    Verizon’s Moto G Receives Android 4.4 KitKat

    Verizons Moto G Receives Android 4.4 KitKatThe Moto G is Motorola’s latest handset, although in this case it is not one of the company’s highest end products. In fact one might consider the device to hover somewhere between low to mid-ranged. That being said it does come with an affordable price tag, making it a pretty value for money buy for those who want an almost-stock version of Android that gets the job done. Now the downside to the Moto G is that it was launched with an older version of Android, Jelly Bean, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but having the latest version is a good thing, right? Well the good news is that for Verizon owners of the Moto G, there have been reports that the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is being pushed out to you as we speak.

    The update will bring your version of the Moto G up to 173.44.20.en.US. For those who have yet to receive the notification informing them that an update is ready to be download, you can attempt to manually pull the update by going to your phone’s Settings, About Phone, System Updates, to see if the update can be downloaded. If it is not there, fret not because updates are typically rolled out in phases and we’re sure it will be your turn eventually.

    Moto G Google Play Edition Launched

    Google has expanded its lineup of devices that offer the “Nexus” experience with the Moto G Google Play Edition. Announced today, the Moto G GPE brings unadulterated Android OS at an affordable price. The smartphone is available for purchase now through the Play Store.

This smartphone is already being sold by retailers, a number of mobile carriers and even Motorola itself.

    The reason why Google Play Edition devices are increasingly becoming popular is because they’re first in line after Nexus devices to receive a new major Android update. Moreover, they give tinkerers more freedom and come pre-installed with stock Android, with no carrier or OEM optimizations to the user interface. This means a much more smoother user experience. With a 4.5 inch HD display and quadcore processor, the Google Play Edition Moto G costs $179 and $199 for 8GB and 16GB flavors, unlocked and compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile. Moto G GPE also features interchangeable backs, allowing users to choose from a variety of colors and types to add a splash of color whenever they want. Best of all, Moto G Google Play Edition comes with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed.

    Moto G Android 4.4 KitKat Update Rolling Out In Additional Markets

    Motorola announced the Moto G smartphone late last year and it was one of the first devices, after Google’s Nexus crop, to receive the brand new Android 4.4 KitKat update. Though at that time the update was only rolled out to Moto G units sold in the U.S. The company said that KitKat would be released for other markets in 2014. January has started and 2014 is finally here, and it appears that Motorola has kept its word. Reports coming in from various countries around the globe indicate that the KitKat international roll out has now begun.

    Moreover, Motorola has posted details about the Android 4.4 KitKat update for Moto G on its official UK website, which confirms that a broader roll out is now under way.
