One of our loyal readers who happens to be a Verizon customer with the HTC One
, has alerted us to the news that the device has started receiving Android 4.3. This really isn't much of a surprise considering that over the weekend, a tweet from HTC's Executive Director of Product Management told us to prepare for the OTA update to start rolling out early this week
Verizon's HTC One is getting updated to Android 4.3
Verizon has posted the changelog which includes faster recharging speeds when using a Mophie Juice Pack, removal of ringing noises on the earpiece, the ability to now play selected ringtones, a correction in the HTC Watch application, and you will now see the correct date with the all-day calendar reminder. Also, conjunctions will be recognized better on the keyboard. Backup Assistant will perform better.
With the update, the VZ Cloud app is now preloaded on the device, and you can now back-up all of your content like photos, texts and call logs so that you can transfer it to a new phone if your current one is lost or stolen. Lastly, you can also add your own music video to your Video Highlights by going to Menu>Select Music.
The update will take 25 to 30 minutes to download and 10 to 20 minutes to install. You should have your battery at least 50% charged and be hooked up to a Wi-Fi connection.
