Verizon posts Android 4.4.4 changelog for all 2013 DROID phones

motorola-droid-2013-2

Verizon and Motorola have confirmed that their DROID devices from 2013 — including the DROID Mini, Ultra and MAXX — will be receiving Android 4.4.4 builds. Right away we can tell you not to expect much as this release was only ever meant as a maintenance upgrade. As such, the changelog is rather thin and unexciting but it’s worth taking a look at anyway. Here are the changes you can expect for each phone:

  • Android 4.4.4 KitKat: stability, framework and security improvements
  • Improved Bluetooth connectivity
  • Improved dynamic range and flourescent lighting balance in camera photos
  • Ability to pause and resume video recording
  • VZ Cloud and Visual Voicemail updates
  • ISIS Mobile Wallet app added

Nothing to write home about, but it all adds up to providing a stable user experience (and it doesn’t hurt to have all your flagship DROID devices on the absolute latest version of Android available). The upgrades should begin rolling out in stages in the weeks to come.

You can start checking for firmware 21.11.21.obake by heading to Settings > About phone > System updates. If it doesn’t show up right away that just means your device hasn’t been tapped to receive it yet, so be patient and all will be right within your DROID-filled universe.

    This update forces the ISIS Mobile Wallet app on phones. That’s great.

    Nice that VZW is getting out Moto updates out so quickly. Can’t wait for this on my Moto X. Definitely would like to see the improved camera.

    First time the latest Droid lineup got an Android update before all the other Motorola phones. Nothing major (same dialer-not the new one on Nexus phones) but works great so far. Looking forward to seeing how the updated camera app performs.

    I guess Samsung Galaxy note 4 will also come along with Android Kitkat 4.4.4

      Your link is pretty vague: “Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is expected to have the latest Android Software . It might come out with Android Kitkat 4.4.2 and would be upgradable to Android L.”
