T-Mobile has started to update their smartphones to Android 4.4.2 KitKat and today we have the LG G2, which already has the available update, but it’s not rolling out OTA, unfortunately. The update brings the LG G2 to software version D80120a and 3.4.0 kernel.
The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for your LG G2 will have to be downloaded from their support website and installed manually with the LG Mobile Support tool, as over the air update is not available for the moment.
LG G2 will now benefit from Android 4.4.2 KitKat’s features, like the new called ID, unified Hangouts messaging, Emoji, WiFi and Bluetooth printing, Location Settings and the all-new full-screen mode.
KitKat comes with the new version of Hangouts, that replaces Android’s stock messaging app and can send and receive SMS and MMS. The new called ID is now able to search a phone number on Local Search and Google Maps in order to let you know who’s calling you, even if you don’t have the contact stored in your phone.
Location Settings offer you a way of enabling or disabling specific location detection features in order to save battery and it also shows you how much battery each feature is using.
Android 4.4.2 KitKat’s new built-in wireless printing feature, allows you to print files, documents or photos wirelessly directly from your LG G2. The new full-screen mode allows apps to run in a totally full-screen mode, so you can use the entire display, without being bothered by the menu or notifications bar. Once you swipe down from the top of the screen, the buttons and notifications bar will show up.
