Samsung has started to officially roll out the OTA Update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat for the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Wi-FI T310 tablet.
Almost an year after the original release of Galaxy Tab 3 with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean we are also receiving the latest build of Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware. Check your device's notification panel and see if there is any new Android OTA Update alert.
At the moment the update has been released only in France, but all the other regions of the world should get Android 4.4.2 KitKat in the next few days.
By updating to Android 4.4.2 KitKat you will help your Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Wi-Fi tablet make a huge jump from Jelly Bean 4.2.2 as you will get better performance, new white status bar icons, tweaked notifications menu, full-screen immersive mode for numerous applications, wireless printing support, better battery life, better multi-tasking support for hundreds of Android apps, better video playing support, new lock screen features like camera shortcut, and more.
The build number of this Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Wi-Fi Android 4.4.2 KK update is set to T310XXUBNE9 with the build date set to May 31st. If the update notification hasn't been pushed to your device just yet, then you can start checking yourself for it by going to Settings> About tablet> Software Updates section. Press the 'Check now' button and if there is any new updating file available for download, then you simply need to confirm the process and your Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 device will take care of the rest of the process.
The Android 4.4.2 KitKat Update will be pushed only for Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 WiFi devices that are running on stock Android 4.2.2 firmware. If you've installed a custom ROM on your tablet, then you might want to use a manual update guide.
