Motorola’s been working hard to make Android 4.4 KitKat available to owners of the Moto X, and we just told you about news of a soak test underway at Verizon. While that’s generally a sign that broader distribution of the update is imminent, we weren’t quite expecting to see things move this quickly; Motorola has gone official with news of the update, announcing distribution beginning today for Verizon subscribers.
As per usual, this update is headed out in phases, so while you may not see it on your Verizon Moto X straight away, rest assured that it’s coming. You’re probably quite familiar with what to expect from Android 4.4 by this point, having heard so much about it already, but beyond all those changes, the Moto X will be getting some improvements to call its own, like enhanced Touchless Control.
While this is great news for Verizon users, we wish we had more details on when the rest of you might see updates of your own. Motorola says that “we will have more KitKat for Moto X news to share on other carriers and countries very soon,” but doesn’t present a specific timetable.
