Motorola has today revealed more about its Android 4.4.4 update for several devices by posting the changelog for the patch that is for the DROID Ultra, DROID MAXX, and the DROID Mini.

If you are not sure, Android 4.4.4 is a tiny update of the KitKat software and is rolling out just mere weeks after Android 4.4.3 arrived. Unlike other large scale updates, this patch is to remove lingering bugs in the 4.4.3 roll out, so if you happened to get 4.4.3 on your particular device you are almost sure to get 4.4.4 eventually.

The file size of Google's update is 2.7MB so if you have a solid connection the download should take seconds, although in the case of Motorola the file could be a little bigger. That's because the company has added some of its own minor improvements to software as well as Google?s own touches. For example, the company has enhanced the quality of its camera software, making the app better in terms of performance while increasing the clarity of images in low light conditions, while also adding realistic flash color.

Motorola has also touched up the video software in the camera app by adding a pause button, while further tweaks away from the camera see Bluetooth connectivity made more stable. The company has also made the Motorola Alert app compatible on the DROID devices in question for the first time. So while Google's Android 4.4.4 update is minimal, it seems Motorola has gone for something a bit more substantial. You should be able to get the update over the air now.
