Verizon Moto X rear

Following rollouts on AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and U.S. Cellular, it looks like Verizon's version of the Moto X will soon be receiving a heaping helping of new software. Motorola has started to send out a soak test update to Verizon Moto X owners that are a part of the Motorola Feedback Network and has also shared the official changelog for it. According to Android Central, here's what you Verizon Moto X owners can expect if this update gets approved as is:

  • Camera – Improved Photo Quality: Improved capture of natural light (auto-white balance) and color accuracy for more precise exposure in outdoor and backlit scenes
  • Camera – Improved Focus: Faster touch to focus time and reduced unnecessary refocusing in low light conditions and scenes with continuous motion
  • Camera – Faster Switching: Shortened the time it takes to switch between rear and front-facing cameras, as well as transition between the viewfinder and the Gallery app
  • Enhanced Touchless Control — Increased accuracy and responsiveness when using Touchless Control, and added easier training of the “OK Google Now” trigger
  • Improved Motorola Migrate Experience — Improved transfer of content from an old Android phone to a new Motorola phone
  • Google Drive – 50GB Promotion: Added a promotion expiration date - customers have 30 days from phone activation or installation of this update to redeem the 50GB offer
  • Calling – Improved Voice Quality: Fixed an issue that could sometimes result in choppy audio being heard by the person you’re talking with on your Moto X
  • Moto Care – Lost Device Finder: Fixed an issue that could sometimes prevent a lost phone from reporting its location to the Moto Care Lost Device Finder service
  • Motorola Assist – Driving Detection: Fixed an issue that could sometimes cause the phone to read out text messages and announce calls when not in Drive mode

There's no word yet on exactly when this version 139.15.1 update will begin rolling out to John Q. Verizon Moto X owner. As I mentioned before, though, the soak test got underway this morning, so the public push may not be too far off so long as there are no last-minute issues that crop up during testing. Stay tuned and I'll give you a shout once we hear more. Until then, you Moto X owners on other carriers can swing by the comments below and tell us how this camera-improving update has been treating you.
