    Officially No, not for a good few months yet, un officially via Root and custom Rom, someone out there has probably done it, but if you don't know what your doing you can end up with an expensive paperweight very quickly.

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums tbeaud!

    Android 4.4 has only been released for the S4, Google Edition, GT-i9505G, so far. The Samsung roll-out is thought to be starting around January 2014. Therefore, the only way to get it now is to root your phone and flash a custom ROM based on KitKat, such as the one I have been running, which is taken from the Google Edition.

    For more information on this, visit the (AT&T) Galaxy S4 - All Things Root - Android Forums, which covers your phone version.

    I have 4.4 on my Nexus 7, and it's not much different than 4.3, so no need to rush, IMHO.

    The 4.4 update does not bring many noticeable changes.
