Google releases Android 4.4.2 KitKat, focused on improving security

It was only a month ago that Google presented its latest version for its mobile operating system, specifically Android 4.4 KitKat, a new update in which we found few aesthetic improvements – a change in the desktop system, important, but not radical either – but inside it had a lot of new features that were recently revealed and making Android 4.4 KitKat a much more interesting version than it seemed at first.

If a few days ago the news broke that Android 4.4.1 was available for some Nexus devices and we knew its news, tonight some of the users of devices with Google's signature have been even more surprised when a new one has jumped to them update on your terminal – without having surely tested Android 4.4.1 KitKat -, specifically a new version called Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Some have not yet been able to enjoy the first version of KitKat and others already have three.

As you can see in the image capture, this new update improves instability problems, optimizes performance and fixes some small bugs in Android 4.4.1 KitKat version. In the English version the data is higher, and it speaks of an improvement in the camera speed, better focus, plus better color rendering. He also discusses some bug fixes and performance improvements. Curious to see how depending on which language be said one thing or the other.
