HTC One M8 on Verizon Android 4.4.4 update appears


It’s always good to be able to bring readers details of operating system updates, and today’s news is for owners of HTC’s flagship smartphone. The HTC One M8 on Verizon Android 4.4.4 update has now appeared, and also brings along the new Eye Experience that HTC recently revealed.

Android 4.4.4 KitKat will be a welcome addition for One M8 users, who are also likely to be interested in the new Eye Experience features that the new HTC Desire EYE comes with out of the box. The One M8 is the first other handset that HTC is pushing out Eye Experience for, as befits its flagship status.

Big Red hasn’t yet given a full changelog for this latest update, but as well as 4.4.4 KitKat the Eye Experience features include Screen Share for showing screen info to others in a video chat, Auto Selfie, Split Capture for a split screen during video capture, and more. The update is 210MB in size and has an estimated download time of 6 minutes.

Verizon advises you to charge your device during the update or you should have it charged to at least 50% before you attempt to download and install it. As usual with these kinds of updates this will be rolled out over several days so you may need to be a little patient. Alternatively you can check your device manually by heading to Settings followed by Software Update followed by Check New.

If you’re a Verizon customer with the HTC One M8 we’d be interested to know if you have already received this update? If so, what are your thoughts on the Android 4.4.4 KitKat and Eye Experience improvements and changes? Let us know with your comments.

    I have a One M8 from Verizon, I’m looking for the update yesterday and today, and nothing appear, just the message We were not able to download this update. To retry, go to settings>software update, Do you think that this happen because the update is not ready for all devices, and I have to wait some days?
