You can find a mini-changelog below, but similar to the G Flex and G2 updates, the G Pro will see a restyled status bar for Kit Kat, stronger security, Immersive Mode, improved battery performance, cloud print settings, and even better processing speed. The update should also include NFC  Tap&Pay for mobile payments, lock screen media art, Emoji, and more. 

What’s changing?

  • Restyled status and navigation bars
  • New full-screen mode
  • Stronger security
  • Battery performance improvements
  • Google Cloud Printer support
  • Enhanced processing speed
  • Kit Kat benefits.

To check for the update, head into Settings>About phone>Software update>Update now.
