T-Mo Moto X gets 4.4.3 KitKat update


If you’re one of the few T-Mo users rocking a Moto X, you’ll be glad to know the latest version of Android – version 4.4.3 – has landed. If you haven’t received a notification to download in the past 24 hours, you should check your settings for software updates manually, and it’ll more than likely be there. News of the update comes just one week after Motorola announced a ‘soak test’ for pre-release testing.

Here’s the full change log:

  • Android™ 4.4.3, KitKat®: Android 4.4.3, KitKat, is the latest release of the Android platform. This release includes several stability, framework and security fixes in addition to accuracy improvements to the power profile.
  • Camera – Improved image quality: Improved camera image quality including better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash coloring, improved photos in low light conditions using front camera.
  • Camera – Pause video recording: Added the ability to pause video recording with a convenient pause/resume button on the viewfinder.
  • Updated Phone dialer: Updated Phone dialer with a new graphical layout and colors to improve consistency and usability.
  • Enables Motorola Alert Application download: New Motorola Alert application sends periodic alerts with your location to your selected contacts. Now available for download from the Google Play Store.

Let us know if you download it successfully, and – of course – if you’re enjoying the the update.

    What about the Moto G? Will that be receiving 4.4.3 in the near future?

    • Marc

      Yes. My wife already had the update pop up on her Moto G yesterday morning.

  • Michael Johnson

    There seems to he a bug in the update that causes attempts to send an SMS to fail. I’ve confirmed that it’s a system issue, as I’ve tried several different SMS apps and the same exact issue occurs on my phone, my wife’s phone, and our families’ phones after updating.

      I had the same problem. Re-enabling app defauts fixed the problem on my moto x, my dads moto x, and my moms moto g. Seems like the built in messaging app has to be enabled now :P

      I had the same issue, but unlike an earlier poster I wasn’t able to reenable the stock messaging app. Factory wipe and a fresh install fixed everything.

    I’m surprised there isn’t VoLTE support added in this update. What gives?

    • Zexel

      T-mobile is only allowing the Note 3, LG Flex and Galaxy Light use it for now, they don’t want the VoLTE network to become flooded.

      • Andrew S.

        I don’t think the 3 people with the Moto X on T-Mobile would ‘flood’ their VoLTE network. I honestly don’t think that’s the reason for limiting it to those 3 devices. Its more likely because they’ve only done testing on those devices.

          Hey, I’ve got 2 so that’s at least 5. Maddening that TMO doesn’t sell it directly but even if they did I guess it wouldn’t have been the unlocked and customizable one anyway, which is half the attraction. It is a great phone, especially for the money.

        • Andrew S.

          I own one and think its a potty T-Mobile doesn’t market it.

  • steveb944

    You failed to include the Moto G, it also has the update. Moto E as well.

  • randian

    It seems to work so far, though it did not fix my issues with the mail client.

  • zx6guy

    Hate the new dialer otherwise no issues.

    • randian

      That new dialer looks like it was stolen from Windows Phone. Ugh.

  • Dakota

    my nexus 5 (bought from google play) still hasn’t received an update
