Again no changelog has been announced yet but the build number reported as KRT16O but here are some initial features you are about to noticed.
I was hoping for a big visual change like the nexus 5. No transparent menu, status or even app drawer. The only differences I notice are some of the icons and white status icons. The Google launcher isn’t here either, swiping to the left doesn’t reveal Google now. You also still can’t delete home pages, still the default 5. Editing a home page also isn’t like the nexus 5, the widgets are still in the app drawer.
We’ve been following this Android 4.4 KitKat development for some months now and we will try to gather some additional info about this update on Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.
