Google Play edition Galaxy S4 also receiving Android 4.4 update

The other shoe drops

Following up on confirmed reports that the Google Play edition HTC One was receiving its update to Android 4.4, the GPe Galaxy S4 has its own update. With a quick mention on the official Android Google+ page, we now know that both Google Play editions have their update just a matter of days after Nexus devices.

This follows the release of open-source files for both devices by the manufacturers early this morning, which is usually a good tip that the full-blown updates will hit soon thereafter. Seeing the update yet? Let members know in the forums how the process went.

Update: Here's the direct download link from Google's servers for those of you wanting to manually sideload the update.
