    anyone care to comment about immersion mode or google experience launcher?? where is this in 4.4? how do u use it?

    The Google Experience Launcher is exclusive to the Nexus 5 for right now, but you can sideload the .apk and get it running. Motorola releases Android 4.4 KitKat update for Verizon Moto X | The Verge

    As for the immersion mode, the framework is there in 4.4, but apps have to be coded to take advantage of it and I'm not sure many of them have yet.

    What I did to have a fuller kit kat experience was download nova launcher beta (novalauncher.com/beta>install latest apk on phone). In the settings, you can change the icon theme, app drawer transparency, scroll indicator, folder background color, font, nav and notification bar transparency, and more. I got really confused about what was changed and what was not because I had the launcher installed before the update. It kind of seems like a half a**ed update, but an update is better than no update, so I'm grateful. I'm disappointed that the dialer app does not do business searches and I'm wondering if the business caller ID works. Also, the update seemed to override nova launchers icons, switching the dialer app icon back to the old version. I had to download kit kat HD in order to get the new dialer icon back. It's a little thing, but I like the new icon better. Also, I hope they update Motorola assist to support hangouts.

    The business caller ID does work. After the update I got a call from a random unknown number that had been calling me off and on for months. This time the name of the business the call was from showed up.

    The update broke the dialer on my Son's phone. It crashes immediately upon opening. Has anyone heard of a problem similar to this? I've tried everything I can think of to get it running with no luck.

    Does the update force you to use your sms in hangouts. I'll be passed if so. If I wanted **** like that I would have Bought a Nexus
    This has always been optional. Even on the Nexus 5 you can use a separate SMS app for SMS if you want.

    It seems that music widgets no longer work with Android 4.4 Kit Kat on my Moto X. I do have widgets enabled in the security settings. Anybody else having this issue?

    I've tried both Google Play Music and Pandora, I don't get a widget on my lockscreen when listening to either app.

    I've rebooted, tried the default launcher (I use Nova launcher), tried force stopping the app... nothing works. Any ideas on how to fix this??

    Factory reset the device.

    Immersion mode works just fine. Open Google Play Books and open a book...the whole screen becomes filled just like on the Nexus 5.

    I think I read about a few people having this same problem and it was just an issue with the shortcut. Try deleting the shortcut from your dock, open the dialer app from the app drawer, then add the shortcut back to your dock. Hope that helps!

    Kit Kat broke voice search on Google Search for me. The microphone icon is now an outline and the search field used to say something like "Type or say "Ok Google". Now it doesn't.

    Touchless control (Ok Google Now) still works to initiate actions and searches, but once I've done a search, I can't say Ok Google to continue the searching. I've checked that voice search is checked in settings. I also cleared the data and rebooted. Still doesn't work.
    I have also noticed this with mine...I even uninstalled and reinstalled Google Search and it still doesn't work.

    Has anyone gotten this to work? Or noticing the same thing?

    GEL does work on this device. You can sideload the .apk and your latest Google Search update supports it. Some icons are updated with it (camera and settings) while others are not (phone, google search, google settings).

    I've noticed switching between GEL and Nova Prime Beta that there is a strange wallpaper resizing thing going on, that's easily fixable by just opening the wallpaper interface and then backing out of it, but still strange.

    I would also like to know this since I can't get my working either. And I've ensured that English is the default language selected. But I've noticed that Offline speech recognition hasn't a probably recognizing that English is available and the latest language pack has been updated.

    I found the motorola manual for the moto x with the kit kat upgrade and this behavior is how it is described in the manual (i.e. they say tap the microphone in Google Now to do voice search). I suspect that they disabled it so it doesn't conflict with Touchless Control.

    Try turning on location services. There's a long thread in Google Groups somewhere about Google Now (and OK Google) not working after Kitkat and it needs location services turned on and US English.

    From Paul from Nexus in the thread I mentioned:

    Here's the latest information I have:

    This is not a hardware issue. There are several reasons you may not see Google Now which I'll outline below.

    1. Double-check if Google Now is on
    It's possible you skipped turning on Google Now while you were initially setting up your device. See*this help center article*for instructions on activating Google Now.

    2. Check Google Location Reporting
    Launch the Google Settings app and select Location, then look under Google Location Reporting. If this option isn't available to you then Google Location Services and Google Now are not offered in your geographic region.

    3. Google Now may be disabled by your Google Apps administrator
    If you're using a Google Apps account your admin may not have activated Google Now. Please speak with your Google Apps administrator about activating Google Now.

    4. Google Now isn't working with your Google Apps (free edition) account
    Some people in this thread have discovered that if their administrator toggles location services off and on again in the Google Apps administration control panel this clears up the problem on your device.

    If none of the above scenarios apply to you, we'd appreciate it*if you would long-press in any open section of your home screen and then select Help & feedback >*Send feedback. When sending a feedback report it would be very helpful if you:
    Include a detailed description of the problem.
    Scroll to the bottom of the feedback tool and change the User Account setting from Anonymous to your email address.
    When you send feedback through that method it helps us gather all these sorts of reports in one place, as well as some data useful for us to diagnose issues such as this.

    It's for Google Now mainly but maybe there's something here you can follow up with?
