The No.3 carrier today rolled out a software update for its variant of the HTC One M8. Those some Android fans might not be too happy after they see that this update doesn’t bump up the software to Android 4.4.4. Instead they will have to make do with this Android 4.4.3 update which not only brings a couple of improvements for the overall system but also adds the Wi-Fi calling feature to this 2014 flagship.
Sprint has slowly been rolling out the Wi-Fi calling feature over the past couple of weeks and most of the high-end devices on its network now support this feature. It allows users to make voice calls over a Wi-Fi network so this feature comes in handy when network reception is not good or totally non-existent.
Android 4.4.3 brings several improvements for the overall system as well, bug fixes and performance improvements mostly. Sprint doesn’t mention any other changes in the changelog though it does say that users will see an HD Voice icon in the status bar.
That just about all there is to the latest software update for the Sprint HTC One M8. Since the carrier usually releases software updates in stages it may not be available for all users at once. It may take a while for the update to go live across all regions, but it will land on all supported devices nonetheless.
