Soon after Android 4.1.1 made itself available on the AOSP servers yesterday, it’s been ported to the yet-to-be-shipped Nexus 7 tablet. Right now the Nexus 7 Android 4.1.1 update is being rolled out via OTA to only in the hands of Google I/O attendees, who grabbed it at conference.
Weighing 12.6MB in size, the new Android 4.1.1 update improves performance and responsiveness system wide. Build as number JR003C, the update also goes on to pimp out some of the newer features of Jelly Bean, including Google Now and the new notifications.
Everything seems to be same as it was before the upgrade, though a range of improvements and features are following:
- The unlock action from the lock screen was previously a little sluggish and presented a slight pause. That pause is now gone, and it’s lightning-quick.
- The Google Now up-swipe gesture is much smoother and the Google Now landing page appears more quickly.
- Google Wallet has been added.
For those haven’t been treated with latest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update can pop into Settings>About>System updates to pull it.
New owners will likely be greeted with the Android 4.1.1 software update upon firing up their Nexus7s for the first time, I guess.
Seeing any new feature or improvements aside of I mentioned above? Sounds off in comments below!
