Google updated its Edu Device Setup app this afternoon with a changelog that mentions Android 4.4.3. As you probably recall from yesterday, Sprint told us to expect an update on the Nexus 5 to Android 4.4.3 at any time, though the update has yet to surface on a device in the wild.
This changelog doesn’t give us much else in the way of when we can expect the update or what will be included in it, but I think it’s safe to assume that it should be here any day. If both Google and Sprint think the update is ready, I’d be surprised if we don’t have a download link for you very shortly. (more…)
AT&T continued its rollout of Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) updates to its line of Samsung Galaxy devices this morning, adding the Galaxy S4 Active to the list, while Verizon can’t seem to update any of its. AT&T has already updated the Note 3 and Galaxy S4, but had yet to show love to its Active variant until now. Well, their support pages show that it may have received it back in May, though today is apparently the start of the mass rollout.
As far as the update goes, we’re looking at a bump up to Android 4.4.2, with better lock screen controls, better handling of SMS, a restyled notification bar, new location controls, and more. (more…)
According to Sprint’s support page for the Nexus 5, the Google flagship is due to receive an update today. The changelog for the update only mentions that it enables “Sprint Spark band 26 and band 41″ and includes “misc Android updates.” That’s it.
Is it Android 4.4.3? Could be. Until we see it push to devices or a mention of its existence from Google, we’ll continue to keep one eye-brow raised.
Let us know if you see anything. (more…)
