Motorola starts rolling out Android 4.4.4 for Moto X, E and G in India


Motorola has announced via Twitter that it has started rolling out Android 4.4.4 update for the Moto X, Moto G and Moto E smartphones in the Indian market.

The update is being released in phases, so not everyone will get the update right-away but it should reach your Motorola phone in the coming days. As soon as the update is available for your phone, you will get a notification, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update.

You can also manually check for the update by going to Settings > About Phone < Software update.

As Motorola did not roll-out Android 4.4.3 for any of the phones in India, the latest update will skip Android 4.4.3 and will directly take the Moto X, E and G to Android 4.4.4. The update size is said to be between 50-75MB depending on whether it is Moto E, G or X.

According to Motorola, the update will include several stability, framework and security fixes as well as new phone dialler and OpenSSL-related fixes.

If you have already updated your Motorola smartphone, do let us know about the experience in comments.

    1. @Sid … Did you get the update … Which part of india are you from ?, Im from Bangalore and has not received any update yet … :/

      1. The original 4.4.4 will be rolling after some time.They are just testing the update via soak test and asking people for their feedbacks.

    2. Ya which part of the country? I’m from Telangana state,Hyderabad. I didn’t get any update.

      1. aahaaa don’t be jackass, Ohh i got the point,, u have installed cm11 rom which is 4.4.4 based not any official update…RIGHt

      2. Am also from Telangana.. But i got the update on 2nd July night only… I bought my MOTO E on the first day of its availability in Flipkart. Early devices may get updates early…

      3. I am also residing in Hyderabad and purchased Moto E on the lauch day itself.But still no update.

      4. Updates have nothing to do with when you bought the phone! It’s rolled out in batches so as to avoid high traffic on their servers. Even if you were the first to get the phone, you might be the last to get the update. But don’t worry, you’ll get it within the week. Cheers!

    3. If you have really got the update, share the screenshot with us which shows the version as 4.4.4 and also shows the device to have been bought in asia through retail.

  1. FINALLYYY.. Checking every 10 minutes on my Moto X. Nothing yet 🙁
    Gs n Es, what’s your scene?

      1. just like OTA updates, this is a step by step rollout. takes time to reach all the mobiles. may take from a few hours to days.

  2. Its always rolled out in batches. So lets wait and see. I still did not get it on my moto E and G

  3. Update may not be region specific. It will be released in batches for the entire week. please have patience. The entire process of rolling out updates will take time

  4. Come on Guys! Motorola just said they have ‘ began rolling out the update ‘. Obviously it will take few days to reach everyone in all parts of the country, so have patience. Jeez…

  5. Where can we put up the bugs identified in android versions to get the bugs fixed in next releases??

    1. Motorola forum!Just google it and register your self to the forum there you will get many good things.

      1. But Motorola clearly stated that this update is for Indian variant.So it doesn’t include the single sim variant bought from outside. They will get this update only
        when Motorola rolls it out in US

  6. Please let us know if anybody got the update and please! those single sim fellows …don’t act smart and say that I got it weeks before….

    1. That phone is a moto e ..
      Not moto g
      Check the resolution of the screenshot and you will find it to be 540 * 960 .. that’s moto e’s screen. Moto g screenshot is of 1280*720 resolution

      1. I am using moto e. The dailer and contact list changed to new look. And others are bug fixes.

      1. sonali its doesn’t wipe any data…jus download and it will restart and install updates and u r done….

  7. does it wipe personal data? and do v hv to check again and again if the updat has come (in settings)?

  8. I bought my moto g from UAE!! Is der any chances to get update for my device? It hav falcon asia retail version.

  9. I am in Delhi and own a Moto G.
    I have not received any update about 4.4.4. as on 14th July 2014 (Monday), 11.30pm India Time (IST).
    I also checked several times in Settings >> About Phone >> System Updates

    What do I do?

  10. somebody please tell me when the moto g update will roll out? i lost my patients…. so please tell me the fact

    1. Have patience kid, update rolls in waves for random IMEI numbers. People from all the parts of country have already received it. Your turn will be soon, I am in mumbai waiting for the update.

  11. I have a moto x. I put up in Delhi. Haven’t received the update yet. Been 10 days since the announcement.

      1. Excellent performance, except the camera. No flash. No front camera and 5MP back cam is also not great. Rest all are excellent.

  12. My Moto X got automatic download of 4.4.3. And since then Moto X reboots (automatically, mostly during conversations) about 8-10 times a day. How I can get 4.4.4. I am in Bangalore. Phone was bought in USA

      1. do u use any app to take screen shot i cant take screenshot by pressing volume and power button.

      2. No, you just used to push the “volume down” button and “power “button together without any delay. Then you’ll be able to take screenshot..

  13. Don’t update 4.4.4 on Moto E. After the update the phone’s WiFi, many sound related application, music player, and Bluetooth did not work. I downgraded back to
    4.4.2 to make it work. And please if someone knows how to hide the notifications bar for system upgrade without root please let me know.

  14. i have bought my moto e from flipkart it has the version 4.4.4 and in settings
    about phone there are no updates avaliable
