Moto G’s launch event was filled with promises of the device getting a “guaranteed” Android 4.4 update in January 2014 and it seems that Motorola has kept its word after all. It has now been confirmed that the much awaited Kit Kat update for the Moto G is now rolling out worldwide.
Starting today, most regions across the world will be able to get the KitKat update on their Moto G. There have already been several reports from Germany indicating that they’ve received the newest version of Android. Another country that might get the update really soon is the United Kingdom, as Motorola itself posted the update details on the company’s U.K. website. As time goes on, more and more countries will be receiving the Android 4.4 update, following the other regions.
Motorola was acquired by Google last year, and since then it has changed a lot in their smartphone area. The biggest and most important change, is the inclusion of an almost stock Android, as this attracts a lot of consumers that want the stock Android experience without having to purchase a Nexus device. The new update follows this, as it is extremely close to stock, and adds all of the features found in Android 4.4.2. For the full list of changes make sure to head over to the official Motorola website, here.
If you want to successfully download and install this OTA update, make sure you have at least 200MB of free space on your Moto G, as the update weighs around 175MB. If you still haven’t received the OTA update, just be patient, Android updates in general get rolled out in waves, so just wait a bit more.
