AT&T Moto X KitKat soak test begins

When Motorola took to the stage at the Moto G event, it was revealed that the Moto X would be seeing KitKat within a few weeks time. As it turns out, Motorola has been pretty spot on. Earlier this week Verizon surprised us all by being the first U.S. carrier to see the update to KitKat on the Moto X, and now it looks like it is almost AT&T’s turn.

Starting late last night, Motorola started sending out emails to AT&T Moto X owners that are part of the Motorola Feedback Network, inviting them to take place in an update soak test. Although the update didn’t specify that this is indeed KitKat, it seems pretty likely.

Now a soak test isn’t the same thing as a full release, but it is as sign that AT&T could be close to unleashing KitKat to all Moto X owners. How long will the process take? It really depends on how well the soak testing goes.

Judging by Verizon however, it could be here in a matter of days — just don’t get your hopes up too much just yet. We’ll be sure to update our readers with a new post when we learn more about the soak test, or (better yet) receive word of a full rollout.

What do you think of Motorola’s prompt handling of KitKat so far? Impressed, or not surprised now that they are more deeply connected to Google?

    I’m impressed Moto is getting the carriers to push the updates so quickly. . . imagine if they could just do it directly like apple.

    I love this. I fully expected the Moto X to get updates quickly and that played into my decision to get one. I got the email from ATT last night and promptly signed up for the test.

    That sounds nice, my Moto X is supposed to arrive on Monday :-)

    I got my email last night, my Nexus 10 hasn’t even gotten it’s update yet. I’m really impressed and think Moto is setting a great example as to why stock or nearly stock Android is better!!!
