One thing that most people dislike about Android phones is that software updates often take ages to arrive even if they have been out for a long time. At first the OEMs have to ensure that the update is fit for release and then the carriers have to weigh in as well. This can push the release back by weeks if not months. Same is the case with Moto X on AT&T. The device is sitting on Android 4.4.2 right now but today the carrier has released the Android 4.4.4 update to a select few that are participating in the soak test.
For those who don’t know what a soak test is, its essentially a small scale test of the update to ensure that its ready for primetime. Once the testers determine that there are no bugs or issues to take care of the roll out can start.
What it also means is that the final release isn’t that far off. Moto X has received previous releases fairly quickly and there’s no reason to believe that the Android 4.4.4 update for AT&T’s Moto X should take more than a week now.
Barring any unforeseen issues the final roll out of Android 4.4.4 for AT&T Moto X should take place soon.
