After the Moto X got the Android 4.4.2 update, now it’s time for Motorola push the new firmware to the Droid Ultra users. The Motorola Droid Ultra Got updated to Android 4.4 KitKat back in December.

Before the Droid Ultra Android 4.4.2 update is officially issued for everybody, the users will be able to test the new firmware through Motorola Feedback Network – soak test program. The soak test program is conducted to find any potential issues before the Droid Ultra Android 4.4.2 is released for everybody else.

Because most of the KitKat-specific improvements such as transparent status and nav bars, white status bar icons, cloud printing, color emoji support, new Location menu, full album art in the lockscreen, or immersive mode have been patched in the Android 4.4 update, the Droid Ultra Android 4.4.2 update is mainly about camera enhancements and security improvements.

The Droid Ultra users are already receiving email invites to participate in the soak test, which means that the new firmware will be released in the next few days, of course if everything goes as planned.

Once the Android 4.4.2 update for Droid Ultra goes official, you should receive a system update message in the notification area to let you know that your device is eligible for the new software. Tap on it and follow the on-screen instructions. If the system update notification fails to pop up you should also perform a manual check by navigating to Settings > About phone > System updates > Check now.

As usual, Motorola will roll out the Android 4.4.2 update for Droid Ultra in stages, meaning that some of the owners might not be able to download and install the new firmware right away.

Do you happen to own a Droid Ultra? Will you participate in the soak test? Please let us know in comments.

    Have a Droid Mini and apparently it’s not in the soak test. That’s kinda disappointing. :(
