Google rolling out 4.4.2 KitKat update, currently only available to download for Nexus devices


Google is rolling out the Android 4.4.2 update for the Nexus devices. Interestingly, the update comes just days after the search giant came up with the Android 4.4.1 update for the operating system. According to reports, Google started rolling out the updates from today only. The updates will reportedly be available over the air and will reach users within the next few days.

Further, if your tablet or smartphone hasn’t received the Android 4.4.1 update, then don’t worry as it will be updated directly to the 4.4.2 version. It will be bigger in size than what others get though. For those who have the 4.4.1 update, the new version will be small.

As noted by AndroidOS, US-based telecom service provider Sprint, the following changes are being made by Google in the OS.

– Fix for clearing the VM Indicator
– Fix for delivery of the VM Indicator
– Various additional software fixes
– Security enhancements

The updates are currently available only to the Nexus devices, but should come to others soon. The devices currently getting the update include the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 smartphones, both the WiFi and 3G versions of the Nexus 7 (2012) and the Nexus 7 (2013) and the Nexus 10 tablets.
