Test software available today, brings everything from KitKat, NFC card emulation and better camera software
The soak test for Verizon's Moto X that we told you about last week is now live, and participants can confirm that it is indeed Android 4.4 we're dealing with. Of course, this brings a slew of new changes, and it so happens that a partial list is available for people who might want to know what to expect when installing this update.
The Motorola team told us all from Brazil to expect KitKat soon on our Moto X phones, and it looks like even Verizon wants it to be soon. We expect this test to be a little longer than the few hours the last one was, so don't fret if you don't see KitKat on a grand roll-out right away. There's also no word on when we'll see testing or an update for any other Moto X, though little birds say it will be very, very soon.
Hit the break to see the supposed changes, including NFC Host Card emulation for Google Wallet.
Thanks everyone who sent this in!
Hopefully, this fixes the issues of Driving mode and using Hangouts for the default SMS application. We'll all know shortly!
