HTC One KitKat update arrives for Sprint customers, manual update requests only

The HTC One KitKat update for North American carriers didn’t meet the original self-imposed deadline, but HTC doesn’t appear to be too far off. Yesterday we reported that carrier-branded HTC One handsets in Canada were already seeing the update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and late final night Sprint’s neighborhood page revealed that the update was arriving for their network as nicely – at least type of.
The update is now live, provided you manually check for it. Reportedly the actual “network initiated roll-out” will start from February 11th onward, but for those that don’t like to wait, the update is starting to seem for clients that initiate the request. In other words, that implies that going to Settings and checking for an update is all you ought to do. Last night, however, most users were reporting that their attempts to drag down the update weren’t working.
 
the nice news is that this state of affairs seems to have changed.
 
As of this morning, many Sprint users are reporting that the update is now live, offered you manually inspect for it. So what’s new here? manifestly the largest change is Android 4. 4.
 
2 and all the goodies that come with KitKat . apart from this, Sense 5. 5 is also supplied with the update. while a full change-log isn’t available just yet, we imagine that there are a few other HTC-specific bug fixes and improvements as well. So how about, have you managed to get your hands on the KitKat for the Sprint HTC One yet? If so, let us know how the set up (and aftermath) has gone so far.

    Motorola Migrate update improves pairing, fixes issues

    [#protected_0#]

    If you bought the [#protected_0#] or one of Motorola‘s other recent handsets, Motorola Migrate likely served as a mixed blessing: while easy to use, it suffers from various bugs that could cause a random loss of connection or trouble pairing. Today the company pushed out an update for the app addressing the problems.

    Motorola Migrate is a handy way to transfer the data from one’s previous handset to their new Motorola device, including things like text messages and contacts. The app is available from the Google Play Store, and once downloaded it works with wifi.

    The old handset is used to scan a QR code generated by the app on the new handset, which then allows the two handsets to connect with each other. Those who have cameras with fixed focus could run into issues with this, having trouble scanning the code.

    The update brings support for QR pairing with a smartphone that has a fixed-focus camera. Beyond this, a number of unspecified bugs that could cause trouble with transferring data between handsets have also been addressed, potentially eliminating any “connection lost” or similar errors.

    Chrome Beta update brings undo close and fullscreen video controls

    Google has just rolled out an update to the beta branch of its Chrome browser for Android and it brings a few interesting features. Debuting in this update is the ability to re-open recently closed tabs, more multi-window support, and better HTML5 video controls.

    Desktop browsers like Chrome and Firefox have long had the ability to “undo” closing of tabs, but mobile browsers have lagged behind in that aspect. Now, Google Chrome Beta is finally catching up. Closing a tab via the tab manager will show an overlay with an option to undo the action. Like on the desktop, users will be able to go through the stack of closed tabs as long as the overlay is visible. Be careful though as it only stays visible for five seconds after a tab is closed.

    Also in this update is better support for HTML5 videos. In particular, videos can now be played fullscreen complete with Subtitles as well as playback controls. This feature takes such videos one step closer to feature parity with Flash videos, which are no longer supported on Android.

    The release notes also mention support for some multi-window devices, though it doesn’t mention which ones exactly. Chrome, both Beta and final versions, already support Samsung TouchWiz multi-window. We can only presume that this update adds support for third-party implementations and maybe LG’s own multi-window feature.

    Chrome Beta now also supports casting some videos to Chromecast, though YouTube support is noted to be still incomplete. Even fullscreen video controls are still not complete. The updated Chrome Beta can be download now from Google Play Store and can be installed side by side with the regular Chrome version with no problems.

    Android 4.4.2 update rolling out for Sprint One Max

    HTC One Max Drop Down

    Earlier this week, HTC unveiled its all-new HTC One (M8), bringing a slightly redesigned look, improved specs and enhanced software. While the M8 is a major jump forward for HTC, the good news is that they haven’t forgotten about the HTC One (M7) and its brothers, the Mini and Max.

    Just yesterday, the AT&T version of the HTC One Mini received an update to Android 4.4.2, and now it’s time for the Sprint version of the HTC One Max to get some KitKat lovin’ as well! So what’s all new here in today’s update? Honestly, not a whole lot, other than Android 4.4.2 KitKat and all the goodies that come with it.

    Here’s the update change-log, though as you can see it’s a little sparse on details:

    • Android 4.4.2 update
    • Security enhancements
    • Cloud Print service
    • New Bluetooth profiles to support more media interactions

    In typical fashion, this is a staged rollout so it may take a few days or more to reach everyone. If you haven’t received a notification prompting you to download, you can check for an update manually by going into your device settings. It’s also worth noting that this is a 343.93MB file, so you’ll want to be on Wi-Fi if data usage is a concern.

    Have you received the update yet for your One Max, if so did everything go smoothly both during installation and after? Any other new HTC or carrier specific changes worth noting?

    Amazon Cloud Drive Photos update includes major changes

    <a rel=amazon cloud drive photos” src=”http://cdn01.androidauthority.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/amazon-cloud-drive-photos.jpg” width=”705″ height=”344″ />

    With all the cloud storage options available it’s easy to forget about one of two of them from time to time, and Amazon is trying to remind everyone that it has a cloud storage service with a huge update to the Amazon Cloud Drive Photos app.

    The newest update to Amazon Cloud Drive Photos bumps the app from version 1.9 all the way to version 3.0 to show just how much has changed. The app features a completely redesigned photo viewing experience, which the changelog says will “bring enjoyment back to viewing photos and videos on the go.”

    The new version of the app has a simpler navigation that follows some standard Android guidelines like the left-side settings panel. That panel also includes a new status bar to show you the status of you automatic and manual uploads, though it’s hard to imagine why Amazon didn’t include a status bar in older versions of the app. Amazon also improved the sorting in the app, letting you put videos into their own folder and sort photos and videos by date and name.

    Of course, Amazon Cloud Drive Photos still automatically uploads your photos and videos to the cloud service. Amazon offers 5GB of storage for free, which isn’t a whole lot compared to Google Drive, but still not bad if you mainly use it for photos.

    Amazon Cloud Drive Photos still looks closer to Amazon’s Kindle Fire OS than stock Android, but that’s to be expected. At least the company has a signature style for all of its apps that it sticks to.

    Have you tried Amazon Cloud Drive Photos? Or do you use a different cloud service to back up your photos?

    NVIDIA SHIELD update will bring Kit Kat, improve GameStream

    The latest update for the NVIDIA SHIELD has been detailed. This update isn’t scheduled to arrive until early April, but it is one that should have SHIELD users looking forward to seeing arrive. NVIDIA has said this update will bring the system to Android 4.4.2. While Kit Kat sounds nice, there is so much more involved here including key updates for Gamepad Mapper, TegraZone, and GameStream.

    Gamepad Mapper

    Beginning first with the Gamepad Mapper. Here we have what is being dubbed a “new, polished up user interface.” NVIDIA mentioned how this means easier access to download and share Mapper profiles, as well as the ability to access Mapper with a long press of the NVIDIA button or the Start button.

    TegraZone

    In terms of the TegraZone portion of the update — this means a new UI which should help in regards to game organization and discovery. TegraZone will also get a new integrated news feed with the latest SHIELD and TegraZone articles. NVIDIA also mentioned how there are now 140 games available in the TegraZone.

    GameStream

    With Gamepad Mapper and TegraZone out of the way, we can now get into what seems to be the key piece of this update — the GameStream portion. This includes Remote GameStream, notebook support, Bluetooth keyboard and mouse support and more.

    Remote GameStream and the notebook support are both noted as being in beta. As for the Remote GameStream, this means SHIELD users will be able to stream PC games to SHIELD from outside the home. This will include wake on LAN support and remote login support. The notebook support will allow users to stream PC games to SHIELD — provided they are using a compatible GeForce GTX-based notebook computer.

    The Bluetooth keyboard and mouse support touches on the Console Mode on SHIELD. Basically, those streaming a keyboard and mouse PC game from the computer to the big screen (through Console Mode on the SHIELD) will now have proper peripheral support. And lastly, those additional GameStream enhancements break down as follows;

    • Manually add unofficially supported games to your GameStream list from GeForce Experience.

    • Pin-based PC to SHIELD pairing with ability to pair multiple PCs to your SHIELD
.
    • USB Y-cable support – charge your SHIELD when using Ethernet in Console Mode with a micro USB Host OTG Y Cable
.
    • Advanced Settings – manually set bitrate, FPS, and optimal settings preferences. In TegraZone, go to Settings -> GameStream PCs -> Menu -> Advanced.

    If you’ve been wondering whether or not BlackBerry was still actively working on PlayBook OS updates, it seems there’s enough information out there to say they are indeed. Although there’s no sign of when or even if it will be rolled out, they’ve now got OS version 2.1.0.1895 certified and right at this very moment, there’s a BlackBerry Bridge update rolling out through BlackBerry World with a few changes in it. Thanks, Thurask!
