Yesterday, Google released all the factory images for Nexus devices for the latest version of Android, 4.4.3. A surprising amount of Nexus devices received support from the get go, which is awesome. But it looks like support is going beyond Nexus devices, as people are reporting getting the over-the-air update on the HTC One (M7) and Galaxy S4 Google Play edition devices.
Though these updates are not completely reliant on Google, it looks like both HTC and Samsung worked very hard to push this update out as fast as possible. Only a day has passed, meaning that these Google Play edition devices don’t lag behind. HTC has even published the source code for both the M7 and M8 GPe devices.
We’re happy to see Google Play edition devices being supported well, especially older ones like this. Though Android 4.4.3 isn’t a very big update, it’s still nice to have. Hopefully the rest of the GPe devices will get the update as well. If you own a GPe device, tell us when you receive your 4.4.3 update in the comments!
