If you have already downloaded and installed the new Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update on your Nexus device, you would be wondering about the new features included in the update. The search engine giant did not release any change log with the update. But a few blogs, such as Android Police, did compile a list of new features included in the update. They, of course, had to work hard to detect and report each and every tiny new feature.
But today, the company has finally announced a change log of the update. Along with this change log, the company also published a list of everything else that comes along with the Jelly Bean package. There are a lot of bullet points on the list, but those marked as new are the additions to the original Android 4.2 package. Arstechnica writes, “the change log does include some of the minor features not previously touched on, like networking changes that were made to improve Wi-Fi Direct support and faster captive portal detection. Updates also include minor features, like the fact that Talk Back can now be accessed right from the power menu. You can also view the entirety of the Google Cards updates that have been made in Android 4.2.”
So, if you are interested, you can check out the official change log over here. Now, once the device manufacturers make their version of the Android 4.2.2 ROM for their devices available, we can expect the developers over at XDA to come up with even better ROMs. We have always seen these developers add new features to the already awesome feature rich base of Android. And if there is one company that learnt a lot with this is Samsung.
The company introduced a few features on its recent smart phones that were only available with custom ROMs or apps which required rooting the smart phones. This is the kind of features that we are looking for in official ROMs. A customizable notification bar toggles, or the battery percentage indicator, and stuffs like that. Anyway, now that you have the complete list of new features in the Android 4.2.2 OS, play with yours.
