Big Red let us know that we would be seeing the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the DROID RAZR HD and the DROID RAZR HD MAXX in a week, and now the update is officially here! Owners of the device(s) will now get to experience in the smoothness that comes with Project Butter. By now, just about everyone should be aware as to what Jelly Bean brings to the table, but if you’re still not sure, Motorola has outlined a few things that was included in the update:
- Google Now – Shouldn’t your phone be able to anticipate what you’ll need throughout your day? With Google Now, you get answers before you even have to ask. Real-time notifications let you know whether you should pack an umbrella for later in the day or if you need to grab the train to avoid the accident that’s backing up I-495. Plus, you’ll receive the score of your favorite team’s game from last night. Though Google Now can’t make your morning coffee, it will provide you the convenience you want to keep you one step ahead.
- Voice Search – Want a voice-search experience that doesn’t only work in TV ads? Google Voice Search on Android™ 4.1 lets you speak your questions directly into your phone. Run a quick search that will give you everything from great Italian restaurants on the Lower East Side to the next train leaving from Clark and Lake. And if you want to test Google Voice Search’s foreign language skills, go ahead. It currently supports 34 languages from around the globe.
- Richer Notifications – Its always good to see a missed call or new email notification, but wouldn’t you rather just take action? With Android™ 4.1, now you can. You just received a meeting reminder and know your call is running long. No problem, you can tap once to email the team that you’ll be there in a few minutes. Missed calls can be returned with a single tap, all right from the notification shade.
There are a plethora of bug fixes in this update, but one thing a lot of users will be happy to hear is that the preloaded Color application has been removed and replace by the Amazon suite of apps, which is what we’ve already seen on the HTC DROID DNA. If you haven’t grabbed the update just yet, make sure to check your device for it! You don’t want to be missing out on the sticky goodness that this update brings! If you have downloaded the update already, make sure to let us know what you think of it in the comments below!
Now lets hope that these phones won’t be dropped like a hot potato and will get Android 4.2 in the next few months or so. Of course, that is wishful thinking, as it’ll take quite some time for Verizon to get their own act together and push the update out after Motorola finishes it. Ah, well, one can still have hope, right?
