The HTC One Google Play Edition Starts Receiving the Android 4.4 KitKat Update

With the release of the latest version of Android KitKat 4.4 in the global market, users are getting desperate to update their Android devices with the newer version; even we witness a competition among the manufacturers to update their Jelly bean devices with the Android 4.4 KitKat. And Google of course is not way back from the trend and recently (the day before) the Giant has started rolling out the Official Android 4.4 KitKat for the Google Play Edition of HTC One.


If you are the owner of such a device, then you must keep frequently checking the notification panel of your device to get the update notification. In case you have not got it yet, don’t get worried since it’s being delivered in segments and might reach your device at any time. However, if you have no patience to wait further, then you can take a manual search for the update by visiting Settings => About Phone =>Software Updates menu. From there only you can get the latest update notification if there is any for your device. But if you get the update and want to flash it, then make sure that you are connected to a WiFi network to avoid unnecessary use of your mobile data.

It’s of course a shame to say that the Android 4.4 KitKat version comes with numerous new features and improvements. Yet we think it wise to cast a light upon it. The new features of Android KitKat include OK Google Command that enables Google Now, Full-Screen immersive mode, the new NFC Payment mode compatible with almost all mobile Carriers, Auto Controlling of the Payment Info by saving it directly to Cloud or your device, enhanced and superior multi-tasking, Hangouts app supporting SMS or MMS, smart caller IDs that match your contacts with an unsaved incoming number after gathering data from GMap and many more. All other improvisations can be witnessed only after installing the update in your device.

So, are you the owner of an HTC One Google Play Edition device? Do you have updated your device already with the most up-to-date android version? Or still waiting to get the update in the software section of your handset? If done, then do definitely let us know what additional features you mark after installing the update, apart from the ones we have mentioned.
