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.
Not sure but think KK is more of stream lining for developer options. Plan on holding off the update myself for abit. As is stands flash does not work with 4.4 and 4.3 is still fine with me.
