A new Android 4.4.2 KitKat OTA update for LG G2 is being pushed to AT&T users as we speak. Even though we’re not talking about a major update, the new firmware aims to address a couple of issues that were affecting Google Wallet and Google+.
If you already updated your AT&T LG G2 to Android 4.4.2 the software update weighs only 5.59 MB, but if your handset is still running Jelly Bean you will be facing a 679 MB update file which can only be downloaded using a WiFi network. Either of these two updates will change your smartphone’s software version to D80020k.
AT&T even posted a changelog for the new update that mentions about “updates to Google+ and Google Wallet” without further details. The carrier does mention though that the new Android 4.4.2 update for LG G2 is being rolled out in phases, meaning that it might take a few days until it’s made available for all users.
As usual, when your device is eligible to receive the new firmware you should be able to see a system update message in the notification area. Otherwise, you can also check for the update manually under Settings > General > About phone > Software update > Update now.
If your AT&T LG G2 is still rocking Jelly Bean, you should know that besides the Google+ and Google Wallet updates, the new firmware also brings KitKat-specific goodies like white icons in the status bar, transparent status and nav bars, emoji support, cloud printing, immersive mode, or full screen album art in the lockscrenen, along with improvements to Exchange Active Sync (EAS), SMS & MMS messaging and some more AT&T bloatware (Famigo, ISIS Mobile Wallet, Beats Music).
AT&T begun rolling out the first Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for LG G2 back in February and if you didn’t install it on your smartphone already, you should do it now.
Have you updated your LG G2 to Android 4.4.2? AT&T users, I’m looking at you.
