AT&T Moto X users to get Android 4.4.2 update soon

Earlier this month, Motorola sent out invitations to Motorola Feedback Network members to join the new soak test for Moto X. The soak test was released two days earlier to those who had registered. Finally, just two days after the soak test release, AT&T is rolling out the official update to Moto X users across the country. In this regard, the network has released the change log which includes some bug fixes and new feature additions.

While no users have actually received the final update as of now, the availability of release notes does prove that the update is around the corner. Motorola has a traditional of releasing the change logs just before the actual update, so one can be quite sure that 4.4.2 update would be rolled out at least in the next few days, if not today.

Many of the changes are similar to the update that hit Moto X with other carriers last February. So, after the update, AT&T Moto X will support hosted services like Cloud print and HP ePrinters.  Now that the service is supported, users can print Google Docs, mail, photos and other content directly via Cloud print.

The update also improves battery life on the device. While Moto X never had issues with battery life, after the Android 4.4 update, some users started experiencing shorter battery life than before. According to the change log, this issue is solved.

The delayed sync bug too is fixed in this new version. So, services like Microsoft Exchange should now sync instantly. Also, international roaming bug that caused data connectivity issue for Moto X users roaming outside US is fixed.

Given that the last major update was back in November, AT&T users should be delighted to hear the news. However, the carrier is not the first to release the new Kitkat version. In fact, it is one of the last ones to do so. Other US carriers like T-Mobile and US Cellular had released the update for Moto X last month itself. Given that AT&T’s update brings the same features as the month old update for other carriers, it is actually surprising that the carrier took so long to roll out the new version.

Usually, AT&T users will receive a notification as soon as the update is available. Before updating, there are certain things to keep in mind. For example, it is recommended that the battery is full or at least more than 50 percent. Also, the user should have a stable Wi-Fi network to avoid any potential errors.
