T-Mobile Moto X now receiving Android 4.4.2 updateAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Earlier this month, we got word that Motorola had begun inviting T-Mobile Moto X owners to take part in a soak test for a new update. Motorola didn't say exactly what changes the update contained, but because the Moto G had recently been bumped to Android 4.4.2, it was speculated that this new T-Mobile Moto X update could be Android 4.4.2 as well. It looks like that guess was spot on, because Motorola today began pushing an Android 4.4.2 update to the T-Mobile variant of its Moto X.
The update weighs in at 146.7MB and is software version 161.44.25. As I mentioned before, there's a bump up to Android 4.4.2 included with this bundle of software goodness. Motorola's official support site says that there are also a few other fixes and tweaks packed into the update:
- Printing documents and pictures: Added support for printing photos, Google Docs, GMail messages, and other content via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and hosted services like Google Cloud Print and HP ePrinters.
- Improved battery life: Fixed bugs which caused a small number of users to experience shorter battery life after upgrading to Android 4.4.
- Fixed email sync delays: Fixed a bug that could cause email services like Microsoft Exchange to experience intermittent delays in data synchronization.
This update may not be quite as big a deal the one from Android 4.3 to Android 4.4, but it still packs in a few nice enhancements. After all, who doesn't love squashing battery life bugs? There's also that bump up to Android 4.4.2 contained within this update, and I'm sure that T-Mobile Moto X owners are pleased to be on the latest and greatest version of Google's mobile operating system.
If you're rocking the unlocked T-Mobile version of the Moto X, be sure to keep an eye out for this update in the coming days. Those of you that don't feel like waiting for the update to be pushed to your device can check for it manually by going into Settings > About phone > System updates > Download. Don't forget to give us a shout once the update arrives on your Moto X!
