This week Google released the latest update to its Android operating system, which went from version 4.4.2 to 4.4.3, which indicates that it is a minor update. That said, the list of changes that this update brings is relatively small, at least in relation to changes that users can “see”, as its main focus in this update is to correct minor errors (bugs) and improve the user experience on some specific terminals. This, however, is not to say that KitKat 4.4.3 is not a major upgrade. For a detailed and thorough list of the best changes you can visit this link.
First the spoiled
As is customary, this update has been made immediately available via OTA (Over the Air) to Nexus and GPE (Google Play Edition) devices, which are those that Google develops personally or with the support of the manufacturer. However, Motorola, which was recently a Google company, embraced this strategy of updating its terminals at the same speed as the Nexus, so android 4.4.3 would also be available for Motorola terminals of the Moto range, that is, the Moto X, Moto G and the new Moto E. Therefore, If you are the owner of a Nexus 5 or Nexus 7, or a GPE device or a Motorola from the Moto line, it is possible that this update will come to you these coming weeks. For the rest of the owners of an Android terminal, it only remains to be patient and pray that the manufacturer does the same to update their equipment to this new version.
Minor improvements in KitKat 4.4.3
The dialer or dialer application has a visual change to improve its graphic appearance and prevent the dialed numbers from overlapping the contact list as happened in the previous version. In this version of the dialer, an importance is given to the photos of the contacts, and its design reminds me of the Gmail App and the way it organizes emails.
Among the minor bugs that have been corrected for Kitkat 4.4.3, there are connectivity problems with bluetooth and WIFI that in some terminals suffered temporary locks or disconnections, stability problems with mobile data, which some users reported having, are also corrected random problems. Likewise, other fixed errors (they would have to be tested to see if it is definitive) is related to the battery consumption of some google apps, such as the native camera in Nexus devices that made an excessive use of it. from Google, this update brings performance improvements for Google Launcher and for the native camera App, which improves not only the performance of the application itself, but also the quality of the photos due to the optimization of the processing of the images.
For Motorola devices, this version of Android also brings specific improvements, such as the Moto X Camera app which will also receive image quality improvements as well as that of the Nexus devices. For Moto G and Moto E teams, the camera app will now allow you to pause while recording a video and then resume recording without generating separate files. On the other hand, the Moto Alert App that came with the Moto E ( is an app to send alert or emergency messages to our acquaintances or to the authorities), now it will be available for the Moto G and Moto X.
