If you have been feeling stuck on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on your AT&T Galaxy Note 2 for far too long there’s good news for you today. The carrier finally started rolling out the much awaited KitKat update for this popular phablet. The AT&T Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.4 KitKat update should have already landed on stock devices today, finally bringing all of the chocolatey goodness of KitKat.
Some of the changes users can expect to see immediately after the update include new lock screen access controls. KitKat makes it possible to view full-screen album art and access media controls from the lock screen itself. A camera shortcut is also placed on the lock screen for easier access to the shooter.
Those who like to use multiple messaging applications will get an improved user experience, and a full-screen immersive mode makes photos, videos, books, maps and other content look even better.
AT&T Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.4 update also brings a restyled status and navigation bar which can now sit on top of apps and happen to be translucent. Status bar icons have been simplified. Beats Music, the music streaming service that’s now owned by Apple, comes pre-loaded in this update.
The update should automatically land on devices that are running stock firmware, it rolls out over the air. One can try to manually pull the download but a little patience would certainly not go unrewarded.
