The HTC One using the Google Camera App

We hear just last week the HTC One Google Play Edition might be receiving Android 4.4 KitKat “soon.” It looks like “soon” came a little sooner than we had anticipated as it’s being reported Android 4.4 KitKat is now rolling out to HTC One Google Edition handsets.

News of the rollout comes from an XDA Developers user who claims they have received the official over-the-air update for the HTC One Google Edition, which means you should start checking your phone as much as possible as you could very well be receiving the update some time soon as well.

The Android 4.4 KitKat update will add a number of much-welcomed enhancements to the HTC One Google Play Edition, one of which will include the ability to call attention to your phone by saying “OK, Google.” Other improvements include a more streamlined interface, an improved camera application, battery life and an overall boost in speed.

HTC One Google Edition owners should check their settings to see if the Android 4.4 KitKat update is available, or if you would prefer to take the update into your own hands, you can download the update from the following XDA Developers link. Regular, old HTC One owners should be getting Android 4.4 KitKat some time in January in the U.S.
