By  | 

The Jelly Bean 4.1 update for the Motorola Droid Razr HD and the Razr Maxx HD had been announced by Verizon. However Verizon did not mention anything about when the update would be rolled out. Now Motorola have put the owners of the phone at ease as they have confirmed that the update will be rolling out in stages to both of the handsets starting from today.

Motorola have also said that owners who have not yet got it shouldn’t worry as the update will be available manually very soon.

Just last week Verizon made Motorola Droid Razr HD owners aware of the update officially. Owners of the two handsets will be able to get the 276MB update, in the form of 9.1.41.XT926.Verizon.en.US. The update will give owners of the devices many improvements, which include Google Now, improvements to the keyboard and voice and data connections. Verizon posted the changelog on their website and you can read this below.

If you own either of the two Droids you can check to see if you can update to Jelly Bean 4.1 by going into Settings>About Phone> System updates. If you don’t see anything just keep checking the notification area for your alert. The new features include.

VOICE SEARCH

Sometimes you’d rather just speak your search query. Android lets you search the web with your voice, and it’s convenient for getting quick answers on the fly. It speaks back to you and is powered by the Knowledge Graph, bringing you precise answers and ranked search results.

NOTIFICATIONS

Take action directly from the notifications panel. Send emails, return calls, share photos and more. Notifications are expandable and you scan multiple emails, see event details or full images and more.

SMART KEYBOARD

More accurate and relevant dictionaries have been implemented. Jelly Bean’s keyboard guesses the next word before you type it and voice typing now works even when you don’t have a data connection, and text-to-Speech capabilities have been improved.

GOOGLE NOW

Just the right information at just the right time. Get today’s weather before you start your day, know how much traffic to expect before you leave for work and when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform. Cards appear throughout the day automatically.

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
