The HTC One and One M8 will both be grabbing the new version of Android KitKat 4.4.4, the fourth iteration of the KitKat brand, updating some of the recent issues plaguing the OS version.

Google claims the update will offer improved performance, security, more stability on the OS and general bug fixes. KitKat has had more iterative updates than any of the Jelly Bean versions, showing the minor issues plaguing the OS.

Of course, these will only be available for the Google Play Editions of the HTC One and One M8, the Sense versions of the two phones will have to wait a few months and might not come at all.

Other Google Play Edition smartphones will be getting the Android 4.4.4 update in the next few months, alongside the Nexus smartphones. Smartphones with different skins will most likely miss out the new update, as they prepare for the launch of Android L.

HTC hacker and developer llabtoofer commented on the Android KitKat 4.4.4 update coming to Google Play Edition devices of the HTC One and One M8 a few days ago, claiming it will be coming sometime in July.

No other HTC devices run on Google Play stock Android, meaning these are the only two HTC can push the update to quickly. HTC has said they want to get updates out to users within 90 days, meaning we might see Sense devices running Android KitKat 4.4.4 soon.

It is nothing to be really excited about, the update is all about bug fixes and patches. No aesthetic changes have been added to the update and no new features are available. Android L is full of changes to the UI and new features though, it should be landing sometime in the Fall, this year.
