Some U.S. Motorola Moto G models are receiving Android 4.4.2 starting today
The update will also bring newly designed status and navigation bars, a full-screen mode, support for color emojis, improved closed captioning, enhanced security, smarter power use and more. The new dialer will allow you to look up contacts directly from the dialing pad or tap frequent contacts to make a call. The update to Android 4.4.2 improves the camera and offers the same enhanced "touch-to-focus" that the Motorola Moto X now features. The update automatically improves the photographs taken with manual settings using the Moto G's rear camera. Improvements will be also found in the gallery.
Motorola said that the Android 4.4.2 update for the Motorola Moto G will soon be available from other carriers and will shortly be rolling out in other regions.

The Moto G is a great deal at $179 off contract and with an upgrade to 4.4.2 it's icing on the cake

Oh, lay off him. He wasn't saying anything out of line. If Mxy DOES say something out of line, then we'll talk.

Please explain to me what I could possibly be "butthurt" about. Anyone who reads any of your posts knows that you're the true king of anal pain.

Hey Mxy look, Motorola updating their phones *shock horror*
Perhaps as a new years resolution you might like to bury your grievances with motorola and accept that they've moved on from the issues you experienced in the past hmm?

Actually it does. With this update to the moto G and the update to the Moto Xand pending release for the droid line up, Motorola will have updated their entire 2013 line up to kitkat in under two months. Other OEM's have not even started updates. (Less HTC Dev edition one) So I say that is proving something.
