Verizon’s LG G Pad 8.3 LTE model is joining the Galaxy S5 in today’s update party. This update is quite significant though, unlike the bug fixer that was issued to the GS5. The G Pad 8.3 LTE on Big Red is receiving a big jump to Android 4.4.2 from Android 4.2.2. That’s right, Kit Kat is finally here.
The update brings Kit Kat goodies like new white icons in the notification area, immersive mode for viewing images and reading books, cloud print services, multi-user login, and more. In terms of other features, the update includes LG’s Knock Code lock screen security enhancement.
The jump to Android 4.4.2 also squashes bugs like a “cannot connect to server” error, SIM card issues, and muffled sound during multimedia playback.
The full changelog can be found below. To check for the update, head into Settings>About tablet>System update.
