You won't be forced to use Hangouts. This article I think casts a little light: KitKat SMS Situation Revisited: New SMS Rules Ensure There Is One App In Charge Of Your Messaging History, But Everything Else Is OK

If I've read it right, KitKat's changes include setting one messaging app as "default", message handler, but any qualified app can request to be default. So there's nothing to stop you making the HTC message app the default if you prefer (or Hancent, Chomp etc I assume, once all of these are updated for 4.4). I'd expect other apps can view messages, and that you can send from other apps. So while Google may just bundle Hangouts as a single messaging solution, there's nothing to stop HTC keeping a separate SMS/MMS app (whether Google will provide the APIs to let you use Hangouts messaging from another app I don't know).

Whoa Hadron. I just missed typed your user name. It's funny what happens when you mix a couple letters up...But I digress.

Anyway the glitches are that web pages close without warning or freeze up. Sometimes I can't press radio buttons and it is impossible to manually insert my curser where I want. Instead I have to use the volume buttons.

You are right. The software download option is back today and I'm in progress. I think it may be actually working this time because the wait time is a lot longer. I've got 2 minutes left. Fingers crossed...and it seems to be installing now! Yay! Patience does work!!!

I've noticed a few cool updates but I was hoping for more.
-The best is you can now turn Blink Feed Off meaning you can make it go away completely! Great move HTC!
-The google now feature works better. You no longer have to press the mike to speak.
-There is an emoji addition to the keyboard but it is still not swipeable. If you have Kii, then you can swipe but you can't have the emojis. Frustrating.

thread has been trimmed of old outdated posts now that 4.4 is rolling out. please keep chatter to a minimum on on topic.

@kth13, those "features" you speak about are already out on 4.3/sense 5.5. thats not new or specific in 4.4.

Running KitKat now and no you don't need to use Hangouts, the Message app is still there and works fine.

It's still Sense 5.5 and there's very minimal design changes.

Default Upgrade 4.4 in Europe

I got 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5 OTA today in Norway

I can’t see the big changes yet. The fonts and design of the PIN-code menu has changed. Under NFC there are option for using it to pay. I don't remember seeing that before.
It’s to early so say anything about the battery. I have had it for just a few hours.

Can you let us know how you like it and what changes do you see ? Has it done anything to your battery life

Ok I don't know what I was thinking when I asked about the battery, after you've had it for awhile let us know how you feel about your battery life. Thanks

I just downloaded and installed the update for my Sprint HTC One. According to Google, the following feature is present:

"Just say “Ok Google”
You don’t need to touch the screen to get things done. When on your home screen* or in Google Now, just say “Ok Google” to launch voice search, send a text, get directions or even play a song"

Android - 4.4 KitKat

This does not work for me AT ALL. If I'm on my home screen and say "Ok Google", absolutely nothing happens. If I'm in Google Now and say "Ok Google", it recognizes it and starts listening, but not matter what I say, it just does a web search for it. So, if I say, "Ok Google, text Paul", it will search the web for "test Paul". If I say "Ok Google, play Pearl Jam - Even Flo", it will search the web for Even Flo.

Is anybody else having this problem?

Honestly, this is the only supposed feature in Kit Kat that really impresses me, and it isn't even working.

Edit - Okay, just before submitting I saw the fine print where it only works on the home screen on the Nexus 5. That's dumb, but whatever. The other features should still work inside of Google Now, but don't, at least for me.

Hmm I tried out the google now myself and it worked great for text, email and phone calls. I didn't say OK Google before using the voice feature though.

EDIT:

I've had the problem with the noise cancelling microphone since day one with my One. I've been forced to use speakerphone , had to forego sound with videos or using google now. Updated to 4.4 this morning and my problem disappeared. That microphone is now static free and works great.

Downloaded Kit Kat for Sprint, stock non rooted. The music has a visualizer with the lyrics. This is new I think, love it. Movies have closed captioning as well,gonna try that out too I have a couple of icons on my home screen now, they are the green android icon, one says people and one says phone. Both say app has not been installed. I have to look into these. Still using the Nova launcher, as I don't use sense.

Thanks, I don't know about custom icons so I don't think I am using them. I'm thinking these could possibly be features not offered with this phone, maybe for Nexus 5?

Of course, I also haven't had any other issues with the camera, so I'm not sure whether it made improvements or not. In another thread, I just now realized they removed the zoom bars, and now it just uses pinch to zoom, which apparently has been that way since at least 4.3

I thought that was a hardware issue which affects some handsets. I don't expect anything other than replacement to fix that one.

Yeah I think it was due to the Google Services, seems to be fixed in 4.4.2.

Default HTC one 4.4.2 (Kit Kat, verizon) rolling out

Initial thoughts, lock screen widgets/dock widgets were messed up (i run nova) but it was a quick fix. Also I'm not a fan of the battery bar up top going white. I liked it better when it was green. It looks like a 1990's video camera battery status bar. Also there is new security certificate features s which I liked but it said foxfi is bad(it does intercept traffic). So far I can't really tell much difference.

Nope mine is still turned on, is their a way to revert back to the previous android version (ice cream?). Maybe a root of the previous version would do the trick, my battery life sucks major..before the update I had no problems with the battery and it would last me all day long with ease.

Google around for HTC guru and his stock ROMs. I used one to go back to the stock 4.1.2 to get s-off

If you don't want the widgets, don't use it and you'll never notice.

If you want the old lockscreen then that's not a matter of disabling but replacement. Probably not possible without root, cannot guarantee it would work without downgrading as I've not tried. You could try a 3rd party like WidgetLocker if you don't like the new version.

This right here is what I would prefer but I guess I will just have to live with it. The new lockscreen is harder to unlock for me with the natural movement of my thumb when using it one handed.

Why is it that we have a shadowed 3G or 4G in the notification beside the signal bars at all times even on Wi-Fi?

Probably to indicate which mobile network you're in when you turn wifi off.

Interesting. That's something I've not noticed being different. Getting to widgets, yes, but the unlocking seems the same to me.

Ok, I'm running a custom ROM, but I don't think that aspect is different from stock.

Has anyone noticed the device get hot faster and even on Wi-Fi or is it just Verizon's variant. As far as flash support the Verizon One never supported flash.

If you do a search this is happening on the Nexus devices as well after kitkat. Happens to me all the time now. An apn change seems to help some but I am not that tech savy so I will have to wait for an update /fix.

Default HTC Share: no longer an option when trying to share pictures

I'm not sure if this is kitkat related but I no longer have the ability to share my pictures via HTC share. Anyone else having this problem? When I go into "accounts" and select my HTC account is says that sync is off and I have no way to turn it on. Has HTC stripped down this great service or has something changed of which I'm unaware?

Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

UPDATE:

Here's a follow up in case anyone else has the same problem. HTC first had me wipe the cache partition but that didn't work. But we then did a simple "clear data" under applications and that fixed it. I'm on Verizon and suspect the problem arose after the KitKat update.

Default lockscreen disable behavior after kitkat update

So I know I have to have pin lock due to work requirements. But ever since kitkat, I now also have to swipe up to unlock. Then it takes me to my pin unlock screen.

I have my "lock phone after" set to the highest 30 minutes. In the past if within that 30 minutes, all i need to do it hit power button and I could use my phone.

Now I have to slide up. I've tried "bypass lock screen on wakt", but that doesn't do anything. How can I eliminate the slide up so I don't have to do double to unlock phone?

The short answer is you cannot. HTC removed the option to not have a lockscreen with KitKat.

According to HTC it is normal for "Account Sync" to be off. To clear data do the following:

1. Settings to "App Manager";
2. Right scroll to get to "All";
3. Scroll down to HTC Share;
4. Click "clear data".

Oh man, I was using Foxfi to hotspot my Verizon HTC One at home to stream Netflix and play online on my Xbox without having to pay ridiculous Brighthouse bills. I guess I'm dead in the water now... Anyone have any work arounds? Foxfi was the only app that I could find that works for Verizon without paying for the mobile hotspot feature, which would also make me lose my unlimited data plan.

Also, my Google Calendar gives an error everytime I try to update/sync it since updating. "Unfortunately, Google Calendar Sync has stopped." Anyone know how to fix that?

Default [Issue after kit kat]Cloud keeps stopping

Hi everyone, got Kit Kat 4.4 for my Verizon HTC One last week and every since I upgraded I get a message every so often that Cloud has stopped.

Has anyone else had this problem? can you give me some suggestions on what I can do to correct this problem.

Thank you BRAINZ2013 for the welcome, it's the Verizon Cloud app that used to be Backup Assistant Plus or something like that. No, I didn't do a factory reset after the update...was I suppose to? Haven't had HTC One long so I'm learning about the phone as I go along so bear with me. Any help from you or anyone else in the forum would be great.

Why is it that Verizon's variant doesn't have the power saver mode and it makes no start up noise. It's very silent upon start up/booting. No power saver, why the hell not. Can someone decipher that for me?

On a update that pushes the android os up from jb to kit kat will need a factory update . this update will clear all the old jb data which isn't needed no more since you have a new os . old and new data Dont connect.

Kit Kat on my HTC One Sprint SUCKS!!! It has messed up my messages. I can NOT use default messaging app for SMS or MMS and Google Hangouts SUCKS. I am not 18 years old. The phone worked fine, now Kit Kat doesn't let the messaging get to my google voice number. Such crap.

If I had known this...I would NOT have updated it. If it ain't broke....

Now I am stuck with buggy nonsense. Cmon Sprint! FIX THIS!!!

If I do a factory reset, it doesn't guarantee a fix, and I will have to reload everything. Plex media server won't work unless I make changes to the sprint proxy servers.....what a joke.

Sprint + HTC ONE + KIT KAT = CRAP!!!

Have you looked in Settings > Wireless & Networks > More for the "default message app" setting. This is new in 4.4, so wonder whether setting that to the Messages app rather than Hangouts will fix it (i.e. whether Sprint have "helpfully" set this to Hangouts)?
