improved photo editing tools, enhanced camera app — along with Motorola’s killer feature, Touchless Controls. There’s a little more packed in there as well. Here’s the official changelog:

  • An improved phone dialer – Now you can search for contacts directly from the dial-pad and easily see and tap on those you contact frequently.
  • More gallery goodies - KitKat packs in some cool, new gallery effects—such as Posterize, Highlights, and Edges. You can even use the Draw feature to annotate your photos freehand with your finger.
  • New Hangouts app – All of your conversations now in one place—texts, video calls, and other chats all together in one app. Plus, you can now send animated gifs and share your location.
  • Color Emoji – For when words aren’t enough, the Google Keyboard now includes colorful characters to send in text messages and other communications.
  • Drag to focus and expose - An updated camera app lets you control both the focus and exposure of your photos. Simply drag your finger to set just the right exposure and focus point.
  • Touchless Control - Added a new “Find my phone” command to Touchless Control. Just say “OK, Google Now-find my phone” and your Moto X will ring loudly to let you know where it’s hiding when you’ve misplaced it nearby.
  • NFC host card emulation - Enhanced support for NFC Host Card Emulation (HCE), to improve experiences such as contactless payments, loyalty plans, transit passes, card access and more.
  • Accessory support – Moto X now supports the Square credit card reader.

We know a soak test for the AT&T Moto X has already begun, so we’re thinking an public rollout will also commence shortly. Anyone else liking this new Motorola?

            Sorry. I’ve been reading too many Verge comments…

    Motorola is officially the rockstar of the android OEMs.

  • CryptoNoel

    I am happy for them…ok my next phone will be a Moto instead of a Nexus, which defeats the purpose of why I got this Nexus 4 in the first place…

    • ari_free

      Because of LG specs I guess

  • jessez93

    damn. and my poor N4 is still waiting for it to arrive..

    • Cesar Ortiz

      :(

      • jessez93

        ;( this suckzz

        • Cesar Ortiz

          It really does. We could just really sideload the updated factory image. But I don’t feel like going through all that process just for a minor update .

          • jessez93

            I’d gladly do that if I knew how lol. I’d need someone to sit down and show me the process in person.

          • Cesar Ortiz

            Its quite simple actually, the hard part is having to backup all your data again and restoring it back to your nexus 4 ): I don’t want to go through all that again.

          • jessez93

            come show me then lol. yeah, I wouldn’t wanna do that either. I have too much crap on my phone.

          • Cesar Ortiz

            lel, using commands only in the windows command prompt. You first have to install the android SDK and install google drivers on to your PC.

          • jessez93

            ..I think I’ll just continue to wait haha

          • Cesar Ortiz

            xD hahahaha, oh well. Hopefully the OTA update comes soon!! :c it takes a while using the adb commands to unlock bootloader and installling the .zip file.

          • jessez93

            hopefully by tomorrow!

          • Cesar Ortiz

            crossing my fingers that it will :/

          • Cesar Ortiz

            omg, dude, try this :
            1. Clear Google Services Framework app.
            2.Force Close Google Services Framework app.
            3. Check Again for the Update.

          • steveb944

            Google Helpouts. But I’m reading that it’s already coming OTA so no worries.

          • jessez93

            yeah I’ve read that as well. I’ll just have to be more patient I suppose.

      • jessez93

        yeah I did the force close thing and it worked lol which is funny because it never worked for previous updates. I’m so happy!!!

        • Cesar Ortiz

          Glad to help you.

  • AbbyZFresh

    Samsung better hurry up with that Tizen development and leave. Motorola is finally about to blow.

  • oh4real

    pretty astounding, actually. my developer edition got it today. sooner than friends with N4s.

    and tap and pay works. awesome!
