Video: What is New in Android 4.4 KitKat



Android 4.4, KitKat
Break off a piece of KitKat, the latest version of Android.

Beautiful & Immersive
Faster multitasking
Android 4.4 takes system performance to an all-time high by optimising memory usage in every major component. That means you can run more of your favourite apps and switch between them faster than ever.
Smart & Simple
The future is calling
The new phone app automatically prioritises your contacts based on the people that you talk to the most. You can also search for nearby places and businesses, your contacts or people in your Google Apps domain.
A smarter caller ID
Whenever you get a call from a phone number that's not in your contacts, your phone will look for matches from businesses with a local listing on Google Maps.
All your messages in the same place
Never miss a message, no matter how your friend sends it. With the new Hangouts app, all of your SMS and MMS messages are together in the same app, alongside your other conversations and video calls. And with the new Hangouts, you can even share your location and send animated GIFs.
Grab & Go
Print wherever, whenever 
Now you can print photos, documents and web pages from your phone or tablet. You can print to any printer connected to Google Cloud Print, to HP ePrint printers and to other printers that have apps in the Google Play Store.



Please sit tight  it is a 12 minutes + video:



KitKat has been optimized to run on a much broader range of devices, with special focus on the millions of entry-level devices that have as little as 512MB RAM. To help, we've created new APIs, better tools, and better documentation to let you create apps that perform well on all devices. 

Check out this video summary of some of the most significant developer features in the latest Android release, including new ways to make your apps beautiful, NFC Host Card Emulation, a printing framework, the storage access framework, low-power step detector and step counter sensors, and more!



*Currently only available on Nexus 5, and hoping to come on actual Android devices worldwide.
