Some of the Nexus users were annoyed with Google that their Nexus devices haven’t received the camera-fixing upgrade to Android 4.4.1. But recently Google has started rolling-out Android 4.4.2 update for Nexus devices and those who didn’t received the 4.41 update will get the new 4.4.2 directly.
This upgrade doesn’t change much over 4.4.1, but it does bring a bevy of bug fixes that should go towards a better overall user experience.
The small update brings the firmware on the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (both generations) and the Nexus 10 to build number KOT49H.
A week ago Google an update focused on the camera performance of the Nexus 5; not all users received the 4.4.1 OTA yet, and it’s likely that 4.4.2 will roll out instead.
Android 4.4 KitKat is the newest version of Android. The name was announced by Google on September 3rd, and the operating system was released on October 31st.
Android version 4.4 requires at least 512 MB of RAM and an ARMv7 processor. As of November 2013, Android’s share of the global Smartphone market, led by Samsung products, has reached 80% and as of September 3, 2013, 1 billion Android devices have been activated.
The 4.4.2 update will resolve the following issues:
– Fix for clearing the voicemail Indicator
– Fix for delivery of the voicemail Indicator
– Various additional software fixes
– Security enhancements
The update is now available over-the-air and will reach the Smartphone’s and tablets over the next few days.
