Verizon’s LG G2 starts to receive update


The Verizon version of the LG G2 has started to receive an OTA update this weekend. However, this update will not bring Android 4.4 to your handset, it will merely quash some bugs and add some more functionality.

According to Verizon, the quality of video playbacks seen direct from a website will be greatly improved after the update. Dialling *611 to have a chat with Verizon will actually have the number appear on screen.  If you’re using a messaging keyboard, Talk Back will now read each deleted letter. The number of times that the phone locks up should be reduced after the update, and the Verizon Cloud app now comes pre-loaded. After the update, QSlide will work with messaging and voice quality has been improved. Lastly, you’ll also find that a Google security patch had been added.

The update started rolling out on Friday, but as with most OTA updates, they are sent out on a staggered basis. So don’t worry if you haven’t got the update already, you’ll get it sooner or later. The update size is 172MB and the gossip is that the security patch included in the update will break root if you download and install the update.
