Android KitKat 4.4.2 Rolls Out To Google Nexus Owners

Google have begun rolling out Android 4.4.2 to the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 2013 and the Nexus 10 over-the-air. The latest update to the Android KitKat platform comes just days after Google released the Android 4.4.1 for their Nexus range.


The change-log for Android 4.4.2 is identical to Android 4.4.1; promising camera improvements on the Nexus 5, bug fixes, improved stability and better performance. You can also jump straight to Android 4.4.2 from the stock version of Android KitKat, skipping the previous update altogether.

This leads us to believe that Google had identified some instability or problems with the Android 4.4.1 update, fixed the problems and re-packaged the update as Android 4.4.2. Hopefully, they've also thrown in a couple of further optimisations for good measure.


We've had reports from a number of Nexus 7 and Nexus 4 owners who've had issues with their devices since updating to Android KitKat.


Users affected are suffering from poor battery life, WiFi disconnections, Bluetooth issues and more. No news yet on whether Android 4.4.2 has resolved their issues, but we've got our fingers crossed.


You should be able to download Android 4.4.2 over-the-air very soon with the update coming in at 54MB.
