Speed is a theme for the update, and the Nexus 5′s camera really does feel faster across the board. The app launches a full second quicker than it did before the update, meaning you’ll miss many fewer shots than before.

Update: Google has started rolling out the 4.4.1 update- check your device to see if you have received the update.
