AT&T’s Galaxy S4 to start getting Android 4.4 KitKat tomorrow

While you can’t get your hands on the Galaxy S5 just yet, if you’re using a Galaxy S5 on AT&T, you can take a jump to the next version of Android starting tomorrow. AT&T has revealed that an update to Android 4.4 KitKat will start rolling out to the Galaxy S4 on its network from February 24, bringing all the latest features the OS has to offer to Samsung’s yesteryear flagship, through an over-the-air update that will range in size between 412MB – 842MB.

In case you’re unaware, some of the new features include white status bar icons, faster performance and smoother interface, option to select the default messaging and launcher apps, wireless printing support, a camera shortcut and full-screen album art on the lock screen, new emojis, improved landscape support in Samsung’s keyboard, and, according to AT&T, the ability drag and drop apps for uninstalling (a feature you can find on every third-party launcher app.)

As always, the update will roll out in stages, so don’t be too mad if it doesn’t show up on your device immediately, though you can make a check in the Settings – General – About device – Software updates menu to speed things up. We’ll be sure to let you know when the rollout actually starts, so keep an eye out.

Be careful people. Allegedly, Kit Kat will stop you from installing Apps to your SD Card and prevent Apps from writing to your SD card. Hope Samsung put right this Google wrong as I have a 64gb Samsung SD Card installed! Google had cloud “front-centre” when developing Kit Kat it seems…
