HTC has started rolling out the Android 4.4 KitKat update to the HTC One devices in some parts of Europe. The Taiwanese manufacturer had originally pledged to deliver the update within 90 days of KitKat being announced, and today's update makes good on that promise with just a handful of days to spare.
Android 4.4.2 is appearing as an over-the-air update to unlocked HTC One devices in the UK, Poland, Latvia, and most of Nordic region, so other parts of Europe should follow shortly. North American buyers won't see the 308 MB file for a few more weeks because carriers are still in testing with the final version of software submitted by HTC.
The update switches the icons in the notification area to white, fixes some minor bugs and security holes, and improves Bluetooth connectivity. It also adds full-screen immersion mode, printing frameworks, new animations, and some behind the scenes optimizations. HTC One users may also notice that the browser has removed support for Adobe Flash Player.via: Android Central
