Verizon Moto G Android 4.4 KitKat update now rolling out

Verizon’s version of the Moto X getting Android 4.4 KitKat first was an exception. The carrier sometimes nicknamed Big Red is usually the last to roll out software updates for its smartphones, and that has once again happened in the case of the Moto G.

Motorola’s budget offering is incredibly cheap at Verizon, going for just $99.99 sans contract, but it launched running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Now though, the update to Android 4.4 KitKat has finally started rolling out for units bought at Verizon, bringing them in line with all the other Moto Gs sold across the world. The KitKat update first started making its way to the Moto G in December, and last month it started to arrive in more and more countries.


If you own a Moto G and got it from Verizon, it should be notifying you that an update is available any day now. If, however, you’re impatient and feel that you can’t wait for that to happen, you could try manually checking for the update by going to Settings > About phone. Who knows, maybe you’ll be lucky.

After applying the update you’ll be running Android 4.4.2. The estimated installation time is around ten minutes.
