Android KitKat 4.4.4: Update for AT&T, Sprint Moto X Rolling Out Now

AT&T and Sprint are rolling out the Android 4.4.4 KitKat for the Moto X now.

Android Origin and Android Police noted that a number of AT&T and Sprint Moto X users were getting the latest Android update via a soak test on Friday, August 15.

Typically, mobile phone carriers in the United States release the latest Android update in a “soak test” to a number of users to see if there are any outstanding issues and complaints.

The mass roll out will be carried out if the soak test users do not report any major problems with the update.

Motorola has confirmed that they were indeed rolling out the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update for AT&T, but have yet to announce that they are rolling out the update for Sprint. 

Given that Sprint only just released its Android 4.4.4 KitKat update for soak testing, the mass roll out could be on its way in a couple of days.

Indeed, Motorola writes that ACG, US Cellular, and Sprint’s Android 4.4.4 KitKat update is “Coming Soon.”
