[Let's Try This Again] AT&T Pushes Out HTC One M8 Android 4.4.4 Update, Includes Eye Experience And VoLTE

Update: Here's a screenshot, courtesy of an Android Police reader.


As it turns out, the Android 4.4.4 update for the AT&T HTC One M8 that we covered over a week ago never actually rolled out to devices. The company pulled its page down, which suggests that it went up sooner than anticipated. HTC Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi took to Twitter over the weekend to announce that the OTA was actually due out this week, and that it would include both VoLTE support and the HTC Eye Experience software enhancements.

HTC Posts Lollipop Kernel Source For HTC One M8 Developer, Unlocked Editions

Just a couple weeks ago, HTC sent the Sense 6 Lollipop update to owners of the unlocked and developer editions of the One M8. Now, the kernel source for those devices has been posted to the HTCDev website. Remember, this is not the same as the Lollipop kernel source published well over a month ago for Google Play Edition devices; this is for phones running Sense.


For most users, there's nothing to see here.

Google Play Edition phones and tablets started dropping like flies last year, and now we've reached the eventual conclusion. The HTC One M8 GPE is no longer for sale in the Play Store, and it was the last. If you want a new device with stock Android, it's going to be a Nexus.

The HTC One M8 on AT&T is getting an update starting today, and it makes a few significant changes. What it doesn't do is bring Lollipop to the device—it's 4.4.4. The wait for Lollipop shall continue, I'm afraid.

Update, January 7th: the eBay vendor for this listing has added new stock and lowered the price to $349.99. That's a steal for one of last year's best devices. Grab it while you can.

[Update: ZIP Files] The HTC One M7 And M8 Google Play Edition Are Receiving An Android 5.0.1 OTA Update Now

Lollipop is slowly, slowly making its way to all of the Nexus and Google Play Edition devices available (yes, N7 LTE owners, we hear you). If you purchased the "pure," AOSP-packing version of either the HTC One M7 from 2013 or the flagship One M8 earlier this year, you should be getting an over-the-air update to Android 5.0 soon. We're seeing tips from owners of both Google Play Edition phones.

Leaked Screenshots Of Lollipop On The HTC One M8 Show How Sense May Look On Top Of Android 5.0

Our Nexus phones and tablets may have tasted Lollipop now, but we're still waiting for other devices to get to the sweetness of Android 5.0. This update brings the most significant changes we've seen since Ice Cream Sandwich, only much of Google's visual overhaul will disappear behind various manufacturers' custom UIs. That leaves us to wonder just how much of Lollipop folks will get to see on devices such as the HTC One M8.
