Aside from the DROID smartphones, Moto E, Moto G, and Moto X users will receive the said update. Currently, the only devices that run with the final version update of the Android Kitkat OS are the Nexus and Google Play Edition devices.

The Android 4.4.4 Kitkat OS will bring improvements in camera and performance as well as the Visual Voicemail. Moreover, the software also offers security-related improvements, and stability fixes.

It was expected that Motorola will be one of the first ones to roll out the Android 4.4.4 Kitkat OS to their devices. Other devices, such as HTC's M7 and M8, will receive the Android 4.4.4 Kitkat OS later this month or in August. Other HTC devices will follow suit in September. Other manufacturers have not revealed yet when they will roll out the new Android software.

Android 4.4.4 Kitkat OS update requires 285 MB of free space. When installing the software, ensure to have enough battery and strong internet connection as well as enough patience to go with it.
