    Shortly after Google revealed the latest version of its mobile OS a few days back, we wrote about some of the new features & improvements introduced in Android 4.4 KitKat. Its been over a week since the release now, and many of us have had a chance to play around with the OS. With that, we have come across a few features that werent highlighted by Google, but can nevertheless prove to be quite useful to many users. Not all users are going to find a use for each one of these features, and not all of them are entirely new major additions to the OS; in fact a few of them are more along the lines of refinements to existing features, or handy components of newly added KitKat features that havent been specifically highlighted by Google or the press so far. So, lets take a look at a few of the lesser-known features brought to Android in the 4.4 KitKat update.

    My experience with jelly bean is so good rather then kit kat. It give you an extra feature but there are so many bugs and you will find out as you come in front of this.

    Finally found the File Picker. Open quick office > open file > settings at the top right

    The file picker is invoked whenever you have to pick a file. Who would have thought? There isn't only one way to call it up. Try attaching a file to your email, uploading a file to dropbox, etc.

    Sheesh... people these days.
