The New Jelly Bean Update has been Rolled Out by Google

User Rating: / 8

Google has started to roll out Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update. This is being done to Nexus branded units like GSM Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4 and Samsung Nexus 7 and 10. The update is likely to bring in nothing much but stability and performance fixes. The current update is small in size. It will be 47.6 MB.

Most importantly, a bug that has been related to streaming music over a Bluetooth A2DP connection has been finally fixed. The Bluetooth problem of streaming ended up with some skips during the playback of music when the Nexus devices were coupled with speakers that were using the short range wireless technology.

This update is likely to be rolled out on a gradual basis to the specified devices. Very few users have been able to successfully update so far. Owners of the specified phones and tablets may have to keep checking for updates to appear and look for notifications. It will take time to affect the Nexus smartphones and tablets.

It should not come as a surprise that this update of Jelly Bean is not bringing about many new features because Google is very much likely to introduce the next important release of its Android 5.0 or Key Lime Pie. This is probably going to be at its I/O (Input/Output) Conference which is three months from now.

There is much expectation that Android 5.0 may deliver a `Google Now’ widget with enhanced support for multiple accounts and a tweaked user interface.
