Not too long ago, Sprint officially released a new software update for the LG G Flex, which brought the device up to the latest version of Android, but also brought WiFi Calling to the mix. Now it’s HTC’s 2014 flagship to get the same treatment.

Confirmed by Sprint on July 15, the wireless carrier’s branded version of the HTC One (M8) has been granted permission to receive a software update. The update will bring the Android version on the flagship handset up to Android 4.4.3, KitKat, but it doesn’t necessarily change anything when it comes to the visuals. But that doesn’t mean it’s a weightless update, either.

The biggest addition to the One (M8) for Sprint is the WiFi Calling feature. But, if you love to get new apps on your device, too, then the addition of an HD Voice icon in your applications tray may just make your day. There are also some squashed bugs behind the scenes, as well as some performance tweaks.

The update is available now for the One (M8), and Sprint has officially begun rolling it out, but these updates generally take time to reach every device activated on the network.
