Motorola announced the Android 4.4.2 update had begun rolling out to Moto G users back on December 19th. This came a bit earlier than originally expected, but as we often see — Motorola had this one rolling out in stages. Or in other words, it was an update that wasn’t immediately available for all devices. But as of today it looks like the update is now in full swing.

Our review unit had the good news showing this morning. But in addition, a quick check of the Moto G community on Google+ shows that we are not alone in getting the update. It appears quite a few Moto G users are getting their Kit Kat notification this morning. If you have a Moto G and have yet to see the notification, you may want to head into the settings and perform the necessary check.


As per the review unit we have, the update measures in at 190.9MB and is listed as being 172.44.4.en.US. Motorola gives the option to download over WiFi or a cellular connection and the download and installation process is listed as taking about 10 minutes. In our experience, that is just about what was needed.

When completed your Moto G will be showing Android 4.4.2 with baseband version MSM8626BP_1032.340.63.00R. With that in mind, those still waiting for the update to arrive — you can navigate to Settings -> About phone -> System updates to try and get the process started manually.
