A few days ago the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the latest in the Galaxy Note series, received the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update. Phones in Poland that possessed the quad-core Snapdragon processor reportedly were among the first to be updated with other variants around the world following suit. The update was one that was previously leaked on the internet with the build number N9005XXUENA6 so the guys at Samsung most certainly thought it to be a sufficiently stable version. But even though they released this update, they did not move very fast when releasing a changelog in order to provide us with a more detailed description of the changes that took place. Luckily, Sammobile managed to obtain a document from inside Samsung itself that supposedly describes in a very accurate fashion what has been improved with the update to the latest and greatest version of Android. But let's briefly talk about what Android 4.4.2 brings to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Well, for starters, you will now be able to see album art on the lock screen while the music is playing. There is also a camera shortcut on the lock screen now while Android KitKat supports upgraded GMS apps, like Photos and Drive, and a larger number of emoticons. You can now select between Messages and Hangouts and choose your preferred texting app. Selecting between the various launchers at your disposal, whether they are from Samsung or not, is now done more easily thanks to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. A very talked about feature was the Wireless Printing Support that comes along with Android KitKat. These were most of the upgrades and add-ons that come along when you make the jump to KitKat. Have you received the 4.4.2 update to your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 yet? If yes, what do you think of it? Tell us and leave a comment in the comment section below.
