Verizon Begins Android 4.4 KitKat Update for DROID Ultra, Maxx and Mini

Verizon's DROID Ultra and DROID Mini now available in white

The Moto X recently got its Android 4.4 KitKat update for devices on Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T. Now Verizon’s Motorola DROID line of phones are finally getting theirs. Verizon let the cat out of the bag today, announcing the rollout of  the Android 4.4 KitKat update to its DROID beginning today, releasing in phases.

Verizon announced the update with a tweet:

With this update, the newest DROID smartphones will be updated from Android 4.2.2 to Android 4.4, with the Android 4.3 update skipping Verizon’s DROID devices altogether. According to Verizon, the update brings KitKat goodies like immersive mode, camera improvements, and cloud-print support as well as other changes like FitBit support, updated Verizon apps, DROID Zap 2.0, and more.

The updates are rolling out in phases, so look for the update to hit your DROID Ultra, Mini or Maxx within the coming week or so. You’ll be notified when the update is all ready to roll, but anxious DROID owners can always check for the update manually by going to Settings, About phone and hitting the Software update button.

Verizon’s DROID line of Motorola phones have been getting a lot of holiday cheer lately. It was recently announced that the DROID Mini and DROID Ultra will be available in white – pure as the driven snow!
