KitKat update for Nexus 4 weighs in at under 240MB

Google has started to roll out Android 4.4 to the Nexus 4 smartphone. Reports claim that Nexus 4 owners are starting to see the Android KitKat update being made available for their devices, with the operating system upgrade coming to the smartphone after being made available on the Moto X, the Nexus 7, and the Nexus 10 tablets.

The over-the-air update totals 238MB, according to Android Central, with the update text advising about SMS and MMS changes to Hangouts, caller ID, local search, and Google Cloud Print. The same update will be more efficient in using RAM, which will help boost multitasking and app switching performance, and will also contain software enhancements designed to reduce touch input lag, among other changes.

Though some users are receiving the update, it will still take some time for all Nexus 4 users to get upgraded to Android KitKat. The Nexus 5, the larger successor to the Nexus 4, ships with Android 4.4 onboard.
