Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean Features: What’s New

By  | 

Despite the fact that Jelly Bean 4.2.2 hasn’t been made official yet it still hasn’t stopped some people getting their hands on the update and testing it. While tests have not been live, some people have placed with it behind the scenes and then go on Twitter to report what is new.

Those who have said they have checked out Jelly Bean 4.2.2 have all said the same. The update is not stable and there are bugs which have to be ironed out before it can be released to the general public. We have scanned the web and found some Tweets from those who have tested it out, so you may wish to check them out.

It was said yesterday that the official Android 4.2.2 Jelly bean was released for the GMS version of the Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus 7 and 10, this having a build number of JDQ39. However looking deeper into this, readers have said that they have not got the update. This could be due to the fact that it is rolling out slowly. Those who have installed the update have said that it is good as it has stopped their Nexus device from rebooting at random times.

@wsjudd as tweeted that their Nexus 10 now has the new Android 4.2.2 and is happily using the command line, oh and he feels like a ninja apparently.

Android Police said that app download notifications are better and there are new sounds along with toggle from quick settings. They say when users connect to the computer for the first time they are notified that they have a connection. Which means there has been a little security upgrade to keep the bootloader locked device safe in the event it is lost. There are also new sounds to tell you when the battery is low and for wireless charging initiation.

@ssaig tweeted that they noticed the app download notification, he said that it has changed and that the progress bar lets users know the time that is remaining in addition to a percentage downloaded. He also said in another tweet “Removed option to show all calls in the phone app’s call list, New Gallery app animation allows faster loading”

@NittyMDev said “Quick settings have been enhanced. Users can now long press on the Wifi and Bluetooth icons to toggle the setting”

So what do you think, will this be the last of Jelly Bean and will Key Lime Pie take over?
