android-kitkat

We could be close to a launch of Android 4.4.3 soon, with reports suggesting Google has started the dogfooding process internally (which means their engineers and employees are using it internally to help find and crush those last annoying bugs keeping them from unleashing the update onto the masses).

Of course, this update might not be huge in terms of new features, but it will be important. For starters, we’re waiting on an answer to the battery drain bug triggered by background initialization of device cameras. Skype was an app that caused this bug to flare more often than not, though the company has already developed a workaround while we await Google’s official fix.

There are sure to be a few more hidden nasties trotting about inside the code that Google wants to address, but until we get a solid changelog we won’t know what, exactly, they are. Fingers crossed that whatever they have cooked up isn’t far off from being released.
