After Motorola Moto X received Android 4.4.2, it is time for Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx to receive the update.
Mototola has sent emails to its users and declared that the latest software update is in the final stages and preparing for the release.
Some users of the two Droid devices are being requested to engage to a soak test of the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to discover how the system performs under sustained use before the update is distributed official.
In this way, Motorola can make sure that everything runs as expected. If there are certain problems that require the update to be stopped, it will influence only a small number of devices. After the test is performed, Android 4.4.2 will start to go out for all the Motorola Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx handsets.
Most of the Android 4.4.2 KitKat specific enhancements such as white status bar icons, transparent status and navigation bars, color emoji support, new Location menu, cloud printing, or immersive mode and full album art in the lockscreen have been covered in the Android 4.4 update received late last year, the Droid Ultra KitKat update is mostly about camera enrichments and security improvements.
When the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Motorola Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx goes official, you should receive a message in the notifications informing you about a system update. You just need to tap on it and follow the on-screen guidances. You can also check manually by going to Settings -> About phone -> System updates -> Check now.
If you own one of these two Motorola Droid devices tell us your expectations from the update and if you will participate in the soak test program.
