Moto G Android 4.4.4 Update Now Being Pushed to Verizon Users

Verizon Moto G

If you happen to own the Verizon Moto G, then you should keep an eye on the notifications bar as Big Red revealed they are now rolling out the Moto G Android 4.4.4 OTA update.

As usual, the Moto G Android 4.4.4 update is being rolled out in stages, which means that some of you might not be able to download and install it right away. Once your Motorola Moto G becomes eligible to receive the new firmware update, you should be able to see a system update message in the notification bar. Tap on it, choose download, then select install after the download is completed.

In case the system update notification failed to show up, you would also want to check for the Android 4.4.4 OTA update manually under Settings > About phone > System updates > Check now.

Because all the KitKat specific goodies such as transparent status and nav bars, white status bar icons, immersive mode, cloud printing, new Location menu, full screen album and movie art in the lock screen, or color emoji support were patched in the previous Moto G KitKat updates, the new Android 4.4.4 update only arrives with minor changes. According to the official changelog, the new software arrives with improved camera picture quality, ability to pause video recordings, and usability improvements to phone dialer.

Since Moto G has skipped Android 4.4.3 and got updated straight to Android 4.4.4, the new firmware update also integrates the new Phone Dialer with card-based interface and redesigned color scheme for the dialer itself, along with the slightly revised People app.
