Android 4.4.2 KitKat for Galaxy Note 10.1 2014

Samsung has begun pushing out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, the high-end tablet that was launched alongside the Galaxy Note 3 back in September last year.

The update should include all the standard KitKat features and improvements – faster/smoother performance, white status bar icons, wireless printing support, full-screen album art and a new camera shortcut on the lock screen, options to select the default home and SMS apps, enhanced sound controls for specific Samsung apps, and general stability improvements.

The update is currently out in Columbia for the Wi-Fi-only variant (SM-P600), and should soon be making its way to other regions. As usual, the update will be rolling out gradually and could take a few days to reach everyone, though you can take a peep into the Settings » General » About phone » Software updates menu to force the update to show up right away.
