In a recent update today the Dell Venue 8 tablet has received an update from Android 4.3 Jelly Bean to Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat. With it comes many features previously unavailable to Venue 8 users.
My favorite features are as follows:
This is a feature for apps for gaming, video, reading, or any other activity that would benefit from a lack of the default touch buttons on the bottom of the screen.
When you enter the Google Now app, you can now say “Ok Google” to activate voice search, saving your preoccupied fingers.
More Efficient RAM Usage
With the 4.4 update, android is now more efficient with memory usage. This means that, theoretically, your tablet will run faster with the new update and will freeze less often from too little memory available.
