Friday Poll: What’s Your Favorite New Feature in Android 4.4 “Kit Kat”


Kit Kat brings a ton of new features for both developers and end users. It could easily be one of single biggest list of changes made to the Android OS since Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich, and we want to know which feature has you most excited. The entire system has received sort of a facelift, with newly transparent on-screen buttons and navigation bar, and plenty of other features like the updated Google Experience Launcher, an updated smart dialer app, SMS/MMS integration into Hangouts, and a whole lot more.

If it’s something that isn’t listed, let us know down below in the comments section.

    This poll is hilarious, “Integration of SMS and MMS into Google Hangouts” isn’t even part of 4.4, it is part of the Hangouts update. “Emoji’s Everywhere” is essentially a keyboard update.
    Faster Multitasking, Performance Tweaks makes sense, fullscreen artwork, immersive mode, IR support, UI, Dialer and Something Else all make sense for the poll. I’ll include the GEL as well, since it is not available on the Play store.

    I may get some flak for this, but on the Note 3 I ran the 4.4 launcher all weekend and went back to touchwiz.

    the KK launcher just seems bare and “stripped down” not even scrolling folders and a limit on how many icons i can stash in em?


    I do love the left swipe to now and open mic to “ok Google now” those features DO rock.. I hope to see s-voice wake-up from sleep to open google now.

  • I do not like the 4.4, but to answer your question, to me, perhaps my favorite version of this in a simple interface, crisp and not showy

    Integration of sms and hangout is not a kitkat feature but more of a Google hangout feature

      I placed my order by 11:15a PST on Fri. and got my email/shipping yesterday, Nov 1, 6p PST. It works better for me to get later, so I took regular ground, it says by Thurs next week but I suspect it’ll maybe be Wed, so I’ll be ready, Godspeed truck driver! đŸ™‚

    There’s a new religion in town born by the blood of the digital age and created by the lords of information. Behold the Droid.

    They are all great of course. I like everything I invented.

  • Performance tweaks by far.

  • ICU

    I like the new and improved NSA monitor feature.

  • roiji

    Something else — compatibility with more devices. RAM requirement is at 512MB.
