Smart, simple and truly yours
Beautiful & immersive
A more polished design, improved performance and new features.
Just say “OK Google”
You don’t need to touch the screen to get things done. When on your home screen* or in Google Now, just say “OK Google” to launch voice search, send a text, get directions or even play a song.
A work of art
While listening to music on your device, or while projecting movies to Chromecast, you’ll see beautiful full-screen album and movie art when your device is locked. You can play, pause or seek to a specific moment.
The book that you're reading, the game that you're playing or the movie that you're watching – now all of these take centre stage with the new immersive mode, which automatically hides everything except what you really want to see. Just swipe the edge of the screen to bring back your status bar and navigation buttons.
Android 4.4 takes system performance to an all-time high by optimising memory and improving your touchscreen so that it responds faster and more accurately than ever before. This means that you can listen to music while browsing the web, or race down the highway with the latest hit game, all without a hitch.
Smart & simple
Google smarts improve every corner of the Android experience.
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 not in your contacts, your phone will look for matches from businesses with a local listing on Google Maps. Learn more about caller ID by Google
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.
Sometimes words can’t express how you feel. For that, there’s Emoji, the colourful Japanese characters, now available on Google Keyboard.
Grab & go
New features help you get things done while you’re on the move.
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.
Pick a file, any file
From apps like Quickoffice, you can open and save files on Google Drive, other cloud storage services or your device. And with quick access to recently used files, it's easier than ever to send the file that you were just working on.
Your office, anywhere
