Verizon Droid Maxx, Ultra And Mini Get Android 4.4.4 Update

Motorola has been quick to release software updates for its “Moto” crop of devices but that doesn’t mean it has forgotten about the devices that don’t carry this moniker. It was reported earlier in the week that Motorola and Verizon will push out the Android 4.4.4 update for Droid Maxx, Droid Ultra and the Droid Mini. Sure enough that has happened today. The latest Android update is now available for download on these smartphones.

Some users had actually received the update earlier this week though that was as part and parcel of a soak test. Basically the carrier rolls out the update to select few users to make sure that there are no issues with it or the roll out process.

Android 4.4.4 has already been released for a handful of Nexus devices as well as the Google Play Edition models of certain devices. Motorola’s Moto X is yet to receive it though but it may not be longer before it gets the update as well.

Some of the improvements included in this update fix certain issues and bring some bloatware as well. Motorola Alert Application and updated VZ CLoud and Visual Voicemail applications are bundled in the update which also fixes a Bluetooth connectivity issue and adds the ability to pause video recording with a button on the viewfinder. Camera image quality has also been improved with better consistency of exposure and more realistic flash coloring.

The update is being rolled out in batches so it may take a while before it becomes available across all regions on all three Droid devices.
