Galaxy Note 3 users on T-Mobile receive KitKat update, see all the changes detailed by Samsung

According to reports from Samsung Galaxy Note 3 owners on T-Mobile, their phablets have begun receiving an update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Weighing in at a hefty 495MB, the update will bring features from the latest Android version to Note 3 users, in addition to tweaks and various changes.


For starters, Galaxy Gear owners will have to update Gear Manager to version 1.6 to make it compatible with their Note 3. Music album art will be displayed on the lock-screen. Location services are integrated in a new location menu. Wireless printing support is added. New Emoji icons are available, and the option to switch between Messages and Hangouts as your default messaging app is now included.


That's just the tip of the iceberg. For the most curious of you, Samsung's official Customer Consultant Guide for the Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4.2 update details all the changes that are in tow. Most of them aren't immediately obvious, but with this guide in hand, we believe you'll have a lot of fun discovering them for yourself.

I've been trying for days checking for updates, and then today I finally don't check while I'm still home, get to work and check and get the message "Download failed. Wi-Fi network disconnected. This software update is not available via mobile networks." This day will now seem like the longest day in history.
