Motorola Moto E, Moto X and Moto G

Motorola India announced on Twitter today that it is rolling out the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update to users in the country, with the Moto X, Moto E and the Moto G set to receive the OTA update shortly.

The Android 4.4.4 update will bring several stability and security fixes as well as a new dialer and an improved interface. Also new with the update is wider availability of Moto Alert, a feature that debuted originally on the Moto E. Another feature that has made its way to the Moto X and the Moto G is the ability to pause and subsequently resume a video recording.

As is usually the case with these updates, it might be a while before all users receive it. Indian users, are you excited about how fast the update has made its way to the country? What feature are you looking forward to the most?

Motorola starts rolling out Android 4.4.4 KitKat to users in India


Lately sprint has been #1 in updates first for phones, and verizon has finally fell backwards again taking 1-2 months to get updates out. Last year for the first 6 months Verizon was shooting out updates like it had the Trots.

Let's hope when Lenovo takes over in September that they will keep to fast updates for their products with Moto, hope they have some type of agreement with Google when it sells.

Was thinking the same about At&t. Any chance that new dialer supports landscape?

Looking forward to the European release. Mostly to the phone app which, as much as I have understood, will allow me to disable carrier-info in the status bar (mine almost takes up the whole bar on my X).

As far as I can see, there's also still nothing for the Verizon Developer Edition either.

I got 4.4.4 in the U.S. about a week ago with Ehndroix V ROM. If your looking for a custom rom for the moto g, I recommend this one.

OK no more 4.4.3 so I'm assuming no one is gonna get it because Android 4.4.4 is a security update, which addresses issues within the Open SSL protocol. So basically Moto is jumping straight into 4.4.4 now. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Nexus got 4.4.3 two months ago and 4.4.4 last month. Am not happy with the update speed at all especially since Moto Skin basically looks like android 4.2/4.3 jellybean. They better announce right now how much time they gonna take to Launch Android L on the Moto G if at all we get it.

In the beginning, they used to say that Motorola Moto G would be among the first few devices (even at par with Nexus devices) to receive future Android OTA updates. This was one of the prime reasons for a few people like me to buy it. But alas, problems started soon. The device would suddenly lose network signals while in some particular areas (with weak signals?). Contacted Motorola support but no satisfactory reply. Then came consecutive announcements of KK 4.4.3 and 4.4.4 updates and one was elated and hoped that these updates would resolve the signal drop problems. But then one is waiting and waiting. Exasperated, resorted to rooting and switching over to Cyanogenmod. Now I am enjoying Kitkat 4.4.4. on my Motorola G at the cost of voiding the warranty and network signal drop problem has not gone fully yet. In the final analysis, the Motorola G experience has not been a pleasant one for me. Anyway, thank you Motorola.

After updating KitKat 4.4.4 in my moto e, I am unable to play .mkv video file it gives error unsupported video for android version pls tell me how can I solve this issues

Reverted to Stock Kitkat 4.4.2 again on my Moto G three days ago and received Kitkat 4.4.4 OTA. Played with it for a day and then installed Xposed and Gravity Box mainly to have Heads Up Notifications. I love them. And then yesterday flashed EHNDROIX Rom and it is working well since then.
