Google officially released the Android 4.4.3 update for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013 two days ago and now it’s time for the Google Play Edition devices to get updated to the latest Android firmware. Users are reporting that the HTC One M7 Google Play Edition Android 4.4.3 update is now being pushed to them.
Just like any other software update, the HTC One M7 GPE Android 4.4.3 update is being rolled out in phases, which means that it may take several days until the new firmware spreads to everybody. Once your HTC One M7 Google Play Edition becomes eligible to receive the Android 4.4.3 update, you should be able to see a system update message in the notification area. If the system update notification fails to appear, you should also check for the new update manually under Settings > About phone > System updates > Check now.
Just like everybody anticipated, the Android 4.4.3 update for HTC One M7 Google Play Edition is a minor software update, so you should expect any significant changes. The most important change is the new Phone dialer app which brings a card-based interface for favorite contacts and a new color scheme for the dialer itself. Besides the new Phone dialer app, the new update also arrives with performance and stability boosts and various bug fixes.
Just like the software update rolled out for the Nexus devices (except Nexus 5), the HTC One M7 GPE Android 4.4.3 update has build number KTU84L. The update file shouldn’t be larger than 200 MB, but we’d recommend you to download it using a WiFi network in order not to damage your data plan.
