So, this Dhanteras google has a good news for all the tech lovers..after a long wait and some much of speculations in the market about Android Kitkat 4.4 Google has finally unveiled the newest version of its Android smartphone software, aiming to allow more smartphone users access to its evolving menu of online services such as driving directions voice-activated search.

The new "KitKat" version of Android will be able to run on inexpensive, low-end smartphones as well as the most advanced devices, Sundar Pichai, Google senior vice president of Android, Chrome and Apps said at a press event in San Francisco.For ebook reading, games or even movies, Kit Kat will also sport what Google have coined an "immersive mode", which will automatically hide navigation clutter, leaving only the media playing to minimise distraction. Accessing navigation buttons will be a matter of swiping the edge of the screen.

The noticable feature of Kitkat 4.4 is voice search, which will incorporate key phrase activation. Even if your phone is on standby, you should be able to wake it and search by uttering a specific word combination such as "OK Google" and then telling it what you want to search for. The company also aims that the move could help them to ensure that more users have access to the growing selection of profitable online services. It also could make the Android software more attractive to third-party app developers, who have been frustrated by what they call the "fragmented" nature of Android devices.

According to a survey, Google's Android software runs on 80% of the world's smartphones. But many of the Android devices sold use older versions of the software, which are not compatible with many new features.So, it will be a great add on for the smartphones and also for the gadget lovers.
