Nexus 7 Android KitKat 4.4 update creates problems

It was just last week when Google decided to update two of its devices to Android 4.4 KitKat, and that was the Nexus 7 and 10, with the Nexus 4 planned for a later date. However, it is only the Wi-Fi models that benefited from the update.

The software update promised to make both Nexus tablets better thanks to improved features and bug fixes, but for some Nexus 7 owners it has not been a smooth upgrade process.

We have already seen from some Product Reviews readers that Nexus 7 Android KitKat 4.4 update has created problems, and they are not isolated to just one issue.

One reader has said “when using Bluetooth headsets and listening to music, the moment I press the home button the sound quality goes very strange before going back to normal.”

There is also an overlap issue with the My Library widget on the home screen because some owners have complained that when they go from portrait to landscape the widget then overlaps the search bar.

Three other issues that you need to be aware of are, no Google Now on the Nexus 7 home screen, notifications and home screen bar are not transparent anymore and also people have been unable to delete home screens.

There has already been an update for KitKat, and so we wait to see when the Nexus 7 gets this update to help to fix these issues.
