It is very easy to enable new runtime environment (ART) on devices running Android 4.4 kitkat. You must have developer options enabled in your settings.

- Go to Settings > Developer Options > Runtime.
- Select "Use ART".
- It will ask you for a reboot. Reboot device. A system update is performed and you can use ART.
- the only problem is many of your existing apps won't work now and need to be reinstalled/ updated.

Yes, I am also using the Nexus 7 which is completely based on 4.4 kitkat version. But, I am also not getting ART. Are you sure, it is for all kitkat 4.4 version.
