We’ve been following the Moto G for quite sometime (ever since we discovered its trademark back in October). In our travels, we watched as the budget device launched on Verizon Wireless — for $100, no less — and with a promise that it would soon be receiving Android 4.4 KitKat. Today is that special day for Moto G users, as 4.4.2 KitKat is reportedly rolling out to the device.
This brings the Verizon Moto G up to speed with its GSM counterparts and users can expect the usual KitKat treats (improved phone dialer, photo editing, restyled status/navigation bars, etc.), along with Motorola’s recently updated apps available on Google Play. To manually check for the update, see instructions below.
- Touch Settings
- Touch About phone
- Touch System updates
There’s just no denying the value in an off-contract device for $100, running on KitKat, and operating on Verizon’s superior wireless network. Anyone else enjoying their update?
