Motorola announced the Moto G smartphone late last year and it was one of the first devices, after Google’s Nexus crop, to receive the brand new Android 4.4 KitKat update. Though at that time the update was only rolled out to Moto G units sold in the U.S. The company said that KitKat would be released for other markets in 2014. January has started and 2014 is finally here, and it appears that Motorola has kept its word. Reports coming in from various countries around the globe indicate that the KitKat international roll out has now begun.
Moreover, Motorola has posted details about the Android 4.4 KitKat update for Moto G on its official UK website, which confirms that a broader roll out is now under way. Even if the update isn’t immediately available in your region, it should pop up in the very near future. The Moto G Android 4.4 KitKat update weighs in at about 175MB, it can be downloaded over Wi-Fi and will automatically install once its downloaded on the device. Since Motorola now uses near-stock Android on its mobile devices, the changelog isn’t too long, it merely lists all of the features and improvements that are offered as part and parcel of KitKat.
