About Android 4.4
Android 4.4 (KitKat®) is the latest version of the world's favorite
operating system for mobile phones and tablets.
This guide introduces the Android 4.4 software available on Nexus
and Google Play edition mobile devices. It doesn't describe
hardware details such as SIM card instructions, battery
information, specs, and so on.
For comprehensive information about all types of Android phones
and tablets, including more details about Nexus and Google Play
edition devices, visit support.google.com/android.

When you first turn on your phone or tablet, you'll see a Welcome
screen. Choose the language you want and touch Start or the ►
IMPORTANT: To complete the setup process, you must have a
Wi-Fi or mobile Internet connection.
When prompted, you can sign in with your Google Account or

• Google Apps
• Any other Google product
When you sign in with a Google Account, all the email, contacts,
Calendar events, and other data associated with that account are
automatically synced with your device. If you have more than one
Android device, they are all kept in sync.
For example, if you change a friend's phone number on your phone,
that change also appears on your tablet and on any computers
where you're logged into your Google Account.
If you have multiple Google Accounts, you can add others later
from Settings > Accounts > Add account.
Make yourself at home
After you finish setting up your device, the Home screen appears
for the first time:
• To move between Home screens, swipe left or right.
• To use Google Now, swipe up from the bottom of the screen
or, on some Google Play edition devices, press and hold the
Home button. On Nexus 5, you can also swipe to the
leftmost Home screen.
• To send an SMS message from a phone, use ^ Hangouts.
• From the Home screen, say "Ok Google" to search your
phone or the Internet and start telling Google what to do
(Nexus 5 only). Or touch Google at the top of the screen to
do the same thing.
On brand new devices, you may also see your Google Play library
widget on one of your Home screens.

Some apps hide these buttons temporarily, or fade them to small
dots in the same position. To bring them back, touch the dots,
touch the screen in the middle, or swipe up from the bottom.
Google Play edition navigation buttons
Some Google Play edition devices have two or three physical
buttons just below the screen:
• Menu: This button opens options depending on the screen
• Home: Opens Home. If you're viewing a left or right Home
screen, opens the main Home screen. To open Google Now,
touch & hold this button.
• Back: Opens the previous screen you were working in, even if
it was in a different app. Once you back up to the Home
screen, you can't go back any further in your history.

(for example, on Nexus devices) or items in the permanent Menu
button at the bottom of the screen (on some Google Play edition
devices). Touch it to explore additional options, including help.

Touch & type
To select or activate something, touch it.
To type something, such as a name, password, or search terms,
just touch where you want to type. A keyboard pops up that lets
you type into the field.
Other common gestures include:
• Touch & hold. Touch & hold an item on the screen by
touching it and not lifting your finger until it responds. For
example, this is how you access accent and other special
characters on the keyboard.
• Touch, hold, & drag. Touch & hold an item for a moment and
then, without lifting your finger, move your finger on the
screen until you reach the target position. For example, you
can move apps around on the Home screen.
• Swipe or slide. Quickly move your finger across the surface
of the screen, without pausing when you first touch (so you
don't drag something instead). For example, you can slide a
Home screen left or right to view the other Home screens.
• Double-tap. Tap quickly twice on a webpage, map, or other
screen to zoom. For example, double-tap a picture in Chrome
to zoom in, and double-tap again to zoom out.
• Scale. In some apps (such as Maps, Chrome, and Gallery),
you can scale by placing two or more fingers on the screen
at once and pinching them together (to enlarge scale) or
spreading them apart (to reduce it). Alternatively, in some
apps you can double-tap and then, without lifting your finger,
drag up to reduce or down to enlarge the scale of the image.
• Rotate the screen. The orientation of most screens rotates
with your device as you turn it. To lock or unlock a tablet's
vertical orientation, swipe down from the top right of any
screen and touch the Rotation icon in Quick Settings. To do
the same thing on a phone, go to Settings > Device > Display.
You can open your device's Settings app from the
All Apps screen or from Quick Settings.
For example, to change notification sounds,
volumes, and more, go to Settings > Device > Sound
To change brightness, font size, and more, go to
Settings > Device > Display.
Help & support
Most Nexus screens include a ■ Menu icon that you can touch for
additional options, usually including help for that screen. On Google
Play edition phones, this menu may be available from a button
below the main screen.

Google Now is about getting you just the right information, at just
the right time.
It tells you today's weather before you start your day, how much
traffic to expect before you leave for work, and even your favorite
team's score while they're playing.
For example, here's a Google Now card that appears when you're
about to start your commute home:
After you decide to start using Google Now, you don't need to do
anything else. If you like, you can fine-tune some settings, but
Google Now doesn't need any elaborate setup. The information you
need is always at your fingertips.
How it works
1:10 to Home
Heavy traffic on US-101 N
When you decide to use Google Now, you're also turning on
Location Reporting and Location History:
• Location Reporting allows Google to periodically store and
use your device's most recent location data in connection
with your Google Account. Location Reporting is a per-device
• Location History allows Google to store a history of your
location data from all devices where you're logged into your
Google Account and have enabled Location Reporting.
Google won't share this information with other users or marketers
without your permission.
You can control how Google Now uses your current location. To
view the relevant settings, go to Settings > Personal > Location.
When location services are turned on for your account on a given
device, certain apps can use them to give you more relevant
information, such as nearby restaurants or commute traffic.
If you opted in to Location History in the past, Google Now uses
your previously recorded locations as well as ongoing locations
when making suggestions. Turning off Location History pauses the
collection of location information, but it doesn't delete your history.
To know when to display what information, Google Now uses
contextual data from your device and from other Google products,
plus data from third-party products that you allow Google Now to
For example, if you have searches stored in your Web History,
Google Now can show cards based on sports scores, flight status,
and so on. To manage your Web History, visit google.com/history/.
You can delete or pause your Web History and still use Google Now,
but certain kinds of information, such as flight details, won't show
Similarly, Google Now can use data that you may have stored in
third-party products that you allow Google to access. For example,
your device's synced calendar may include entries from non-Google
calendar products. If you have a synced calendar entry for a dentist
appointment that includes the dentist's address, Google Now can
check traffic and suggest when to leave.
Give it a try
You have a chance to turn on Google Now when you first set up
your phone or tablet. You can also turn it on or off at any time:
1 . Touch the Google search bar on a Home screen.
2. Touch Get Google Now if you don't already have it. Or, to
access the menu for the next step, perform a Google search
3. Open ■ Menu > Settings and turn it on (or off) from there.
To open Google Now, follow the steps for your device:
• All Nexus devices: Swipe your finger up from the bottom of
• Nexus 5: In addition to swiping up from any screen, you can
swipe to the leftmost Home screen.
• Google Play edition devices: Touch & hold the Home button.
When you want to see more cards, touch More at the bottom of the
screen. When you don't need them any more, swipe them out of the
NEXUS 5 TIP: To dismiss a card on Nexus 5, swipe from left to

Updates appear in the form of Google Now cards. When you don't
need a card any more, swipe it out of the way.
That's all there is to it. Google Now is always working for you as
you go through your day. If you want, you can adjust the way
certain cards get updated:
• Set reminders: Touch the Reminders icon.
• Specify your sports teams, stocks, places, and more: Touch
the Customize icon.
• Answer questions about an individual card: Touch the ;

available, visit google.com/now.
Tell Google what to do
You can speak to your phone or tablet to search, get directions,
send messages, and perform other common tasks. To initiate a
Voice Action or Voice Search from Google Now or a Home screen,
say "Ok Google" or touch the \f Microphone icon.
Note; For devices other than Nexus 5, saying "Ok Google" works in
Google Now, but not on Home screens. This feature is currently
available in English only.
IMPORTANT: To detect when you say "Ok Google" to launch
Voice Search or Voice Actions, Google analyzes sound picked up
by your device's microphone in intervals of a few seconds or less.
The sound is immediately discarded after analysis and is not
stored on the device or sent to Google.
To see some examples of what you can tell Google to do, say or
Turn hotword detection on or off
The ability to trigger a search or action by saying "Ok Google" is
called hotword detection. To turn it off or on, open Google Now or
the Google app and touch Menu > Settings > Voice > Hotword
Spoken answers are supported for English only at this time.
After you touch the Microphone icon or say "Ok Google," Google
listens as you speak and initiates the search or action you describe.
If Voice Search doesn't understand you, it lists some suggestions.
Just touch the one you want.
If you ask Google a question by speaking, the answer may be
spoken back to you. The answer can be a fact, weather condition,
stock price, flight status, sports score, currency conversion,
mathematical calculation, and more. Spoken answers are turned on
by default for Voice Search.
For examples and more details, visit Voice Search.
Voice Actions are supported only in English, French, German,
Spanish, and Italian.
You can use Voice Actions to perform common tasks, such as
sending an email or opening an app.
After touching the v}/ Microphone icon or saying "Ok Google,"
speak the Voice Action you want to use. Or say "help" to see
examples of the kinds of things you can tell Google to do for you.
• "Set alarm for 8:30 a.m."
• "Send email to Marcus Foster. Subject: Coming tonight?
Message: Hope to see you later."
• "Navigate to Mike's Bikes in Palo Alto."
For a list of Voice Actions you can try, visit Voice Action
Notifications & settings
Notifications alert you to the arrival of new messages, calendar
events, and alarms, as well as ongoing events, such as video
When a notification arrives, its icon appears at the top of the
screen. Icons for pending notifications appear on the left, and
system icons showing things like Wi-Fi signal , mobile carrier signal,
or battery strength on the right:
TIP: Wi-Fi and mobile signal strength are indicated at the top of
the screen by white bars. To see whether the selected Wi-Fi
network has a full Internet connection, open Quick Settings:
swipe down from the top right on tablets, or with two fingers on
In Quick Settings only, white bars in the Wi-Fi or mobile signal
indicators indicate the signal strength of a normal Internet
connection, while orange bars indicate that some web
services may not be functioning normally. For example,
sometimes the mobile signal bars turn orange briefly when you
turn on your device, until a full connection is established.
Also in Quick Settings only, you may notice small up or down
arrows just to the right of the Wi-Fi or mobile signal indicators.
The up arrow indicates data streaming from your device to the
Internet, and the down arrow data streaming from the Internet to
Certain notifications can be expanded to show more information,
such as email previews or calendar events. The one at the top is
always expanded when possible. To expand a notification, position
one finger inside it and swipe down slowly.
To open the related app, touch the notification icon on the left.
Some notifications also allow you to take specific actions by
touching icons within the notification. For example, Calendar
notifications allow you to Snooze (remind you later) or send email
to other guests.
When you're finished with a notification, just swipe it away. To
dismiss all notifications, touch the Dismiss icon at the top right.
