AT&T Moto X gets Android 4.4.4 with new dialer, camera improvements


Following last month’s successful soak test, AT&T is now pushing out the hefty Android 4.4.4 over-the-air (OTA) update to all its carrier-branded Moto X handsets currently located in the U.S. Together with the latest build of the open-source operating system, this upgrade brings a modernized dialer application, the ability to pause video recording within the camera app, as well as the habitual bug fixes and stability improvements.

The full changelog for the build 212.44.26 update can be seen below:

  • Android 4.4.4 KitKat is the latest release of the Android platform. This release includes accuracy improvements to the power profile, several stability, framework and security fixes including update to OpenSSL.
  • Improved camera image quality including better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash coloring, improved photos in low light conditions using front camera.
  • Added the ability to pause video recording with a convenient pause/resume button on the viewfinder.
  • Updated Phone dialer with new graphical layout and colors to improve consistency and usability.

The newest version of the operating system is being pushed out in stages, as is he norm. If you don’t feel like waiting for a notification confirming that its ready for your device, you can search for the update manually. To do this simply head into “Settings,” then “About Device,” and select “Check for Updates’ or ‘Software Updates.’

This upgrade means that Sprint’s version of the Moto X is the only model yet to receive the 4.4.4 KitKat update, but, thankfully, we’re starting to see signs suggesting that a soak test is already underway — so it shouldn’t be too much longer now.
