The Moto X and Moto G are the first non-Nexus devices to get updated to the recently announced version of Android.


Motorola promised a quick rollout of the Android 4.4.3 update for its devices, and the company is keeping its word by rolling out the update to the Moto X and Moto G less than a week after Google made 4.4.3 official.

Apart from a redesigned dailer app, Android 4.4.3 consists of mostly bug fixes and performance enhancements, but Motorola is throwing in a few of its own improvements into the mix. These include better exposure consistency, flash colors and low-light images on the Moto X camera, an option to pause and resume video recording on both devices, and the Motorola Alert app, which debuted on the Moto E and allows users to send periodic location information to a few designated contacts.

The update has started showing up on the Moto X and Moto G (on the single and dual SIM variants) in a form of an over-the-air package sized at around 170MB. As always, it could take a few weeks for the update to propagate to all devices, though it can be forced to show up manually from the Settings » About phone » System updates menu. That doesn’t always work, but it’s still an option for those that don’t like waiting for days for the notification to show up.
