Motorola officially announced the upgrade last week, which is also available for the Droid Razr Maxx HD.

The new software brings many new features to the smartphone, allowing users to personalize their phone to deliver a better experience.

Some of these new features include Google Now, Voice Search, and Richer Notifications.

The updated Google Now lets users know what they will need for their day before they even ask. For example, if it's going to be a rainy day, the smartphone will inform the user and tell them to bring an umbrella. It will also redirect them on their routes to destinations in order to avoid heavy traffic caused by accidents and other issues. It will also provide them with the scores from their favorite sports teams from the previous night.

Voice Search will allow users to ask their device a question that will run a quick search and provide them with the best possible answer. It is similar to Apple's Siri.
