Just after 16 days of Google releasing KitKat 4.4.3 update, Google has now officially stated that Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 devices will receive KitKat 4.4.4 update. Since this update is released only after a fortnight of previous release, this update doesn’t bring any major changes.
This new update brings security improvements and bug fixes to the existing system. Most of the prominent security bug fix includes a patch to the existing OpenSSL bug. There are many more important security patches that come with this Android 4.4.4 update.
Since this update is going to be released in form of an OTA (Over-The-Air) update, which means that not all the users will be able to download and install this update at the same time. It might be a while before this update is available for your device.
Once an update is ready for your device, you will receive an official update notification in your device’s notification screen. Just tap on this update to download and install the update.
It might happen that even though an update is available for you, it might not appear automatically. Thus, you must check periodically for the update manually, to check for the update manually go to Settings > About phone > System updates > Check now.
You might not want to wait for this update to arrive automatically. In that case, there’s a way to install the update for your device manually. We will update this post when we have captured OTA update files for your device. Currently the KitKat 4.4.4 update is available for the following devices:
- Nexus 4
- Nexus 5 (GSM/LTE)
- Nexus 7 2012 Wi-Fi
- Nexus 7 2012 Mobile
- Nexus 7 2013 Wi-Fi
