AT&T Galaxy Note 2 receives Android 4.4.2 KitKat update

Android KitKat

Samsung has confirmed that they have begun rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for their AT&T Galaxy Note 2 phablet earlier today. This has came quite unexpectedly since the phablet is almost 2 years old – and yet Samsung has not forgotten about it.

This update will be available over-the-air so do make sure you’re connected to the WiFi before downloading as we expect it to come with a pretty hefty file size.

Here is the changes you can expect to see after the KitKat update:

  • New Lock Screen Access
    • Media Controls – full-screen album art and media controls when listening to music
    • Camera Shortcut  – access the Camera application right from the lock screen
  • Improved user experience when multiple messaging apps are installed – All SMS and MMS messages are together in the same app, alongside other conversations and video calls.
  • Visual content such as photos, videos, maps, books, and games are even better with full-screen immersive mode. The UI stays hidden while interacting with the content.
  • Restyled Status and Navigation Bars – status and navigation bars are translucent and can sit on top of apps, along with simplified status bar icons
  • New storage access framework – Simple for users to browse and open documents, images, and other files, across most customer preferred document storage providers.
  • Consolidated Location Settings – location services are integrated and more detailed by new Location menu
  • Expanded Emoji Icons
  • Wireless Printing – supports printing over Wi­-Fi and Bluetooth
  • Prevention Information pop-up message is suppressed.
  • New platform support for secure NFC-based transactions through Host Card Emulation (HCE).
  • Beats Music is Preloaded
  • Video player closed captioning Settings > My device > Accessibility > Google subtitles (CC) and Samsung subtitles (CC)
  • Can be set sound for Samsung apps (call/message/email/calendar) Setting > my Device > Sound > Samsung applications

Do share with us more about the update once you have it on your Galaxy Note 2!
