Android 4.4 KitKat Update now available on Nexus 7

Last week, Google began rolling out the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 Android 4.4 KitKat updates to owners of the Wi-Fi variants. However, as we pointed out, only a small amount of Nexus 7 owners actually got the updates. While Google hasn’t cleared up the situation completely, it’s clear that the roll outs were halted so that it could introduce a brand new Android 4.4 KitKat update build, a build that was introduced earlier this week. Nexus 7 Android 4.4 KitKat updates are rolling out slowly Over-the-Air and as Google explained earlier today, the updates could take a week or more to roll out to users because Google needs to ensure a smooth experience. Those who aren’t keen on waiting for the Nexus 7 Android 4.4 OTA to arrive though now have the chance they have been waiting for. Nexus 7 owners who are also Nexus 4 users will be happy to know that the Nexus 4 Android 4.4 KitKat update is also available for manual install right now as well. The Nexus 7′s Android 4.4 KitKat update has been spotted lurking on Google’s servers. These files will allow those with the Nexus 7 to manually install the update ahead of the Over-the-Air update. The files are currently available to Nexus 7 HSPA+ (2012) owners and Nexus 7 LTE (2013) users. The Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi only update has also been found. Same with the Nexus 7 (2012) Wi-Fi only file.
