Samsung seeds Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900)

Samsung released Android 4.4.2 update for the Snapdragon-powered Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N9005) a few days ago, and now it’s seeding the new update to the Exynos-powered Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900).

The new Android 4.4.2 brings minor UI changes, the most noticeable change being the use of KitKat style white status bar icons instead of the multi-colour icons Samsung has been using in all of its devices until now. The phone has also received a performance boost with the latest update and there is an increase in benchmark scores, as well. Samsung has improved the lock-screen by adding a camera shortcut directly on to the lock-screen for quick access and while playing music the album art now shows up in full screen. Samsung’s keyboard layout has been improved for use in landscape mode, which makes gesture typing easy and much faster. Core Android 4.4.2 changes include: wireless printing, new emojis support, choice between stock messaging app and Hangouts for SMS/MMS, option for changing default launchers under settings, and more.

The software update is being rolled out in phases, so it may not yet be available in your country at the moment but don’t worry it will arrive very soon. If your device is carrier branded then it might take sometime as the update has to get improved by the carrier first and only then Samsung will make it available for your device.

Does anyone else have any problems switching input languages on the stock Samsung keyboard? On my note 3, once I selected the input languages I wanted, I can just swipe the spacebar and it’ll switch between the two. I have both Arabic and English selected on my Note 3 but I can’t switch between the two at all. Swiping the spacebar does nothing and there’s no globe button. The only way I can use the Arabic keyboard is if Arabic is the only input language selected. Then to switch back to English, I’ll have to uncheck Arabic and check English again. If both are selected, there’s I can’t find a way to switch between them. Im not rooted and not running custom rom. . Everything is very official Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
