Moto G now receiving Android 4.4.3 update with Motorola Alert in tow

moto g generic 2 Screen Shot 2014-05-13 at 5.03.52 AM

Motorola continues to be fantastic with providing timely updates: the next device to get the latest version of Android is the Moto G. Specifically, Moto G devices purchased in the US or Brazil. The update to Android 4.4.3 brings performance fixes, updated Phone and People apps and probably more (it’s not perfectly clear what 4.4.3 brings).

With Android 4.4.3, Motorola has also included the Motorola Alert app. This app will be useful in case of emergencies, allowing you to send loved ones notifications and keep track of them in case of emergencies. It’s especially useful for children. This same app will be available on the Moto X when it gets Android 4.4.3.

Motorola has been very speedy about pushing out updates for its devices. Good on Motorola for taking on a significant issue that has plagued Android manufacturers for years and defeating it in the process. If you own a Moto G, head to the settings and check for updates. And tell us if you get it!

    The updates are not country specific. As a user, you have a random chance of getting the update rolled out to you. The link below will explain

    “As Dan Morrill explains here, updates roll out in batches, starting with 1 percent of all devices in the first 24-48 hours. The team checks for problems, and if everything goes to plan, proceeds to update the next batch, typically consisting of 25 percent of devices. So the percentage of updated devices goes from 1%, to 25%, to 50%, to 75%, to 100% over a period of 1-2 weeks.

    And here’s the thing — the devices that go into each batch are randomly selected once for each batch.”

    If you frequently use Mototola Alert ‘Follow me’ or ‘Meet me’ feature, You can automatically get the track plotted on the map (even when offline ) by using ZTrack-free on the receiver Phone.

    If you frequently use Mototola Alert ‘Follow me’ or ‘Meet me’ feature, You can automatically get the track plotted on the map (even when offline ) by using ZTrack-free on the receiver Phone.
