KitKat for the Verizon LG G2 now rolling out over the air

LG G2 Verizon Wireless

After reporting yesterday that the KitKat update for the Verizon Wireless LG G2 was finally ready — but only accessible via LG’s installer for Windows PCs — that same update is now officially available and rolling out over the air. If you haven’t been prompted (and don’t feel like hassling with plugging in/installing extra software), you can now jump into your Settings > About phone > Software update > Check new > to pull the update on your G2 manually.

Verizon LG G2 KitKat OTA update

Having rolled out for all other major US carriers), Verizon’s LG G2 finally joins its brothers and sisters in the winners circle. Aside from bringing all the usual KitKat goodies, you should see some minor improvements to LG’s UI, as well as compatibility with KitKat-only apps like Google’s recently released Google Camera app. Enjoy!

    Be warned that many people are having problems with Google Music on G2 KitKat. It stops frequently with couldn’t play selected track errors. It happens whether streaming on LTE or wifi, or even playing locally cached tracks. No amount of clearing data/uninstalling/reinstalling fixes it.

    • Usaamah

      Use Poweramp, much better than Google music.

      • bos

        Just about any other music app is better than Google music, but none of them can do All Access.

    Has anyone else have the battery drain faster since the kit kat update. I use to have my screen set at 70 percent on. 4.2.2 now it’s at 40 percent and the battery drains a lot faster now. So if anyone has any ideas please let me know thanks

    • br

      You have to let the battery drain a couple of cycles..

  • toomuchgame441
