Apparently it's 4.4 day for AT&T – at least for owners of the HTC ONE or the LG G2. While we've been expecting the update to hit the former for a few days now, the latter comes as a surprise.

4.4.2

In AT&T's official blog post, the company outlines what users can expect post-update, including "key enhancements to the user interface, battery efficiency and processing speed." The post goes on to describe some of the visual changes with KitKat's interface, along with other 4.4 goodies. Oh, and LG decided to make Knock On less janky in this build, too. So that's good.

The update is rolling out now, so hit up the About > Software Update menu to grab it.

    VZW STEP UP YOUR GAME

    • RaptorOO7

      Verizon will never step up their game, they will always be last.

      • Matthew Merrick

        Really? Because while I love T-Mobile, Verizon has beat them at nearly every OTA in the past year

        • http://404err0r.com/ Henry Park

          if your on Tmobile you don't get the Tmobile branded stuff you get international devices cuz you pay the same price either way. So better off getting something with less bloat

          • Matthew Merrick

            Yeah that only works for phones that actually have pentaband hspa+ radios, or people who are willing to sacrifice half their service

          • daylon

            False I spent 470 for a brand new note 3 no contract its tmobile and if you're so worried about bloat were then delete it

          • moe

            WiFi calling is only on Tmobile branded phones and I'm not willing to sacrifice that

  • Steve

    Hey Tmobile... Where's my S4 update, assholes.

  • Jooyoung Hong

    Hmm.. makes me wonder what the Android Distribution numbers for Kit Kat in march will look like with all the HTC One, S4, Note 3, and G2s being upgraded to 4.4

  • AndroidUser00110001

    Can someone pull the update from phone? I am not getting the OTA yet...

  • Guest123

    and the optimus g pro sits on 4.1.2 . . . well, at least I don't have to deal with the "new features" of 4.4 that break things.

    • KlausWillSeeYouNow

      AMEN. I don't have AT&T, but my Optimus G Pro on T-Mobile also remains at 4.1.

      I'm getting impatient. Not even a security OTA! (Not that it needs one, but I'm just saying the international device has had NO updates at all.)

  • Terrel Thompson

    bull...this b4 the s4
    f u at@t

    • AllPurposeRadio

      For real!

  • http://androiddissected.com/ Nick Schiwy

    Typo in the title... FYI. Should say 4.4.2 :)

  • Omar Feliciano

    For those that didn't receive the OTA yet, you can call AT&T Customer Service and ask for it they will push it to your phone.

    • Flip Jumpman

      Really? Is this true for the Note 3 on at&t?

      Thanks for the info...

  • Rohan Dhruva

    And yet AT&T has left the Moto X users high and dry.

    • Bojan Gutic

      What? The AT&T Moto X has been updated to KitKat already.

      • Rohan Dhruva

        It's on 4.4, not 4.4.2.

        • Sean Royce

          Oh wow .2 versions behind, I should be so mad.

          • Rohan Dhruva

            The 4.4.2 update has important Exchange fixes. Being on 4.4 prevents me from using my office mail effectively. Guess how mad you are depends on how much it blocks you!

          • Sean Royce

            My mail works fine.

    • motoman

      I know.! Is this Android or ATT fault! Bout ready to go iPhone6 when released this year if someone don't get off their duffs!

  • CHTwenty4

    Fully functional Google Wallet, YES!

    • Ryan Brantley

      That's a BIG negative. Updated and it is still blocked by AT&T.

      • CHTwenty4

        Try again, you need to open the Google wallet app once for it to set up. I have used Tap and Pay twice already . It is working as it should on all 4.4 NFC enabled devices regardless of carrier (in the USA)

        • Ryan Brantley

          I did, for some reason it is unavailable and if you go to settings in the app, under tap and pay it says unavailable. Works fine on my Nexus 5, however that wasn't an ATT device. May try a factory reset and see if that may work.

  • Dark sado

    Got it ;)

  • Anthony Johnson

    Day before yesterday they launch it for my HTC one which I
    already updated and now my brother is also glad to know about the same update
    which is also available on his LG G2 handset.

  • Kemuel Edmond

    What about the Note 3?! This isn't right... There's really no excuse now. Sprint has already pushed 4.4 to the Note 3 AND the S4. I'm pissed...

  • Matthew Rutledge

    I contacted ATT and they claim that 4.4.2 isn't being pushed at all yet. Anyone know what that's about?

    • Cody Leslie

      It definitely is, so the rep you spoke with is full of ****. Don't know what else to say.

      • Matthew Rutledge

        I tried on a few different phones, LG g series, samsung s4, note 3, none of them showed updates, called att, and they said they didn't have an update going out at all.

  • Lirodon

    Just curious, does 4.4 on the G2 at least show the in-app menu buttons for apps that have them, as its supposed to?
