Motorola Mobility have begun rolling out the Android 4.4.2 update for the Indian version of the Motorola Moto G Dual SIM (XT 1033).
Since I had already updated to the leaked version, I decided to check whether it is different from the OTA one, but I found no differences in the firmware versions.
So I think that is concrete proof, that the leaked version and the OTA update are the one and the same. I have been using it for 7 days, and find it a lot smoother than Android 4.3 Jellybean which the device shipped with.
Here are a few screenshots from the updated version.
Your phone will automatically notify you when the update is available for downloading, but you can also manually check for an update. To do so, navigate to Settings> About Phone > System Update, and wait for the device to check for the update status.
Once you have updated your device to Android 4.4.2, I recommend that you enable ART (Android Runtime) for smoother performance.
If you haven’t received the update yet, and cannot wait for it, follow the link above for instructions on updating the firmware manually and enabling ART.
Here is a list of changes and features for the updated firmware:
- Android 4.4, KitKat – Enhancements such as restyled status and navigation bars, a new full-screen mode, color emoji support, improved closed captioning support, stronger security, smarter power use, and more tools and capabilities for better app development.
- Phone dialer – Improved phone app with the ability to look up contacts directly from the dial pad, see and tap frequent contacts, and search your corporate directory easily
- Camera – Locked exposure during Panorama capture, additional language support, Manual control of focus and exposure, Bug fixes
- Gallery – New photo editing options including new filter effects, draw on your photos, advanced cropping, and adjustments to color, exposure, contrast and more.

- Hangouts – SMS/MMS support Incorporated a new version of Google Hangouts that supports integrated SMS/MMS messaging. Hangouts can be set as the default SMS app under Settings > Wireless > Default SMS app.
