Samsung has been busy lately with their updates and now they started rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Galaxy S4 in India. The company has promised last year that they will keep their smartphones updates and it seems like they’re doing a good job.
Just a few hours ago we found out about the KitKat update for AT&T users and now comes India. The update’s baseband version is i9500DDUFNA4 and it should be rolling out to everyone over-the-air by tomorrow.
If you haven’t received your update yet, you should try to check for it manually. In order to do that, head over to Settings > About > Software update and tap on Update. It’s recommended to do updates via WiFi, because they could incur in data charges.
For those who aren’t going to receive their update OTA for various reasons, we are going to write a good to help you update your smartphone manually. We will also offer you the update file to download directly on your smartphone.
If you were curious what the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update comes with, then you should know there are quite a bit of improvements. Google Hangouts now replaces your stock messaging app, so you can send and receive SMS and MMS messages with it.
Full-screen immersive mode and the translucent system UI are also included, along with Google Cloud Print, which allows you to print documents directly from your Galaxy S4.
The update also comes with the new dialer, that searches unknown numbers on local listings and Google Maps in order to let you know who the dialer is, if the app finds him.
