Google recently revealed the first preview of Android L 5.0 in its Google I/O 2014, a couple of days back. But before that update arrives, Google also released a minor KitKat 4.4.4 update, barely a month after KitKat 4.4.3 rolled out.
The Android KitKat 4.4.4 update consists of some important security fixes with OpenSSL bug fix being prominent among them. Sony Xperia Z Ultra KitKat 4.4.4 update firmware build 14.4.A.108 was released on the same day as for Sony Xperia Z1 and a day after the same update was released for Sony Xperia Z1 Compact.
According to the official Sony’s webpage for Xperia Z Ultra, this update brought various bug fixes, enhancements and improvements. Some of these key changes are:-
- Latest enhancement and security patches and fixes from Google.
- New and improved Camera app, for a better experience.
- Improvement fixes for Contacts, Google+, Google voice and Music streaming
- Updated Sony apps
Though the official website doesn’t provide the information as in which regions the update will first be rolled out but it might be possible that this update will initially be released in same regions as that of Xperia Z1 Compact (Italy, Indonesia and Russia). Other regions will soon receive this update.
As always the update will be released in form of an OTA (Over-The-Air) update which means that even the users who live in the regions when the update was released, will have to wait for a while for the update to arrive automatically on their devices.
You can always check if an update is available for your device by going to Settings > About phone > Software updates > System updates.
Once you receive a notification that your device is ready to download this update, just tap on the notification and follow the onscreen prompts to download and install the update.
