Android 4.4.2 now here for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play edition

Android 4.4.2 now here for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play edition
Late Friday, we told you about the Android 4.4.2 update being sent out to the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play edition, and the HTC One Google Play edition. We told those with the Samsung Galaxy S4 GPe to check for the update since it would make sense for it to arrive at the same time that the other devices received their update. Android 4.4.2 brings some necessary bug fixes, and also removes App Ops from the OS. The latter allowed Android users to control which data a third party app can have access to and Google said it had been mistakenly part of the OS since Android 4.3.

So if you own the GT-i9505G, you should have received software version KOT49H.S0001.131204 via an OTA update. This is exactly why you made that tough decision to blow off TouchWiz, so you can be ahead of all of your friends and family and sport the latest Android build ahead of everyone.

The Android 4.4.2 update weighs in at 57.4MB, and if you own the Samsung Galaxy S4 GPe, keep an eye out for the notification that the update is ready to be downloaded and installed on your phone. If you don't feel like waiting for the update to hit your phone, click on the XDA sourcelink below to manually yank out the update directly from Google's servers.
