    After updating to 4.4 all of my Nexus devices (4, 7 & 10) have problems with wifi, they all worked fine before the update. After some idle time they lose the wifi connection and it can only be reactivated after restarting the device.

    The Nexus 7 right now doesn't connect to wifi at all, I can set the wifi switch to 'on' in the settings but it won't even show available wifis (see screenshot).

    Anyone else experience this? Any ideas on how to resolve it? Without wifi the device is pretty much useless.

    When will my device get the Android 4.4 update (KitKat)?

    Android 4.4 (KitKat) was officially announced on October 31, 2013.

    (You can review the high level changes in KitKat at the official Android Developer's site or the announcement on the official Android blog.)

    Of course, not all devices will get this update right away and others won't get it at all. Each manufacturer and carrier often choose to add their custom modifications which tend to delay the official release.

    When will each device get Android 4.4, either officially or unofficially, if ever?
