Nexus devices receiving update to 4.4.2


Google had started releasing Android 4.4.1 last week to the Nexus 5 but it seems there was a voicemail issue that was found so they’ve quickly rectified the issue & are presently pushing 4.4.2. Reports claim the update is being pushed to all Nexus devices that recieved Android 4.4 officially so if you haven’t received it yet go into your Settings Menu – About Phone – System Updates – Then tap the Check Now Icon to see if the update has been pushed to you yet.
If you never recieved Android 4.4.1 don’t worry you’ll go straight to 4.4.2.

The update from 4.4 to 4.4.2 will bring Camera improvements you can see listed in the screen shot above as well as now having the ability to Zoom in HDR+ mode which is a great improvement in our eyes. Also we have noticed that the slight static that could be heard when volume was at its lowest but not off has been reduced greatly. Volume seems to have received a boost as certain notification sounds that were hard to hear seem loud & crisp now.

Have you noticed any other improvements in the 4.4.2 or 4.4.1 update? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. Hey Paul, just wanted to ask how long did it take for you to receive the notice of a new update as I have yet to see it and have been spamming the check now button since the rollout was announced.

    • The update only to 1% of users at first then slowly ramps it self up to higher and higher percentages of users over time to catch any issues before the mass of users get the update. This is what happened with 4.4.1 is it started rolling to the 1-10% users and then was stopped due to a voicemail bug that was caught then fixed & now they’re starting at that 1-10% of users again pushing out 4.2.2 & will ramp up users for the next 2 weeks if no issues become evident. So it can take up to 2 from yesterday to recieve the update you just have to keep checking like you are, I didn’t receive 4.4.1 before it was halted but 4.2.2 just started being pushed yesterday and I recieved it yesterday so it’s just a luck if the draw in when your device ID gets the green light from Google for the OTA update to be pushed to your device. So like I said it could take up to 2 weeks but I’ve usually got it in the first few days.
