AT&T Galaxy S5 receiving update, Android 4.4.4 KitKat, VoLTE and more
We have been informing you of update after update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 around the globe, and now it is time for AT&T customers to have their turn. The OTA is rolling out now, but you are not to enjoy Android 5.x Lollipop, welcome folks to Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
In addition to the bump in KitKat version, going from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4, AT&T Galaxy S5 users will now have HD Voice capability, which the rest of us just call VoLTE. If that is not enough for you, you are now the proud owner of some new apps, whether you like it or not.
The changelog on this nearly 500MB official OTA update is as follows:
- Android 4.4.4 KitKat
- – Miscellaneous improvements, bug fixes and security updates
- HD Voice Capability (VoLTE)
- AT&T Service additions:
- – Mail – ATT Mail (att.net mail)
- – AT&T Live
- – Uber
- – Remote Support
If you are a root user, please remember that this KitKat update will more than likely patch up your exploited version of Android. You’ll need to hang off for a new exploit before you can enjoy root functionality again.
Watch for the Android 4.4.4 KitKat OTA update on your AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 coming soon, if it hasn’t landed already. Those we have heard from report that the update indeed is an improvement on device performance, even if it isn’t the Lollipop you were hoping for.
