All three of the DROID smartphones that Motorola and Verizon released in 2013 are now launching for the Android 4.4 KitKat update. The first stage of the update is happening for some users now, and Verizon expects to update all DROID Ultra, DROID Maxx, and DROID Mini handsets shortly.
News of the update is a welcome sight to DROID owners as no other non-Nexus or Google Play Edition phone is expected to receive KitKat until next year. Motorola?s speedy update process means buyers can expect to see the same enhancements seen on the Moto X KtKat upgrade, including a new camera, dialer, gallery, Hangouts, NFC hosts, and accessory support.
Verizon also updated is DROID ZAP feature to wirelessly initiate photo and video transfers. The app now has a new interface and faster access from the App drawer.
