Remember last week when we learned that the Motorola Droid Ultra would soon begin receiving Android 4.4.4? Well it looks like that’s indeed the case, because both Moto and Verizon have posted changelogs for the Android 4.4.4 update for the Droid Ultra, Maxx and Mini.
The update will bump this Droid trio up to software version 21.11.21 and includes a handful of goodies like camera improvements, ISIS Wallet Mobile and Motorola Alert. Verizon’s full changlog looks like this:

Android 4.4.4 has only been official for around a month, so it’s awesome to see Verizon’s newest Droid devices getting this update, especially after they were promised an Android 4.4.3 update that never materialized.
