By now, we’re sure you’re more than aware of the new features found in the latest version of the Android OS, but take a look a few of the Moto X-specific updates you can look forward to with KitKat below!
- Moto X specific updates
- Camera Focus and exposure
- Enhanced the “touch to focus” option with a new circular, on screen control that can be dragged by your finger around the viewfinder to adjust a photo’s focus and exposure.
- Added new photo editing options to the Gallery app including new filter effects, draw on your photos, advanced cropping, and adjustments to color, exposure, contrast and more.
- Touchless Control
- Added a new “Find my phone” command to Touchless Control. Just say “OK, Google Now-find my phone” and your Moto X will ring loudly to let you know where it’s hiding when you’ve misplaced it nearby.
- Accessibility – Add improvements for the visually impaired to all screens in AOV for TalkBack.
- End of Speech improvements
- Motorola Connect
- Improved number formatting
- Performance, connectivity, and logout management improvements
- Active Display
- Picking up the Moto X will wake it up to display the Active display
- Motorola Migrate
- Improved interface for switching between send to and send from modes
- Upgrade notifications
If you have yet to see the notification that an update is waiting for your Moto X, you can manually check by going to Settings> About Phone> System updates. If the update is waiting for you, follow the prompts and it will download. Be sure you’re on WiFi as well, given that this is a 326.5MB file.
Now we’re waiting for the Sprint Moto X to get its Android 4.4 KitKat update, which we couldn’t imagine will take too long at this point.
