    Motorola themselves confirmed the rollout of Android 4.4.4 has started for their phones. For now they specifically mentioned only the Moto G, the Moto E and the Droid Ultra, and these are only in specific regions at this time. The widespread rollout will continue for these and most of their devices over the next few weeks.

    On top of the usual features from Android 4.4.3, including a new dialer, the ability to pause during video recording, and enhanced camera image quality, the Android 4.4.4 update also includes some additional bug fixes and security updates.

    It seems as if Moto plans to bring the update to as many of their devices as possible with this rollout. Here's a quick quote from them,

    As you can see, they have a software updates page listed which can help you determine if your device is soon to get the update or not. Sound off if you have received yours.

    I'm going to stop getting my hopes up. I hate the current dialer. I'm running a dialer app. I can't wait for a new dialer but I'm not holding my breath. VZ always seems to be last because they always have to add something useless to the update.

    Does 4.4.4 fix the mms issues introduced with 4.4.2 on so many devices?

    Here is what the new dialer looks like on a Droid Maxx kitkat 4.4.4. Not impressed.

    Looks nice. What I hate about the dialer on the X is the recent call screen. The layout gets on my nerves.

    I cleared my log so I can't show what that looks like.

    That looks exactly the same as what we have now. The only change is the phone icon is white instead of green. I was hoping we'd get the KitKat dialer. I miss it from my Moto X.

    Not a huge fan of the dialer. It actually opens up to "Recent" activities list.

    In phone, go into settings(3 dots), click on Show dialpad.

    Nevermind that. It's just for dialing numbers.
