T-Mobile Moto X Update on the Way, What is It?

Motorola is inviting owners of the T-Mobile Moto X to participate in a soak test for a new software update. No other details have been provided to members of the Motorola Feedback Network. Keep in mind that the phone is already running the most current version of Android, which is 4.4.2. So what is it? Your guess is as good as ours.

We did see a Motorola exec tease something for this week, saying that his company has a release that we will “really enjoy,” but that could be app-related rather than firmware-related.

Once this update begins rolling out, we will try to find out what is new.

    i believe it could have a fix for the google cloud print not updating from google play store. from Mark (Forums Manager) on this poast https://forums.motorola.com/posts/dea89f29a0 said that, ”

    What @Nicole_Summers meant was that after the next update on Moto G
    you will be able to update Cloud Print. The app itself will not update
    until then.


    Forums Manager”

    so this could fix this as well for the moto x?

    Rumors point to a new version of Moto Blur

  • Kevin

    Probably an update to free unlimited GPMAA following T-mobile’s uncarrier “sound” announcement. :p

    • Justin W

      They wouldn’t need a firmware update for that.

      i see that u upvoted your own spam comment. shrewd ( /s ).

      • Justin W

        Weird. Disqus always rejects my self-upvotes 🙂

        • Brady


  • Something to do with their Uncarrier 5.0? no carrier bloats… plz…..

    • JoshGroff

      T-Mobile Moto X is carrier unlocked and has no bloat already, so I know that isn’t it.

      • I didn’t know lol I guess I should’ve gone with Moto X instead of Note 3 hahaha

        • Michael Gillenwalters

          You could have gone for 2 Moto X for the price of 1 Note 3.

  • Valdir Gomes

    coming soon too…

    • trd105

      Bur can’t those just be updated in the app? Why would they need a whole firmware update for that? hmmm

      • Justin W

        They wouldn’t. And Buggy Night is already out, so I’m not sure what that guy’s talking about.

  • Joe Coppola

    More than likely just a big bug fixing update

  • Tony Byatt

    VoLTE update?

    • capecodcarl

      I’d rather it be WiFi calling support so I could actually make and receive calls from the basement of the building where I work. AT&T’s LTE service is fantastic down there and I get full bars when I tried AIO, but T-Mobile doesn’t give me any service. If not T-Mobile wifi calling then at least give me Hangouts support for VoIP calling using my Google Voice number like iOS has on iPhones.

      • James

        Yes yes yesssssss +1000

      • michael arazan

        How about both.

        Whatever the update will be I think we all know it will be awesome

  • trwb

    It would be cool if it was multi window. Seriously thinking about getting rid of my Nexus 5 for a multiwindow device.

    • Michael Gillenwalters

      Multitasking window means I have to give up the other half of my pocket. No thanks. I’ll stick with my Nexus.

    • grumpyfuzz

      Doesn’t omnirom have this feature?

      • trwb

        Not yet. They haven’t been able to make multiwindow stable yet.

  • Jeremy Sheehan

    ok Google Now! Set a reminder to flash back stock recovery.

  • Jason B

    Wifi calling support?

  • mikewelch5

    OTA to Moto X+1! Bigger screen and all.

    • blahblahblah

      You’re a special kind of stupid.

      • Brandon Jiang

        i see you don’t understand sarcasm…

      • mikewelch5

        Thanks, pal!

  • anoN

    Maybe a bug fix. I have heard of a lot of issues with the X lately

    • Joe

      Like what or are you just spreading lies ?

      • Anon

        Power cycling, dropped data, etc. I can go on

        • Jason B

          Dropping data is a 4.4.2 issue. Power cycling is probably app related. Many Xs haven’t seen a reboot in months.

          • bigfire

            100% of my power cycle issue have to do with my belly rubbing up against my belt holster that rebooted the phone. I’ve learn not to do that.

        • Mark

          None of that here. I find that many problems people have on any phone are caused by user error.

  • silver_arrow

    Stupid question but it’s not a T-Mobile Moto X it is an unlocked unbranded Moto X that comes with a T-Mobile sim card.

    • lembowski

      Correct, the unlocked Moto X that Motorola identifies as the T-Mobile option. I’m using mine on AT&T.

    • Doesn’t look like a question. 😛

      But yes, technically it’s not a T-Mo Moto X, but Motorola still refers to it that way in emails for software updates and such.

      • silver_arrow

        Well the questions like why do they call it the T-Mobile one instead of the unlocked one….

      • NorCalGuy

        Does the unlocked moto x have WiFi calling on tmo? The nexus 5 doesn’t and their reason is because its not a tmo branded phone ( even the n5 you get directly from tmo). If this did bring WiFi calling that would be good news for the N5. Some old tmo n5 forms mentioned awhile ago the possibility of an app that would enable this for both android and apple as the iphones don’t have the WiFi calling option either

        • jimt

          You can just use skype if you want wifi calling on the Nexus 5 or any phone for that matter. You just have to prepay skype $10.00 and your good for a long time. That is to call a phone number not a computer or phone that has skype, that,s free.

          • capecodcarl

            That’s not a valid solution. T-Mobile’s WiFi calling feature integrates with your phone and your regular T-Mobile account so you keep the same number and are reachable via a WiFi connection in poor coverage areas. If I wanted to hack together a solution I could use any number of SIP providers and pay for separate service, but I shouldn’t have to when T-Mobile already offers this service to other phones sold with carrier branding. Why not just make the service available to any SIP client like SIPdroid and let us login to the service with our T-mobile account credentials regardless of whether we’re logging in from a Galaxy S3, Moto X, desktop computer, Cisco VoIP phone, or even our own Asterisk PBX?

          • NorCalGuy

            I agree with everything except the last bit, we are only paying for a phone service to our cell phone no reason for them to provide VoIP over a computer, or other any thing else extra.

          • arthuruscg

            Because their coverage sucks, and it would be very “uncarrier” like.

          • jimt

            You have a valid point but if you need to call someone when the only signal available is WiFi and there is no Verizon at&t Tmo or sprint or anyone else you can use Skype. That is my point. An app from Tmo would be nice but if need be I can still make a call out at least.

  • fasd


    • blahblahblah

      Not a chance.

      • fasd

        Why? Becuase Google did not send out any OTA to their Nexus devices?

        (I own a Nexus 4 and !0 btw…)

        • blahblahblah

          No, because the SDK for 4.3 isn’t even released yet. Do you know anything at all about Android?

          • peter

            Why did you have to be snarky? If your initial reply to fasd had simply been a friendly, “No, because the SDK for 4.3 isn’t even released yet,” this thread would have been very pleasant to read. Instead you had to be short and condescending.

          • Nexus528

            Agree. No reason to be snarky.

          • fasd

            SDK? They don’t release a whole new SDK for a maintenance release.
            Maybe some new api’s… But that’s about it.

            The only time they release a whole new SDK is when a major release happens.
            (Lollipop at Google I/O will see a SDK update.)

            And yeah, I know about Google and Android. Have been a Google fan for years.

            Oh and by the way…. Android 4.3 has been released…
            4.3= Jelly bean (released summer 2013)
            4.4.x = KitKat

            I’m talking about the KitKat version. 4.4.3.
