Android 4.4 KitKat now rolling out to T-Mobile Moto X

Android 4.4 KitKat now rolling out to T-Mobile Moto X
Two days ago Motorola shocked us by not only beginning the rollout of the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Moto X before the update began rolling out on the Google Nexus 4 (which we're still not sure wasn't a bit planned), but by also getting Verizon on board as the first carrier to push out the update. Now, Motorola has updated their blog post to say that the update is also beginning its rollout to T-Mobile users.

There isn't anything special to say about this, because it seems to include the same updates as were in the Verizon version. Motorola didn't even bother to write a new blog post about it, and instead just added a brief update to the original blog post saying, "KitKat is now rolling out to Moto X users on T-Mobile." So, this means T-Mobile Moto X users should expect the same KitKat enhancements as well as the new camera features mentioned before

We received reports yesterday saying that the AT&T soak test for the Moto X KitKat update has begun, but we can't say when the update will hit that carrier's users. We can say that when it came to Verizon, we didn't hear about the soak test until the day before the update was released, so AT&T users may not have to wait long. 

And, as per Google's own Dan Morrill, there's nothing you can do to make the rollout happen faster, so don't bother mashing the "check for updates" button. Patience is your only way through.

All that's left is Sprint. I bet it'll start rolling out by Monday. Seems that Moto X users have something to be thankful for next Thursday. Ba. Dum. Tish.

A blind man could have seen that one coming from a mile away.
