Android 4.4.1 has begun rolling out to the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, with major improvements to the camera on the Nexus 5.

The Nexus 5 camera has been criticized for being slow to load and focus on scenes, but these issues have been fixed for the most part in Android 4.4.1; the update also adds faster white balancing, reduces shutter lag, and increases the contrast in camera pictures, all of which should go a long way in improving the camera on Google’s latest Nexus flagship.

Android 4.4.1 doesn’t seem to bring much to other Nexus devices except a few interface tweaks, though it’s too early to tell at the moment as it has been only a few hours since the update was released. It’s rolling out over the air, and as usual, it will be a while before it trickles down to all users. Impatient folks can force a check from the Settings » About phone » System update, or wait for the factory images that are expected to be released next week.
