Android 4.4.3 Rolling Out to Moto X, E, and G Starting Today!
Folks, it looks like Good Guy Moto is at it again! Just yesterday, we covered the launch of Android 4.4.3, and today we took a look at the latest version of KitKat what exactly has changed in 4.4.3. Also earlier today, the update started making its way out to the WiFi-only version of the Nexus 7 (2013). Now, we’ve got some great news for Moto device owners, as Motorola has just announced that it will begin rolling out Android 4.4.3 to the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto E.
You may recall that just a little while ago, Motorola Mobility was acquired by Chinese computer manufacturer Lenovo. This naturally led many to wonder whether Googorola’s trademark timely updates would then be passed along to Motonovo. Well, judging from today’s announcements, any potential fears have been allayed.
Understandably, not every device in every region will receive the update immediate. But starting today, as stated by Motorola, the OEM will begin rolling out Android 4.4.3 to the following devices:
- Moto X T-Mobile users
- Moto G users who bought online in the U.S. (includes Moto G 4G LTE) and at retail in Brazil
- Moto E users who bought online in the U.S. For Moto E users, you are still up for the next major Android update as well. Consider this the cherry on top.
We don’t have any captured update OTAs, but we’ll be sure to update you when they pop up. Good job Motorola, this is the way to keep your customers happy!

Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
