From the forums: What's new in Android 4.4.1?

Android 4.4.1 is upon us, and the first maintenance release of KitKat is rolling out now to certain Nexus devices. The big news that everyone's talking about relates to the many camera fixes and enhancements bestowed upon the Nexus 5, but it turns out there are also a lot of smaller changes and improvements in the new OS.

These include fixes for glitches like the Nexus 5 speaker bug and the bug that occasionally made the notification bar partly opaque. What's more, haptic feedback has been tweaked on the Nexus 5, "Photos" is now the default photo-viewing app when you swipe out of the Camera app.

We're digging through all these changes and more in a thread on the Android Central forums, which is where you'll find our working list of what's new in Android 4.4.1. Check it out below — and join the discussion if you've spotted anything new since updating.
