Sorry Indians! The next version of Android is out and your campaign has been no-more appreciated. Dubbed Android 4.2, this new version of the Google’s operating system carries the Jelly Bean moniker, though does pack several new features and improvements.
Along with the awesome Photo Sphere feature the new OS brings multiple user-supports on the tablet devices. The new Panorama mode allows users to capture photos in multiple directions (up, down, left, right) [screenshot below]. Check out photo spheres from a few photographers here.
The expandable notifications were a welcomed addition in Android 4.1, but now in Android 4.2, you can also take various actions like toggling WiFi, adjusting screen brightness, go to Airplane mode, and more. Other features also include enhancements to the lockscreen with widgets and camera access, multi-user support on tablets, and improvements to Google Now and accessibility. [screenshots below]
Moreover, bringing adding Swype like functionality, the new ‘Gesture Typing’ feature has been added in the latest Android version, allowing users to type by gliding their fingers over letters – with the functionality of predicting the next word, similar to SwiftKey [screenshot below].
Additionally, the new Wireless TV integration feature will lets users share the screen of their phone or display with a big screen TV set wirelessly – thanks to Miracast.
