Android 4.4.4 update starts to roll out

A new Android 4.4.4 update has started to roll out to Nexus devices just weeks after Google introduced the Android 4.4.3 patch.

A minor update to Google’s KitKat foundations, the Android 4.4.4 update focuses on introducing a number of new security patches and has been given a low-key release due to its lack of high-profile new features.

A tiny 2.5MB in size, the Android 4.4.4 patch is available as an over-the-air update.

Currently little is known about the introduction plans for the new Android update, although a number of Nexus 5 owners are reporting they have today received the new patch.

As such, it appears that the Android 4.4.4 update is being focused on Google’s latest own-branded smartphone first.

However, according to AndroidCentral, the Android 4.4.4 update is also being readied for Google’s full list of Nexus devices, including the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and both iterations of the Nexus 7 tablet.

With Google yet to publically discuss the new update, further details are sparse.

We will be sure to keep you updated on the rollout of the Android 4.4.4 update though so stay tuned to TrustedReviews for all the latest.
