Motorola has announced the update to Android 4.4.4 for the the Droid Maxx, Droid Mini, and Droid Ultra. It’s remarkable that these devices received the update (version 21.11.21) even before than the Moto X, even though the company has announced that it will come soon for the Moto X too.

This new version brings a good number of improvements over the previous one, which was 4.4.2 for these devices. Motorola has announced the main changes that the new version will bring. The most important are sum up here:

Camera – Improved image quality. Improved camera image quality including better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash coloring, improved photos in low light conditions using front camera.

Camera – Pause video recording. Added the ability to pause video recording with a convenient pause/resume button on the viewfinder.

Updated Verizon applications. Added the latest versions of 2 Verizon applications: VZ Cloud and Visual Voicemail application (VVM3.)

Added Isis mobile wallet application. Added the Isis mobile wallet application for contactless payment for Droid Ultra users on Verizon.

Fixed Bluetooth connectivity issue. Fixed a bug that could cause issues with Bluetooth connectivity for some users.

Enables Motorola Alert Application download. New Motorola Alert application sends periodic alerts with your location to your selected contacts.


If you have already received the message regarding the update, you can install it directly tapping on the notification bar. Once the software has been downloaded, we can install it and enjoy the new version once the phone re-starts.

On the contrary, if you haven’t received the notification message yet, you can manually update the phone from the “System updates”, under “About phone”. We need to select “Yes, I’m in” and once the file has been downloaded, we can install it.
