The Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.4.2, KitKat update is now rolling out to T-Mobile customers.
The update is now available over-the-air and weighs in at 388MB. It brings a modified version of Android KitKat OS with a few Samsung specific tweets.
It will bring improved stability, a new camera shortcut on the lock screen and a better on-screen keyboard. The update can also be downloaded manually through Samsung KIES. T-Mobile suggests that those downloading KitKat to their phone should be running the latest version of KIES. The device should also have about 50 percent charge since installation can be draining. Smartphones must already be running Android 4.3 in order to get 4.4.
The Galaxy S4 Android 4.4, KitKat also rolled out for AT&T customers earlier this month.
The update is 417.66MB and must be downloaded using a Wi-Fi connection. Once the update is installed, users will finally have the latest Android build.
The software has already arrived for U.S. Cellular customers as the company began offering it OTA (over-the-air) last week with several customers confirming they received it successfully.
It is also available for the International variant of the Galaxy S4 in Russia and India. Users can check for it manually if they haven't received a notification in the Settings menu.
Both Sprint and U.S. Cellular already began rolling out the software for the Galaxy Note 3.
The update is being rolled out in phases so different countries will receive it at, according to Samsung's release schedule. The KitKat update will roll out to most of Samsung's high-end devices in the near future.
