Android 4.1 or commonly known as Jelly Bean had a recent update on mid-November 2012, and now its Google’s efforts that made the difference. The 4.2 update is Google’s Android and aims to roll-out to Nexus 10 tablet and Nexus 4 smartphone. This new Jelly Bean update is geared to supply more significant features and several changes that will make android devices more user-friendly.
Some of the great addition to Android 4.2 is the Multiuser Support. Even on the same device each user can have their own screen, wallpaper, apps and general setting. All this according to each user’s preferences and cannot be access by another person. So, you can now share your tablet with your friend without worrying about your settings.
Also, there is a new multi-layered security system feature that came from third party sources. These apps are already built-in with the Android 4.2 update and they will track any malicious code as well as any suspicious activity from any installed apps. Once they detected an anomaly within your device, it will notify you for any concerns.
Google has also added a new support system for live programs that can run even on lock screen mode. Most of the default programs that you can choose are Digital Clock, Messaging, Gmail, Calendar and Sound search. You can also access your camera app and Google Now intelligent assistant even when your screen is locked.
But one of the most significant features on this update is the Photo Sphere. This particular app takes the same technology of Google Street View. So, you can now share 360-degree images that are both interactive and realistic, but they can only be viewed on Google+ or any android device.
Overall, the new Android 4.2 is considered by many users to be the best update for the Jelly Bean. Although, it is more one-side at the moment and favors only Google’s mobile devices - it’s still a great update and would benefit other Android-based gadgets in the future.
