If you own an AT&T-branded Moto X and registered as a member of the Motorola Feedback Network you should have received an invitation for a new soak test by now. If you chose to accept the invite, you will be prompted to download and install the much-anticipated Android 4.4.2 KitKat update, however, it’s important to bear in mind that this is only a test version of the upgrade, and some issues may occur.
Android 4.4.2 is an incredibly major upgrade from 4.3, which this device ran when it first went on sale back in August, 2013, packing a completely redesigned user interface, SMS message integration in the standard Hangouts application, Google Now on the home screen, Wi-Fi printing capabilities for HP ePrinters, autocomplete for the traditional telephone dialler, Emoji integration, built-in word processing software and lots more.
If you’ve opted into the soak test and have not yet received a push notification prompting you to download and install the update, simply head into ‘Settings’, ‘About Device’, then tap ‘Check for Updates’ to manually scan for it. Alternatively, you could always plug your smartphone into your computer and download the update via the official Motorola Desktop Client.
