Google Devices for Edu

App that helps schools set up tablets mentions Android 4.4.3 in recent changelog

Android 4.4.3 still hasn't been officially announced or anything, but it's still officially pinging our servers, and not in a way that suggests it's just kids playing with their build.prop file. And on April 16 the Google Edu Device Setup app — an official app straight from Google that helps set up tablets purchased through Google Apps for Education — was updated for Android 4.4.3 support.

The changelog reads thusly:

  • Support for new Google Spreadsheets
  • Support for Android 4.4.3 and non-Nexus Tablets
  • Minor UI updates and bug fixes

So, yeah. Android 4.4.3 is still incoming. Last week was saw Sprint announce an update for its Nexus 5, though no version number was specifically mentioned, and Sprint removed the reference to the update after a few days.

Wait, we shall.

Thanks, @JonMatthews89, for the tip!

The Android 4.4.3 KitKat update has been all but confirmed for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 and rumors suggest that an Android 4.4.3 KitKat release could come sometime within the next week. Nexus users, especially those who have been dealing with Android 4.4.2 KitKat problems since last year are on edge.

Android 4.4.3 KitKat is shaping up to be a crucial update for Nexus users and perhaps, users on other devices as well. The update is reportedly coming with three dozen fixes or so that are aimed at stabilizing the Android 4.4 KitKat software ahead of Google’s next big software update, rumored to be Android 4.5.

4.4.3 Hasn't been released yet, so I'm guessing we have another hour or two before people start bitching about Verizon being late with the update.

bhatech says:

We don't have to bitch since Nexus and gpe are not compatible with useless Verizon CDMA. People that are using Verizon are happy with ugly branded Verizon logo phones irrespective of what android version it runs.

Well said

Not me I love my moto g on Verizon, and I'm very happy not to have a Verizon branded handset and just to have the service and coverage!! I like that I can choose how much data because I hate paying for data then I don't use it all before the month is over. Just glad it's not BRANDED BY VERIZON!!!!

Ummmm, you do realize that there are place where Big Red is the only service provider available. I mean that was their plan 8-12 years ago when they were buying the market... Not to be on the Vzw bandwagon b/c I'm going to T-Mo this summer b/c I actually dont like their direction but hey Big Red does know how to make phone calls lol.

thanks for reminding me.

If you're running a custom ROM, like 99% of the people who give a fuk about android updates are, then yes, you are.

I actually like VZW. Its not as fast as AT&T, for sure, but its cheaper. And they do have a nice selection of phones now. I switched a few weeks back and am happy.

How did this go from a topic about Android 4.4.3, to everyone having a conversation about Verizon? Lol. Well, since we're on that subject - Verizon is WAY overpriced for their mediocre speeds/coverage (at least around Atlanta, Georgia)! In this area, Sprint is the best carrier by a landslide!! 30mbps download LTE basically everywhere I go, plus I have unlimited data, texting, minutes, annual upgrades, AND they are the cheapest carrier (that isn't pre-paid, which all have mediocre(at best) coverage around here anyway)!! Win win win

Podolsky says:

Lol I thought same thing, Android topic and most of all talking about vzw lol

Posted from my new Nexus 5

Curious, I get full coverage and average speeds of 40 mbps down all around the Atlanta metro with Verizon.

hmmm says:

So that app in the OP is ONLY compatible with 4.4.3? They aren't going to have too many hits doing that.
