Moto G Android KitKat 4.4.2 software update reaches Verizon network

See also

Moto G owners on the Verizon network are beginning to receive the latest Android KitKat 4.4.2 software update on their devices. The wireless carrier is pushing the new software installation files directly to Moto G devices over-the-air (OTA).

When the Moto G made its debut on the Verizon network in January, it ran Android 4.3 Jelly Bean fresh out of the box. As Android Central reports (Feb. 4), the KitKat 4.4.2 update is landing in U.S. three weeks after the European model of the Moto G began getting its software refresh.

Along with the Android KitKat 4.4.2 update comes the most recent Motorola apps and overall system improvements. Verizon Moto G owners can expect to see changes to the user interface such as a new phone dialer, emojis and enhancements to printing support. The new update also features version 2.0 of Hangouts which can be set up to handle SMS and MMS messages.

Android KitKat 4.4.2 OTA updates should begin showing up on Moto G handsets in the form of an on screen notification. Users can also check for the new Android KitKat Moto G update by navigating to Menu>Settings>System Update. Carriers tend to roll out software updates in phases so some device owners won’t receive the new firmware right away.
