Google is expected to launch Android 4.4 Kit Kat later this month, the latest version of Google’s mobile OS is expected to launch with the new Google Nexus 5.
We previously heard that Google are expected to launch the Google Nexus 5 on the 14th of October, the handset is rumored to go on sale by the end of the month, and now it would appear that we may have some more information on Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
According to a recent report by Android Police, Android 4.4 Kit Kat will come with new location settings, and the location settings screen in the OS will change its name to just Location.
On top of the name change for the Location section, there will now be three different location modes that can be selected depending on your preferences.
The first new mode will be High Accuracy, and this setting will include GPS, WiFi and your mobile network, the second setting will be battery saving.
The battery saving setting will use networks and WiFi, the third mode will be device sensors only, which will basically use just the GPS on your Android device.
There will also be a new location history, which will basically show you which applications have been accessing your location services, this could be useful for battery saving, as you will be able to turn off services that are using location settings that you don’t need.
As yet we do not have an official date from Google on when Android 4.4 Kit Kat will be released, what we do know is that it will be some time this month, as soon as we get some more information we will let you guys know.
