Motorola Gallery app

Punit Soni to field questions live with #AskMoto hashtag

Motorola has made a big deal out of bringing several of its devices' core functionalities out into the Play Store for easy updating, and it is now marking the milestone of 50 updates to over 15 apps over the last 8 months. Touchless Control, Active Display, Motorola Camera and Gallery are just a few of the apps updated regularly through Google Play rather than a complete system update, and to celebrate the accomplishment Motorola is hosting a live Hangout on Air to talk software.

Punit Soni will be leading the event, and is requesting questions from the public — simply post with the hashtag #AskMoto on Google+, Facebook or Twitter to ask your question, and hopefully Punit will read it during the event. Thanks, questions and suggestions are all welcomed, he says, and while the number of questions is sure to balloon to an unanswerable number, it may be worth watching.

The Hangout on Air will kick off at 1:00pm PT on Wednesday, April 23rd, and you can RSVP to watch at the Google+ event page below.

They are happy that the pushed out primarily bug fixes, and changed boot animations? Meanwhile the Latest Droids are still missing 4.2.2, and (on the 4.2 base) and all kinds of other droids are left hanging.

Droid is only 50% Moto, so who do you think is this problem to blame?

jakeuten says:

Functionality added, was extremely minor to none at all. How about google sphere integration for the camera? or maybe more things to do with the low power sensors like health tracking or an API that devs can tap into for it.

My Droid Maxx was running 4.4 out of the box.

I'm still waiting for my uscc electrify m to get KitKat. Was promised months ago before any of these other phones were confirmed and now some of the other phones have actually gotten it. When will we get it? When there's already new software and we don't care nemore .

mtmerrick says:

it should come out quite soon after the razr m gets it.

radgatt says:

Seeing some complaints in this comment section. I guess the hangout session is the place that you all can address your concerns directly...

TheIowaKid says:

Always Debbies. In the tech world, no one can be satisfied and happy apparently.

icebike says:

Bringing built in apps to the play store for updates is really HALF a solution.

These apps don't replace what was on the phone originally. They just ADD to the bloat with yet another version while leaving the original sitting in the main software blob, with out the ability to be un-installed.

When they stop pounding all of these apps into the original software load then we will be getting somewhere.
