Galaxy S5 owners on AT&T are receiving a new software update today but at no point should they get their hopes up. The carrier hasn’t released Android 5.0 Lollipop even though its about time that it came out with the new software. Instead the AT&T Galaxy S5 Android 4.4.4 update has been released which brings the device up from its current software version that’s Android 4.4.2. The 487MB update adds one feature, lots of bloatware and brings stability and performance fixes for the device.
Android 5.0 Lollipop roll out for Galaxy S5 has already begun in the U.S. Verizon is the first carrier to roll out this update for Galaxy S5 owners. AT&T hasn’t provided a time frame as yet in which we can expect it to roll out Lollipop.
The latest software update for AT&T Galaxy S5 SM-G900A brings up the device from Android 4.4.2 to Android 4.4.2. All of the security related fixes that were made in this update are included apart from bug fixes and miscellaneous improvements.
The smartphone receives support for HD Voice or AT&T’s voice over LTE feature and that’s the only major addition made by Android 4.4.4 for this device.
Users also get some more bloatware in the form of apps included within the update. Remote Support, AT&T Live, Uber and ATT Mail apps will automatically be installed once the Galaxy S5 is updated.
