Oh Google, you’re so good sometimes when you let the world know that the HTC One Google Play edition isn’t the only device receiving KitKat today. According to the +Android page on Google+, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Play edition is also beginning its Android 4.4 KitKat rollout.

With word hitting earlier today that some HTC One Google Play edition owners were beginning to see the 320MB rollout of KitKat, it’s not entirely surprising to see this announcement.  Still, we’re giving Google the thumbs up for dropping both updates at the same time. However, the same reminder goes out in this post that went along with the HTC One announcement this morning: non-Nexus 5 devices will include the older stock Android launcher and not the variant integrated with Google now. So there’s that caveat to this news.

So there you have it, the Moto X and all Google Play edition devices are now receiving KitKat. Now let’s turn our attention to your “regular” Android lineup Samsung, LG and HTC…mmmkay?
