    I have searched but did not find a match. I have owned a Moto X for all of 36 hours before receiving an OTA update which is acting differently than previous versions. In particular, the Wi-Fi antenna which is normally 'blue' when you have a viable connection, and white when there is no data being exchanged. After the update the antenna is always white, even with a viable connection. I did not note the previous version, but the new one is 4.4.2

    Please tell me this is a bug or glitch and that I'm not already doing an FDR...

    It's not a bug or a glitch - it is a design decision by Google for KitKat. The network icons are now always white, even if you have lost a Google Play services connection (on Jellybean it was blue for connection to Google Play, white if you are connected but without Google Play services connectivity.)

    If you pull down the settings shade (either pull down the notification shade and tap the settings icon top right, or pull down from the status bar with two fingers from the right side of the bar), the network icons there will be orange when you have no Google Play services connectivity, or white when you do.
