Following the latest kerfuffle from Google and its delay in releasing the Nexus 5 and newest version of Android, they’ve finally ended up revealing both of them unexpectedly. Android 4.4 Kit Kat has arrived, at first exclusively for the new device, while users of the Nexus 4, 7, 10, Samsung Galaxy S4, and HTC One Google Play Edition will receive it over the next few weeks. These are some of the features of the most recent version of the Google operating system.
We all know that each version of Android takes its name from traditional desserts or candies, moving down the alphabet for the name of each release. Up to this point we’ve been able to run Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, HoneyComb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jellybean versions on our phones and tablets. And—finally—it’s just been confirmed that the next version of the operating system, number 4.4, will be called Kit Kat, putting to rest rumors that it might be named Key Lime Pie.
