Moto G GSM Models Receive Small OTA Update
GSM variants of the Moto G are getting a small update to software version 174.44.1 which brings with it some fixes and a new feature. First up is the big new addition, which is the introduction of USB OTG support, which allows people to plug in flash drives and the like into the G to get a little extra storage space, which is a nice touch for sure. There are fixes to wallpaper issues as well as low in-call volume, too. Overall a nice update that has been spotted in the UK and the US – it’s already appeared on my Vodafone UK Moto G – so stay tuned for a CDMA update.
