I was pleasantly surprised by an update notification on my HP Slate 8 Pro letting me know that Android 4.4.2 was now available.
In addition to the normal 4.4 changes, so far the changes I’ve noticed are:
- New boot screen animation
- Updated settings icon
- Apps that required 4.4 or had new versions for 4.4 updated after the OS update (G+, G Drive, Maps, Google Camera)
- From the lock screen you can now launch directly into Google Now
The full version is now:
- Fri Jul 4 19:09:36 CST 2014
- Build number 1.01.02(KOT49H)
Everything is running smooth and fast (maybe a little faster than before). So far no new bugs.
If you haven’t upgraded yet launch Settings, scroll to the bottom, select About Tablet, then System Updates.
