Android 4.2, Jelly Bean | First look from inside

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is now officially announced, following Google's announcement of the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10.With Android 4.2, Google isn’t offering up a new name instead its jelly bean.
Here are some of the new features users can look forward to in Android 4.2

Multiple Users 
Android 4.2 Jelly Bean for tablets offers multiple user-support to the OS.Tablets are usually shared between household members.This way everybody within the household will have an account, which once logged in, welcomes them to their own homescreen, background, widgets and apps.

New Photo Sphere Camera

Google introduced the Panorama capturing mode within the android 4.0 and now with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean users experience a Classyl feature dubbed Photo Sphere.The  Photo Sphere are shareable and can be added to Google Maps.

Gesture Typing

Google Modernized the keyboard in Android 4.2.The latest Jelly Bean release features swipe-style typing on the stock keyboard.Users just glide their fingers across letters rather than having to type them one by one.The Gesture typing feature advantages from the already existing android word prediction, thus you'll simply click on the words the keyboard suggests. This comes additionally to the offline voice typing service that Google offers, that makes for an well-rounded nice messaging experience.

Wireless TV integration

Google is enabling wireless video playback that will play content from a phone or tablet onto a TV.All you need to do is connect a wireless display adaptor to an HDMI-enabled then TV it's going to begin mirroring whats on your screen.Google isn’t using DLNA and is instead going to need users to get a wireless display adaptor. Another difference is that content are going to be reflected onto another device, instead of displayed as secondary screen.


Google has integrated a feature called Daydream, which is simply a sort of a screensaver. Once turned on, you can set it up to show photo albums, latest news from Google Currents and more when the device is either docked or idle. This means it can show photos or display the news.
