Don’t get your hopes up just yet — it’s not the big one. But Verizon LG G3 owners should know that an incoming software upgrade is being pushed out, and its biggest addition is a set of preparations for Android Calling 1.0.
Advanced Calling is what Verizon calls their voice-over LTE implementation which will allow you to place calls over Big Red’s 4G LTE network for clearer and more reliable end-to-end audio. Advanced Calling is also going to incorporate video calls that are charged to your plan’s calling minutes instead of sucking up your data allowance. Neato!
Beyond that, a handful of Verizon and LG apps have been updated to the latest versions, though the changes likely amount to little more than bug fixes and performance enhancements. Verizon did mention one specific issue being addressed, that being an issue with the built-in email client continuously refreshing and showing “updating” when switching between folders. Beyond all that, though, there isn’t much of a plate to eat off of here.
Those waiting for Lollipop will have to wait a little longer, though we know LG has the upgrade going out to handsets in other parts of the world and it’s only a matter of time before it finds its way to the Verizon faithful. Stay on the lookout for this one as the weeks move on.
