We recently told you about a Nexus 7 update to Android 4.4.1, but it looks like Google are not waiting around – when it comes to official software updates anyway. The Nexus 7 2013 Android 4.4.2 update is now live and we have the update notes for those who have just spotted the OTA notification.
As mentioned above, this update is now rolling out OTA, so if you have the new Nexus 7 2013 model, you can just sit back and wait for Google to send you an OTA notification automatically. Alternatively though, you can download the Nexus 7 2013 Android 4.4.2 manually with the following links.
Google has already provided the update online for those who don’t want to wait. We can tell you that the Nexus 7 2013 update for the WiFi model is 1.7MB in size, while the Nexus 7 2013 LTE Android 4.4.2 update is larger at 52.8MB.
Here are the official change notes for those that are wondering what is new:
– Fix for clearing the VM Indicator
– Fix for delivery of the VM Indicator
– Various additional software fixes
– Security enhancements
As you can see, there is nothing too major to report, although Google may have included some hidden features in Android 4.4.2 that we haven’t spotted yet. If you want to download this now, you’ll find the Nexus 7 2013 4.4.2 update for WiFi here, those that have the LTE model should use this link instead – thanks to Droid-Life.
So there we have it. Are you running on the fresh Android 4.4.2 update on your Nexus 7 2013 model? Let us know any other changes that you have spotted.
