AT&T Galaxy S5 receives software update that’s not Lollipop

Yesterday Verizon released Android 5.0 Lollipop for its Galaxy S5 users. They’re a pretty lucky bunch given that Big Red is the first major wireless carrier in the United States to release this update for Samsung’s 2014 flagship. AT&T Galaxy S5 users will be getting a software update notification shortly and they shouldn’t get their hopes up, its not Android 5.0 Lollipop. The 487MB update updates the device from Android 4.4.2 to Android 4.4.4, adds a new feature and brings new bloatware for Galaxy S5. AT&T’s voice over LTE or HD Voice is the biggest feature that’s included in this update.

Apart from bringing all of the improvements, bug fixes and security updates included in Android 4.4.4 KitKat this update also brings a handful of bloatware for Galaxy S5 on AT&T. Uber, Remote Support, AT&T Live and ATT Mail applications are included in this latest update.

AT&T is rolling out the update for its Galaxy S5, SM-G900A, over-the-air and it should be live very shortly.
