Android™ 4.4.3, KitKat® Rolls Out to Moto Devices This Week

An amazing phone experience is more than just the physical device you hold in your hand. We know that the complete phone experience is about both the software and the hardware. And we believe that your software should continually evolve to get better and better and keep you on the cutting edge.

We are excited to announce some icing on top of the, well, KitKat. Starting today, we are rolling out Android™ 4.4.3, KitKat®, which was just released by Google.

I too ordered one. It took bit of time before it went out of stock. Think FK notified only those who has requested to be notified via the web page. Thankfully the page didn't crashed this time.

Quick question: Which application do you guys use for screen notifications in Android after the screen timeout? In my case the screen doesn't wake up on receiving email or SMS etc. and I need to check for them manually repeatedly.

Thanks for your help

The little flashing LED is enough for me, especially as the colour is configurable.

I doubt it.

4.4.3 is released mainly to fix the many Kitkat bugs.

Oh, it seems to have been removed from play store. I've been restoring via TB for the past few years so didn't realize.

Got a Sense 6 etc upgrade on my htc One. Over 900MB. No signs of 4.4.3 yet! Seems smoother, but all ringtones were replaced by a new set. Now will have to get used to them.

Got the message for update to 4.4.3 on my Nexus 5. Total file size is around 94 mb. Download in progress. Are there any major changes expected? I am not really happy with the battery life of the phone. With moderate usage it ends up in red towards the end of the day. Hopefully with the update the battery might show better performance.

I haven't received it for my Nexus5, should be by end of the week. Let us know if there are any improvements. Everyone has the same issues I guess.

For Motorola phones, the 4.4.3 fixes the root exploit that was discovered some time ago.

Besides the new dialer interface, there are small changes here and there.

Unless you are interested in rooting, it is a nobrainer to take the update ...and the next one.. and...

The main changes I could notice in 4.4.3 are in the dialer which looks pretty cool and refreshingly young now. Waiting to see if there has been any improvement in the battery life.
