Droid Maxx update

Camera improvements, better power usage and the same visual styling as Jelly Bean

Following nearly a month after notice of an Android 4.4 KitKat soak test for Motorola's new droid devices, the update has resumed its rollout to the general public. It isn't typical to see such a delay between the initial rollout and wide-scale availability, but we of course prefer Verizon and Motorola get all of the kinks worked out before pushing to everyone.

The software brings the Droid Mini, Ultra and Maxx up to feature parity with the Moto X — you'll have access to the new Immersive Mode, camera improvements and a general tightening of the screws. Verizon support documents also note that the update adds Fitbit support and a new version of Droid Zap. Somewhat curiously, the update doesn't seem to change a single portion of the interface visually — everything looks the exact same to our eyes as it did back on Android 4.2.

We've just pulled down the latest update on our own Droid Maxx and are soaking in the KitKat goodness ourselves. Have you received the update on your own Droid outside of the soak test? Be sure to hop into the forums and join the discussion about the latest software improvements.
