Moto X’s Now Getting Android 4.4 Update From Sprint


Just yesterday, I reported that Motorola had finally posted the official update documents on its website for an upcoming update for the Sprint-branded variant of its flagship smartphone, the Moto X, and already tons of reports have been flying in confirming that residents in the U.S. have now started receiving the much-anticipated upgrade. In addition to the latest build of 4.4 KitKat, the update also brings a truckload of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations for the handset, as well as the implementation of a couple of new features.

The full changelog for the update, build 161.44.32, can be seen below:

  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS.
  • Printing documents and pictures: Added support for printing photos, Google Docs, GMail messages, and other content via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and hosted services like Google Cloud Print and HP ePrinters.
  • Improved battery life: Fixed bugs which caused a small number of users to experience shorter battery life after upgrading to Android 4.4.
  • Fixed email sync delays: Fixed a bug that could cause email services like Microsoft Exchange to experience intermittent delays in data synchronization.

If you own a Sprint-branded Moto X and have not yet received the OTA update, you can head into “Settings,” then “About Device,” and select “Check for Updates” to manually scan for the upgrade. Alternatively, you can wait until you receive a push notification on your handset prompting you to download and install the update when it’s ready for your handset.
