We had earlier reported that Google has started rolling out the Android 4.2.2 update for its Nexus devices. While yesterday we didn’t have any details as to what was included in the update, now that the updates are out finally, we do have some idea about the new features of the update brings along.
The Android 4.2.2 which promised ‘improvement in performance and stability’ turns out to be a minor release. Although it does take care of some backend bugs it fails include any specifically new features to the OS. A lot of minor tweaks, which were highly desirable, have been included in this update.
There is a status and estimated time meter show when installing new apps. This feature has been appreciated compared to the earlier background installation. Also the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi of the device can be turned on and off with just a long press on the tile. This feature reduces the number of steps to switch on the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
While most of these features have already been seen in custom ROM’s it is good to see that these features have now been incorporated in the OS itself. Maybe we would get to see the new features in the upcoming Android 5.0 to be launched in May.
