Motorola Moto G updated to Android 4.4.2 in Europe
Owners of the Motorola Moto G in the U.K. and Germany, are now receiving the Android 4.4.2 update. That means that owners of the phone in those two countries will be rockin' the latest build of Android. According to the change list from Motorola, the newest version of Android includes restyled status and navigation bars, a full-screen mode, color support for emojis, improved support for closed captioning, smarter power use, and for developers there are new and better tools for building apps.

Improvements to the dialer mean that users can now look up contacts directly from the dialer application, and the new gallery on the phone allows you to "draw" on your pictures. It also offers advanced cropping techniques as well as allowing you to adjust color, exposure, contrast and more. After the update, you will be able to print pictures, documents, Gmail and more using Google Cloud Print and HP ePrinters. And lastly, the update brings a new version of Hangouts that includes integrated SMS/MMS messaging. To make it your default SMS/MMS application, go to Settings > Wireless > Default SMS app.

The update is 174MB and Motorola suggests that you download it over a Wi-Fi connection in order to save your precious data. In addition, the Google owned company says that your battery should be at least 50% charged.
