Google Play edition HTC One now getting Android 4.4 KitKat OTA
HTC's ambition to get its North American fans rolling on Android 4.4 KitKat a.s.a.p. is still a work in progress, but the Google Play edition of the company's One flagship is altogether skipping the queue. And deservedly so.

Google Play edition HTC One owners have started receiving the new 300MB KitKat update over-the-air according to multiple sources, proving that investing into the stock Android experience has its perks. It's worth pointing out that, much alike other devices that have already made the jump to KitKat, the update doesn't bring the all-new Google Experience Launcher, meaning that no dedicated page has been ordained for Google Now.

In case you're a little dim on the details, a Google Play edition smartphone is a fairly new term, which simply signifies the fact that a certain flagship (for now) is being sold directly by Google, unlocked and contract-free. Perhaps more importantly, however -- these devices come running completely stock Android, just the way Google intended it.
