A blockbuster month for fans of devices and gadgets, October was the month for the advent of the Android 4.4 KitKat; this occurred the week before the new iPad and iPad Mini were presented by Apple.
Naturally, everyone is anxious to see the response of Android to the Apple iOS 7. As it happens before our very eyes, here are some features to expect from Android 4.4 KitKat.
There is a plethora of long-awaited changes and new features; however, current users of Android will welcome them just the same.
Android 4.4 KitKat enables one to employ many tasks simply with the sound of your voice. This is similar to the Motorola Touchless Control—it is not necessary to touch the screen; you can just say “OK Google” to send messages, perform searches online and much more.
There is a design that is cleaner and more contemporary which gives bragging rights to Google. For example, the music application, movies application and phone app look more appealing than ever. However, in addition to looking pretty and being low maintenance, multitasking on the Android 4.4 KitKat is much faster.
Many users of Android may have felt they had no part of the emoji trend in the past, at least as much as Apple iOS users, but now Android 4.4 KitKat entails many fun emoji options for children and adults alike.
The revamped phone application from Google presently give precedence to individuals that you contact the most. This enables you to search for contacts, businesses and places nearby.
Caller ID has received enhancements as well. If you receive a call from an unknown contact, then Android will make an attempt to see if that number to a business matches with one registered on Google Maps.
There is even Chromecast support for individuals who enjoy using the Google device to stream music and videos online straight to your television.
According to industry rumors, the Android 4.4. KitKat update will be released sometime in February or March of 2014.
