Starting today Google begins to roll out the official Android 4.4 KitKat for the Google Play Edition of HTC One. Keep an eye on your device’s notification panel or go to Software Update menu to check for new OS version updates.
The new KitKat 4.4 OTA Update will arrive today on the first HTC One GE edition phones, but not all of them will get the update at the same time. The roll out gets out in phases and you need to make sure to use a Wi-Fi connection to download and install it.
Some of the new features added by Android 4.4 KitKat for the HTC One Google Play edition are as following: full-screen immersive mode, Ok Google command for enabling Google Now, new open architecture for NFC payments that supports almost any mobile carrier, KitKat now allows applications to control the payment info and save it to cloud or directly on your phone, better and faster multi-tasking, smarter caller IDs that are capable of grabbing data to match an incoming call number that isn’t saved in your contacts. Hangouts app now supports SMS and MMS. There are plenty of other new small things that were added to improve the overall performance of the phone’s UI.
